There are always lots of chefs in our kitchen, whether I ask for them or not.
Lately I haven’t filled in my weekly menu and have let my chefs-for-the-day help plan the breakfasts and lunches that day. They love this. And since all four girls have been in the kitchen more (Rowan’s always in the kitchen), there have been new creations and experiments.
One thing that has definitely encouraged creativity and ownership in the kitchen for my older girls is letting them have a few of my “private” Pinterest boards. They have pinned everything from new recipes to make to DIY lip balm and doll clothing to motivational quotations.
