Mom blog: Because I Said So! WFWM easy-clean mess-free kid cooking tip

wfmwsmall1-1.jpgIt’s Works for Me Wednesday and time for another spin on the Rocks in My Dryer blog carnival. (Refresher: A blog carnival is when a blogger poses a question or a theme and invites other bloggers to write about it in THEIR blog, then list their topic and link on the host’s blog.) So, after you’ve read my post (and commented, please comment), click on the link and you’ll go to the host of Works For Me Wednesdays and a list of 100 or more links to bloggers who are also posting things that work for them—recipes, parenting ideas, easy crafts, organizing tips, you get the idea.

th_dsc03316.jpgThis may look like a hangover cure, but it isn’t—it’s my easy-clean mess-free kid cooking tip. Luka and I hit on this because he loves omelettes and scrambled eggs and loves to help make them and I don’t love wiping up raw egg mix from the counter, kid and floor after he finishes an enthusiastic 7-year-old egg whip.
Everything goes in a Mason jar, I put the lid on, he shakes the crap out of it and gets to pour it in the pan. Then I put some soap in the jar, hot water, he shakes the crap out of it again (he doesn’t care what’s in the jar, obviously), I rinse with scalding water and the clean-up is finished too. It Works for Us!

If you have a tip to help with kids in the kitchen, please leave it here!

  1. Great idea! My 3-year-old loves to help me cook, and she definitely makes a mess. I’ll have to remember this. Love your blog, by the way. It’s one I’ll recommend on mine.

  2. great tip – my little guys LOVES eggs – I fix them for him every morning…he’s just 18 mos, but we’ll have to try your trick as he gets a little older!
    Thanks!
