My boys LOVE cooking.
A little too much.
If I even walk into the kitchen Rocco & Roo pop up magically, out of nowhere,
"What are we making?" & "What can I do?"
I can't lie...drives me a tad bonkers.
& then I hand them kitchen tools
because there is NO WAY to get them away.
If I turn on a cooking show they jump on my lap to watch it too.
So when Bo got this little book from his school library,
and found this recipe...Castle Pies,
I knew it meant we were making Castle Pies.
All of us.
Luckily, there were jobs for everyone.
Rocco said, "Bo, I can tell you are a
great cook cause you made a huge mess," he was serious,
and by round 3 the shirt came off.
We were not crazy of the idea of
figs, cloves, pepper & honey filling,
so we filled those babies up with
cherry & raspberry pie filling.
And let me tell you those mini Castle Pies were way too good.
I had 3.
2 for me & 1 for the baby,
and I was too full to eat my dinner.
Annie grabbed my camera, as any blogging daughter would,
and caught Kelly taste testing, "What do you think Dad?"
Our only problem was:
He couldn't keep his hands off them while they were cooling.
I think he ate more than me,
and he still ate his dinner!
We might not live in a castle but we ate like kings.
The only things missing were our crowns.
(But you can bet we all would have been in crowns if I would have thought of it at the time.)
