We also were expecting guests that evening, a couple with nine children, so Girly Girl and I peeled lots of apples, making two pans of apple crisp for desert.
Here are my little dishwashers.
As hard as it is to have so much help in the kitchen, they really are a delight. My Girly Girl runs to get her apron on every time she sees that I am getting ready to make something. She pulls up a chair to help. I just love that.
