It was a cold and rainy day today so I decided to make some oatmeal blueberry muffins with Bennett since I didn't want to leave the house. He loves to pull a chair up to the stove and "cook" with an empty bowl and spoons so I decided to try the real thing with him. But once we started dumping ingredients in, he couldn't keep his hands out of the bowl and from grabbing everything in sight to dump in the bowl too so I had to give him his own little bowl to cook in. Of course in keeping with his habit he's had since birth of putting anything and everything in his mouth, he just started eating the dry oats, even after he dumped some salt in pepper in there.

He loved putting the muffin cups in the pan

It was fun but I guarantee I won't be doing any more real cooking with Bennett for another 6 months :) I'll leave that up to his braver and less neurotic Nana.
