A fort Joey and Lili built at an all-outdoor summer camp they attended a couple weeks ago.

Chef Lili

Lili has been cooking more, too! She can scramble and cook an egg, loves to measure and use the electric mixer for baking, scoops cookie dough like a champ, and can't seem to stop stirring things on a hot stove.
She's asked to cook dinner once a week "with help as needed" also so we're giving it a try starting tomorrow...

Chef Joey

Joey has been cooking more recently and has decided to cook dinner once per week. This means that he decides on a meal during the weekend, lets me know what ingredients he needs at the store, and prepares the meal on his cooking day.
The first time, he made spaghetti carbonara with a surprise brownie with caramel topping that he invented the recipe for.
He made honey sesame chicken last week.
Then this week, he made red beans & rice. I was so impressed since he did all the knife work himself (he's always had me cut onions for him prior to today) and all the cooking too. Everything he has made has turned out delicious as well.

Seven year old sweetie

Some things I don't want to forget about Lili - cute things she still says:

She pronounces children as "shildren"
She pronounces favorite as "frav-rit"
She pronounces breakfast as "breffix"
This weekend, she heard jacuzzi for the first time and then called it "kachoozi"

We will have to correct her probably sooner than later but it's so cute that I hate to do it...
