When the kids ask if they can cook something, they invariably mean that they want to eat what ever they've made in about 5 minutes. They like baking but lose interest while the cakes or biscuits are in the oven, and then I end up doing the decorating while they're playing. This week they asked whether they could make smoothies, which I thought was perfect for their limited attention span in the kitchen. This proved a great way for them to eat some red fruits they wouldn't generally eat, but obviously they were long gone by the time it came for clean up!
