This is MyTeenSonMark.
He’s really old all of a sudden.
Like, 16 ripe years of age and everything.
The other day he came to me and said…”So Mom. I am going to ask this really cute girl out on a date and I had an awesome idea. What would you think about us cooking our very own dinner, right here in your very own kitchen. You could just help me choose some recipes that are easy for kids like me to make, and then you could get the groceries for us, and then you could just like be in the other room waiting around in case we needed some help or something. What do you think?”
What could I say, but “You bet, sounds like a blast!”
You know what happens when your son brings a cute date home to cook in your kitchen, don’t you? A Mama like me gets the chance to have a birds eye view, that’s what. 🙂 I like a birds eye view, don’t you?
Did I mention these kids are cute? You can see for yourself! I wasn’t pulling your leg now, was I. They cracked open my laptop, clicked over to this little ‘ol blog of mine and got busy cooking. I figured they would like reading the recipe instructions from my blog, more than they would appreciate me standing over them the whole time. So, I just kept to myself in the back room and came out every 5 minutes when they called for my assistance.
They did a great job cooking!
There was a small incident with cocoa powder spilling on the floor, and a whole stick of butter accidentally got dropped in the garbage can. However, all of the food they made turned out great! We left the butter in the garbage, thank you for asking.
They made Chocolate Hot Fudge Cake…
and Fettuccine Alfredo.
I made a bunch of Olive Garden Breadsticks for them earlier in the day as well. (Can’t have Alfredo without them, you know). They seemed to have a great time!
Here are a few more recipes that teenagers can make quite easily…in case you are looking for such a thing. Teenagers cooking in the kitchen is something I highly recomend.
