Getting Cooking!

I love getting in the kitchen with the girls! They just love to "help," in whatever way possible. I use that term loosely because most days, when I am trying to get dinner on the table by a certain time, they are banned from the kitchen because they can get underfoot and will pull out random ingredients or utensils and just make a mess.

But on the days when I can slow down and include them in on the process, it's fun for everyone.

Today the girls and I were making some bread and some Banana Swirl. Grace repeatedly referred to it as Banana Squirrel, which, I assure you, would not be as appetizing.

 So, Banana Swirl is very simple but surprisingly tasty. Take 3 bananas (or more,) that are not overripe, slice up, and let freeze until hard. Put frozen banana slices into blender on high for about 30 seconds. I added about 1/4 cup milk to make ours smoother. It comes out smooth like ice cream! The girls ate it up.
 But not before Sophia ran SCREAMING out of the room when she saw the blender. Apparently she has some bad memories associated with it.

 Then, we made the bread and we sat.
 And sat.
 And Grace eventually asked:

"How long is the bun in the oven for?"

 "Nine months, sweet girl, nine months."
We're excited to announce Baby Galloway number 3 is on it's way!
Expected March 1st, 2015

 It's no secret, Grace wants a sister again.
But, if it's a boy?
His name shall be Bacon.
