Each and every evening, I make it a point to get my two kids involved in the entire dinner making process. I get them to help with the ingredient prep work, with mixing everything together, and especially with the dishes! It’s a great way to do something together as a family, and as an added bonus, it teaches them a lot about cooking at an early age — they definitely won’t be leaving the house for college and living off TV dinners, that’s for sure.
