At least one of them wants to cook

Today was Monday.  Really Monday.  It was a very long Monday too.
I think the time change set me up for a bad Monday.  I just couldn't go to sleep.  Benadry didn't help.  I thougth about EVERYTHING.  If I know you, I thought about you last night.  I wondered what you were up to, how you were, why you aren't here visiting me...I planned a Christmas party in my head, worried about many things and then prayed for everyone I know.  So, I guess it wasn't totally a bad thing.
So, this afternoon when I picked up two hungry girls, we discussed what we would have for dinner, I was thrilled when Kellie asked "can I cook dinner all by myself?"  and I answered, of course you can my favorite child!

I had been planning on making Pioneer Woman's Chicken Parmigiana so decided it would be a good thing for Kellie to try.
 It turned out soooo good!
You'll want to have someone make this for you very soon while you sit on the bar stool sipping a nice beverage and giving instructions. It was easy and other than cutting up the chicken she did  it all!

When I got out the wine and had told her to add it.  She looked a little upset.   I had to explain that if we cooked the wine she could eat the sauce.

Oh, how I loved someone cooking for me and it was great!  Turned out she didn't get very excited when it was time to clean up...

My mom taught me how to cook and let me make supervised meals too. These are memories and tools she will have with her forever. I guarantee when she's 20-something and married and making chicken parmesan for her new husband and had a long Monday herself she'll remember the Monday she shared with you.

I remember those times with my mom.

YOu're such a good mom Cara. Loved this story!

Hope this tuesday is more restful and much shorter!
