Last Friday Cricket decided to make a 4th of July dinner for the whole family.
I have to say Bill and I had our doubts. After all she just turned 14 and only enters the kitchen to get snacks and dessert.
But you know the whole parenting thing where you are supposed to encourage everything you kid wants to do and never crush their creativity no matter how messy it may be? That's not us. But someone else making dinner sounded good so we said go for it.
And boy were we impressed!!!
Red, White and Blue Deviled Eggs
Star Shaped Watermelon
American Flag Pizza
And for the finale, 4th of July Rice Krispie Treats
She also made a Red, White and Blue drink but I didn't get a good picture before we started slurping them down.
All in all it was a huge success and I am thinking I might be able to push some of my dinner duties off on her.
