It is Lisa from Confessions of an Apron Queen here today. I am your new head tackler here at 5 Minutes for Mom and I am excited for my first day on the job…
There is a reason I wear an apron. It’s because I’m a messy cook. And it tends to get even messier when our two girls join me in the kitchen. We recently tackled preparing some of our favorite Italian dishes for a fun little blog series I’ve been working on about Italy.
Not to mention, cooking is always messier when I’m working on a blog post. Typically, I struggle to keep my messes out of the camera’s viewfinder. I’m not a clean-up-as-you-go type of cook either. I just shove everything onto the countertops beside me or behind me. By the time we are done in the kitchen, it generally looks like some sort of explosion. Food everywhere, dirty dishes everywhere!
Time to call in the clean-up crew! Oh wait, we are the clean-up crew. So, I guess I’ll put the little one on dishwashing duty. My girls are such wonderful helpers around the house. They truly enjoy their chores.
In fact, they both like sweeping the floor so much that they fight over the broom. OK, I just wish that were true. But, a Mom can dream can’t she?
We threw out the trash. We put food back away in the cabinets and refrigerator. We washed the dishes. We wiped down the countertops. We swept the floors. And the Italian pork chops are simmering away on the stove.
So, it’s time for the girls to put in a movie now. Because it’s Date Night for me and the hubby. Except, we aren’t going out. We’re just going to sit by our pool. No kids allowed. Time to catch up on conversation while sipping some wine and a nibbling from a fruit and cheese platter. It really doesn’t get any better than that.
