In reading Family Fun magazine the other day, I ran across an idea I couldn't wait to try- a cooking playdate. So on Friday, M had her little friend C over in the afternoon, and together they made dinner. (I had done all of the chopping, etc. beforehand)
At the end of their playdate, all of C's family joined us, and together we enjoyed the delicious dinner M and C had made. We kept the dinner simple, and it turned out great.
This is what they made:
Hamburger Vegetable Soup (recipe from Money Saving Mom)
Orange Jello with mandarin oranges inside and whipped cream on top.
Also, I picked up a cheap bouquet of spray roses at the grocery store and let M and C decorate the table with them. (It turns out that those tiny personal salt and pepper shakers make great bud vases)
