When I Grow Up and a Biscuit Recipe
Yesterday, Destrie says to me, "Guess what I'm going to be when I grow up?" Then he tells me, "I'm going to be a food critic!"
I guess all these "recipe reviews" are rubbing off on him! This morning, I was making biscuits when Destrie woke up. He came into the kitchen and asked if he could help. I gave him his own ball of dough to roll out, he cut out the biscuits, put them on his own little baking sheet, and we baked them. He had so much fun and he loved the biscuits.
