Abby's First By-Herself Dinner

I am so excited to share with you my daughter's first time preparing the entire evening meal. She has helped me cook many times, but never without me stepping in, teaching her how, chopping the onion, etc. It has always been a combined effort--which is special all in itself.

But this particular evening she wanted to prepare the whole meal from top to bottom without any help. She's 9 and perfectly capable, so I let her. I sat close by and kept a close eye out, but I didn't interfere at all. She cooked chili dogs for supper and got carried away on the clouds!

She boiled the hot dogs and warmed up the chili, yes, but she also puts Cheetos in a punch bowl and...well, you get the idea.

So very sweet!

She was so excited about fixing her special dinner that she went to her room and dressed up, putting an apron over it to keep clean.

Isn't she just the cutest?!

Here are some kids cookbooks we use and love (some covers have changed):
