Cooking with Molly

The camera has been found!!
A few weeks back Molly requested that we get an Auntie Anne's pretzel kit - ok maybe she threw it in the cart and when I tried to remove it she let her opinion be known. Tonight she found the kit in the back of the pantry and ever so nicely asked if we could make the pretzels. Since Jon was not home and there was no end in site I thought - why not that should take an hour or two and at least she will learn something. She helped me mix the yeast and learned another lesson in patience as we had to let it dissolve and then another lesson when the dough had to sit for 30 minutes. After the dough was ready we rolled it out and tried to look like the people in the mall twisting the pretzels and failed but at least we laughed! We baked the pretzels while Molly continued to "cook" with a bowl of water and a spoon. When they were done we tried to share some with our neighbors but no one would answer their door at 8:30 so we ate the cinnamon sugar and saved the salted ones for later.

I think Auntie Anne would hire us on the spot!
Daddy and Molly sharing - the kit was really good and it did taste like Auntie Anne's. I think it will be a redo since it was so fun!
Riley looking on wishing she was allowed to eat - maybe in a few months.
While we got Molly ready for bed Riley managed to roll over to the plate left on the floor. Instead of taking her off I made sure to get a picture first. Good thing there was no pretzel left or that might have been her first food - I am pretty sure she did get a little sugar because she was sucking her hand a little harder than normal.

I love it! Maybe if you guys have some time when you are in TX Molly and Mariah can "cook cook" together. They could be quite the team :)We are excited to see you, it's extra fun to see friends who have kids so close to our girls ages. I love reading the blog, we can relate so very much :)
