Simple summer time filler...beginner's cooking classes.

Salads in a jar.  The ingredients were chosen by the girls.  Wide mouth quart jars were
used.  Dressings of their choice, were poured into the jar first.  With cutting mats in
place, they chopped the vegetables with dinner knives, eliminating the risk of cutting

Ingredients in the order they chose,were lightly placed in the jars.
With the greens at the top, so they would stay crisp.

At completion, they had one for each member of their family, and looked eager forward
to taking them home for dinner.  I told them to remember that people eat with their eyes
first.  I think the completed jars were a good example of that.

Just a little something from me, a grandma learning how to find projects for "older"
grandchildren to fill the summer hours.

How sweet! Your grand daughters will remember these days...I remember cooking with my grandmother. She taught me how to make mince meat cookies. Ick!!

I stopped by a girlfriend's house yesterday. She had her grand daughter there and they were painting rocks. So cute!

I agree with Stacey, they will hold the memories of this day for the rest of their lives. What a great idea you had to keep the girls busy and learning such a valuable skill at the same time. I'm thinking this will also make salad lovers out of them (if they weren't already).

You and I have been enjoying the same kind of activities. The salads are a great idea and I love how you teach them that people eat first with their eyes. So true.

Well, those look delicious and what a neat project. I'll have to remember that for when my girlies are a little older. Cute post!
