But wanted to blog about dd1 today.
She is very interested in cooking, loves cooking shows, magazines and cookbooks and even regularly borrows them from the library.
But she is quite timid in the kitchen and usually her cooking something involves me cooking it and her watching, lol.
But she has made shortbread a few times in the tmx on her own. So this afternoon she asked to make some and with no input made the shortbread (including making her own rice flour), baked it, made a ganache and put the chocolate coating on.
She was very proud of herself as was I. She'd never made ganache before and really used her initiative.
But there is no way in the world even with a recipe she would have felt confident using the stove top to melt the chocolate etc, so once again loving my tmx.
Have nearly convinced her that she would get such a great sense of achievement if she cooked dinner one night, told her to try something simple like stroganoff.
Oh and the highlight of my cooking week - would have to have been the wonton soup on Wednesday night. Just a plain chicken stock (of course made in the tmx) with lots of garlic and some chili, with yummy wontons (mixture made in the tmx). super quick and easy (I premade the stock and wontons) as we had to be out early for the girls evening school concert performance. Wonton soup has always been my favourite.
