A little chicken soup is a good thing,
made by an 8 yr old is even better!
Especially if it's full of dumplings in the end.
She hates regular canned chicken soup,
and hates onions
But loves them in the chicken and dumplings
because it's homemade
and tastes like real food.
Pops is the cook around here
and Taylor had her first lesson:
proper knife handling,
onion peeling and slicing
chopping the celery
and putting them in the pot properly
so they don't splash hot water all over the place.
In the pot they went with the chicken,
cooking for hours until it was time to
strain everything out.
It was a family affair
I picked the meat off the chicken bones,
and Pops added fresh vegetables
and made the dumplings.
For a girl that doesn't like canned chicken soup, she had two helpings!
By summer he'll be teaching her the art of Bar-b-Que.
It's a good thing, I never learned to cook when I was young
and while I might be able to cook basic things now,
I'm terrible at meal planning (so it all is done at the same time)
In fact, you'd better like to eat in courses with me at the helm.
How old were you when you were taught to cook?
