I have my nephews visiting for a few days, (yes, in total this week I have 5 children!) Needless to say I am quite a spectacle out getting groceries etc.. It looks like I have 2 sets of twins and 1 toddler. They are all so close in age.
The kids get along wonderful, so that makes it much easier.
Yesterday while Lily was sleeping, and it was too hot to go outside, I thought I would try to entertain the older ones. We decided to have a "cook-off".
We had 2 teams, ingredients on the table with proper measuring cups and spoons, I read a banana bread recipe to them, and they had to remember quantities and order etc..
AND I set the timer for 20 mins!
Well, they finished with 1 mins and 49 seconds left, and boy did they have a BLAST!! The flour was flying, and the bananas were bruised! Since it was soo hot out, I didn't dare turn my oven on, so I cooked them outside on the BBQ! Then we had Frank do a blind taste test and guess whose bread was whose!!
