Kitchen Helpers

A beloved wooden spoon and a crock full of bacon grease. Every kitchen needs these items!

Collin helped cook supper because I had a headache.

Abigail made dessert.

What great helpers you have! :o)

I hope to teach our kids to lend a hand like this - I love to cook with other people and it will serve them well to learn some skills in the kitchen before they "leave the nest". But that is years away! :)

Hope you're feeling better!

P.S. I checked out the link to your dinner - looks yummy! Reminds me of a recipe my mom always made growing up: Hungarian Cabbage. Kind of the same since you fry the bacon then add the shredded cabbage, but then you add a cider vinegar dressing to it. It's soooo good!

I have the same blue and white crock!
Handy kids are a BLESSING.

My hubs would love it if I had a crock of bacon grease in the kitchen! Seriously, I would score big points!

What a blessing to have older kids that can help when needed!

Can you send them to my house? ;)

BTW, my mom always had bacon grease in a Camp*bell's can on our stove...a crock is a MUCH nicer way to keep it!

I have so much to learn from you!

BACON GREASE! I don't know anyone that still uses bacon grease. Wow. I remember that when I was growing up.

Your kids are great for stepping in and doing the work. Of course, I guess the advantage is that they get to eat :)

I loved your comment on my post. There is a bible verse somewhere about gray hair and for the life of me I can't remember where. OT someplace.

I think our hair is about the same length too. It looks that way in your picture anyway.

Have a great week Tracy.

Those two-legged helpers are the best! I've got a couple and I wouldn't trade them for the world.
