Amy has been wanting to cook 'all by myself' for ages.
I am happy to have her assiste me, or even let her take the lead and assiste her but there has just been something stopping me from letting her cook solo.
I don't know... the knives, the gas, the thought of writing '7 yo cooking alone' on the fire insurance claim form...
But this holiday I decided I needed to just take the plunge.
Well, I'm still a chicken so she used a donut maker (like a jaffle maker but with donut shaped plates) and had her sister read the recipe for her and I sat in the corner of the kitchen drinking coffee and checking the emergency numbers and pretending I wasn't watching them but she did it.
All by herself!
(Yes, we watch too much food tv- she decorated the plate!)
