Most days Ani helps me make dinner. Sometimes Cameron pitches in, though he is usually watching Fritz and Adrian while Ani and I cook.
Ani has gotten pretty good at following directions and doing things like making salad dressings, preparing salads, mixing seasonings, etc. She’s truly a great help in the kitchen. Plus, as an added bonus she’s getting one on one time with me (or Jamie if Adrian is needing extra nursing time that day) which is pretty scarce in a family with four kids including a toddler and a newborn.
Jamie set a couple video podcasts on cooking to download to our AppleTV and both Ani and Cameron enjoy watching those very much. One of them is cooking basics and they are just loving that one.
