Who’s cooking dinner?

One of “E’s” favorite classes at school is her Wednesday cooking class.  She is turning into a mini-me with her love of cooking and baking. She is 9 year old and she is getting older and more independent but the other day when she said that she wanted to cook dinner for all of us, I was happy but shocked.   Now I was thinking scrambled eggs or even macaroni and cheese is what she had in mind but nope, she wanted to make breaded pork chops or also known as schnitzel from when we lived in Germany.

The other week in cooking class they learned how to make this and I guess she really liked it.  So now she wanted to show us her new cooking skills.


“E” deciding if she has made them thin enough. I wasn’t allowed to say anything either way and do you how hard that was?


Her pride and joy, breaded pork chops.


“E” is so excited that she is cooking the entire meal all herself.


She made 2 different spiced breadcrumbs for the pork. Both tasted delicious.

One of the things I am thankful for is that my mother taught me how to cook and bake at a young age. I did this with my oldest 2 kids now I get to do it all over again with my other 2 kids.

What was the first thing you remember that you learned to cook?

    I always loved to cook. The best class I took in high school was a cooking class–lots of fun, made some yummy stuff.

    And now I want some pork chops!
