Noah still loves making muffins for Daddy every week. We make whole wheat muffins with yogurt instead of oil, and we add strawberries or blueberries (Noah's choice). We've made the recipe so many times that Noah can tell me all the ingredients we need and I put them on the counter, and he can do all the measuring by himself. He absolutely loves working in the kitchen.
Matt and Noah make pancakes every Saturday morning, and this last Saturday, Matt unloaded the dishwasher while Noah measured all the ingredients himself without a word of help from Matt. Isn't that cool? I don't think I can do that for any recipes!
Noah gets really excited when a new issue of Everyday Food comes to our house.
Yesterday we made a quick trip to the grocery store. When we got home, I needed to feed Isaac and I sat and watched Noah put away all our groceries in the right places - refrigerator or pantry. He even wadded up the grocery bags and put them in our baggie holder. I never said a word and certainly wouldn't ask our 3-year-old to put away our groceries.
If I had to make a prediction, I'd guess that Noah is going to be a chef when he grows up, and for his "side job" he'll also be a worship leader at a church. Matt says that he would support Noah becoming a chef only if he gets his MBA first and learns how to run a business. That sounds like a plan.
