Cookin’ Like Her Mama III

I think, by now, my daughter can sense when the household is getting busier than normal. Or maybe she just gets tired of me making spaghetti whenever I’m stressed. Six of one, I would imagine…

I also know she’s a creature of great tradition. Tell her ‘family dinner’ and she will be the first one helping and planning. It isn’t often the, now, four of us all end up sitting down at the same time. Or for the same food. I sort of cringe whenever she says, “I want to make dinner for the family tonight!” because I know we are more than likely short on ‘two things that match’, as the line goes.

But, I do love seeing her command the kitchen by herself and utilizing the “hacks” she’s learned on Youtube like opening pop top cans with a butter knife (what’s the worst that can happen?!) and saving away unused portions of things. Everyone gets a normally dormant seasonal placemat from the buffet, one piece of silverware and a ‘YUGE cup of water…with a straw. And we chat and eat her dinner happily…then send her sister out for Culver’s after bedtime.

Even though peas mixed with butterscotch pudding is not actually quite as repugnant as you’d think, hold on to your eyeballs…and your stomachs, friends.


In case you missed it, here are some other InstaWorthy foodie offerings from her vast gourmet repertoire. Enjoy! Part One And Part Two

Have a great week, everyone!

    1. Thank you! πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€— Ah yes but the real question is…does your *STOMACH* smile??? Lmao! I’m still working on that part!


      1. I actually thought the food choices were adorable. Not for everyday mind you, but enjoyable just the same! Gotta love her creativity and gourmet chef-ness! πŸ™‚

        1. Hahah, can you imagine every day like this πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ She introduced it as “peanut butter pudding” and i knew it had to be butterscotch. She said there was only one so she split it evenly….there were many more but luckily she didn’t see them πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


          1. Lucky you! Just kidding… I’m more of a fan of peanut butter than butterscotch too! πŸ™‚

    1. She’s an excellent baker but could definitely benefit from a junior cooking class!


  3. Oh peas, I loathe the. They took over any additional comment I may have had πŸ˜‰. Peas are so weird and yucky.


    1. Sweet peas are delishiss but I admit that the thought of frozen peas, in general, is one best left unthought! 😊


      1. Peas eat candy for dinner. They eat spinach for dessert. What am I talking about? Any clue?
        That’s all I’ve got regarding peas. Peas and corn pudding belong together. Neither make sense. Both look like they might taste good but it’s a terrible taste betrayal. I’m grudge holding. Damn you peas and corn pudding. I oughta 🀜🏻 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.


        1. Lolling @ ‘why I ‘oughta’ πŸ˜‚


  4. Aww, that’s sweet. Would be hard to get it down, but hey – you’re a champ!
