Guest Chefs

My daughter Livy and her friend Ashi made dinner tonight. I kind of finagled them into it so I didn't have to, hee hee hee. I asked them what they were going to do and threw a few ideas out there and also told them there was chicken and a some veggies in the fridge if they wanted to cook and come up with their own creation for dinner. Smart, huh!! They made a yummy, juicy roast chicken with loads of herbs and lemon, romanesco broccoli with caramelized red and yellow onions and parmesan cheese, and steamed quinoa. For dessert they made a blueberry and raspberry cobbler. Ron did the dishes. Call me lady luck tonight!

Words From The Guest Chefs

Ashi: We had so much fun making dinner! It felt like we were real chefs!
Livy: I agree! The kitchen is such a fun and relaxing environment.
Ashi: Except when you get overwhelmed with food being done, or ready for the next step and your in the middle of something else.
Livy: It was especially nice to sit down and eat our delicious dinner after cooking it.
Ashi: My favorite thing to cook was the the chicken.
Livy: My favorite thing to eat was the chicken skin, and to cook it was to sauté the onions with garlic and cheese and the broccoli Ashi made.
Ashi: I think the easiest part was to steam the broccoli because all I had to do was put it in a colander on top of a pot of boiling water! But even though it was so easy it was still very exciting and fun!!!
Livy: I think that making the quinoa was easiest. And like Ashi said it was still very exciting and fun.
Ashi/Livy: It was so much fun to make dinner for the family.
Livy: Check out my blog, click on my name at the top of this post!
Ashi: PS. I am the dirty blonde with braids and I want to be a chef!
Livy: PSS. I am the brunette with hair down and I want to be a fashion designer!
