What’s On Your Tongue?

My cupboards are always messy.
My burners always smoke when they’re turned on.
My stove is always  a caked-on mess.
But, all my kids cook better than I do.
I clean better, but that has been necessary
follow-up for their cooking endeavors.
Awhile back, Rebekah decided to make Strawberry Shortcake.
I’m not even sure how she got the idea,
but she just started baking it…
…with a recipe and without help from me.
Golden delicious shortcake cooling on the rack.

It was just waiting for the whipped cream and strawberries.

One delighted cook, enjoying the fruits of her labor.
They were so good, she whipped up a batch
for a dress-up tea party she was invited to attend.
For a special touch, we used small cookie cutters for our
slices of strawberries.

Adorable little shortcakes,
made by my adorable daughter.
This is why I keep wiping up my stove,
over,
and over,
and over,
and over,
again.
Occasionally, I fuss and crank at the kids for making messes,
then their creations fill my mouth,
 and there isn’t enough room for the complaints.

    There goes my diet! Those look so yummy I am instantly craving one. If food like that appeared in my house without me making it, I'd be willing to clean too!

    Those look amazing! I love strawberry shortcake, and can't wait until I get some fresh strawberries from my garden…and my mom's too, because mine isn't nearly big enough. 🙂
