I know what you came here for and if you are anything like me then scrolling through a ton of texts & photos for a recipe is super disappointing – especially if the page keeps reloading. So I’ll make this easy!
Look at that! I made a recipe template. Oh, and there is the recipe. Keep scrolling for photos and all that text that I initially saved you from!
For those of you that follow me on Instagram, you are more than aware that my food photography needs some SERIOUS work. For those of you that are new here…. well I’m sorry ?
We recently purchased a learning tower for the kitchen so CJ can help me cook. It safely puts her right up to the counter height. She helped me dice the onion and tomatoes for this recipe and insisted on trying raw onion. Her 23 month old taste buds were less than impressed.
She is also pretty obsessed with my DSLR. It’s got quite the mileage on it being a Canon Rebel t3i, so I do let her play with it from time to time. I’m not too worried because it is getting much older and I’m honestly day dreaming about a new camera. My husband is probably thinking “keep dreaming” as he reads this, I’m sure.
There is a shot of her cute little hand helping me to arrange a semi post worthy shot.
The learning tower is a lot of fun for both of us though. Her willingness to try food while we are up there prepping together has really improved. I can’t get her to eat a tomato in her high chair, but at the counter she’ll gladly eat extra pieces of the tomatoes as we dice them. She also gets a close up view of the clean up process. She has taken to wiping the counters down while I rinse the dishes.
I’m really hoping to engrain cooking into her. I didn’t learn how to cook as a kid and had to dive in after marriage. I’m hoping CJ will have those kitchen skills or just the general knowledge of where her food comes from & what she’s putting into her body. My dream is that she won’t grow up to live on ramen & takeout…. so I’m starting her young!
If you have made it this far and didn’t skip out post-recipe, I am truly appreciative of your dedication! I hope you enjoy the recipe! They were very delicious and we can’t wait to eat the leftovers.
