We’ve been in between sports since November. I’m not going to lie, the break from 2 practices a week and insane weekends of games has been very welcome. We’ve even decided to break up our sports a little and not do two at a time (for now). So, until t-ball starts in the spring, we’re left with filling our weekends with some fun activities.
When the Allen’s suggested we take the boys to a cooking class, I immediately tensed up. I can’t help but get anxious over the allergy factor. I’ve gotten a lot better, but it’s still something that haunts me when we try something new. To my relief, The Young Chef’s Academy in Frisco doesn’t even keep nuts on their property! I guess I’m not the only one! It’s a different story for Oscar who has to avoid eggs (along with peanuts), but I think his allergy to eggs is less severe. But, we decided he was too young anyways. So, off we went to cooking school!
|This little academy could not have been cuter. The kids were all given a turn to help with preparing the meal.|
|On the menu was apple berry salsa with cinnamon chips. Here, Walt and a friend are cutting strawberries (something Walt will eat!)|
|Walt was chosen to be a helper in juicing an orange. He loved it!|
Peanut allergy aside, I didn’t know how interested Walt would be because he’s not exactly a foodie. Turns out, he loves the process of preparing food – just less concern for actually eating it. But, to my surprise, he did try it! He ate a few of the strawberries in the “salsa” and ate the chips. I was proud and would totally take him back!
