Of course the dish we are making has beans in it, just call me the bean queen. I can probably make beans 15-20 slightly different ways.
I am lucky enough to have three little boys that want to help in the kitchen right now, but hopefully not all at once. It is fun to have a single junior chef; it is chaos to have three. David is my most likely volunteer for the job, although they all like it. He has become quite proficient at leveling a scoop and cracking eggs into a measuring cup. David also likes to take pictures which is another hobby of mine and he is the only child that resembles me in the slightest. If I had a mini-me, it would be him. Making pumpkin chili by myself is not nearly so entertaining.
