I was looking through some old photo albums and thought I'd share a little bit about my beginnings in the kitchen.
|Do you think my plate was big enough?|
If I wasn't helping dump and stir you might find me IN the cupboard.

|Child-proof locks, yeah right.|
Nikki and I loved to make cookies together.
Remember when I told you about the wooden spoon I've been using for twenty years? That's the same one I'm holding in the picture above. We also still have the yellow mixing bowls and orange measuring cups. The red and green sippy cups (below) no longer participate in cookie making.
Cookies were a two person (plus a mom) job, one to hold the bowl and one to stir. I couldn't even fit my arms around the bowl!
After making a gigantic mess I would help clean up...
...by licking the spatula, bowl and beaters. Apparently "clean up" resulted in spreading the batter all over myself, oops.
So many memories were made in this kitchen. I find it amusing that the counter tops were (and still are) blue. No wonder I love blue and being in the kitchen. Thanks, mom!
