This past Saturday, I cooked some fresh, healthy, freezable meals for some friends of mine and had the opportunity to spend time with some very special “Kitchen Assistants” – their two adorable daughters. Both Mom and Dad were super busy for the day, which left us ladies in charge – well, at least of the kitchen……
Believe you / me, that place was totally humming with activity as we stirred, chopped, sauced, roasted, and assembled our way through our chosen recipes. The entire house smelled better than a restaurant, and since we had our own ‘tunes playing, we controlled the level of noise – and fun!
And here is the casserole fresh from the oven….
Next, we set our sights on the Individual Taco Cups from Meggan over at Kitchen Anatomy Blog. Totally cute, these little tasty wonders are the easiest, fastest, most fun way to hold your ingredients together ever.
In addition to making them as Meggan’s recipe calls for, we said “How fun would it be to make these with chicken, corn, diced green chiles, and have them be a bit different for the meat-eater vs. the veggie eaters?” – or “Dessert cups, with some fruit, some chocolate, marshmallows, and maybe some mint on top as a garnish after they come out of the oven?” – yep, my kinda recipe: endless varieties with basic ingredients.
Here they are ready to
devour eat like a lady totally enjoy!! Get in that kitchen of yours and start cooking. Thanks, Kitchen Assistants, for spending Saturday time with me (and the food!)
