My kids love to watch The Food Network. They enjoy trying out new recipes. Many times we've pulled an Alton Brown, Rachel Ray, or Paula Deen recipe off Foodnetwork.com and worked together to make it. Other times, however, my kids decide to come up with interesting concoctions on their own. Today my 12 year old son made donuts. At least that's what he said they were. In the process, he managed to melt my slotted spoon.
I thought you said the oil was 300 degrees?
It was! I think. I'm pretty sure. Wait, did you say three-hundred?
I wish I had taken a picture of my kitchen before I helped him clean up. It looked something like this.
After that my 3 year old broke a picture frame. How, you ask? He scaled the wall, Spiderman style, and knocked the frame off the wall.
A little later in the day, my 6 year old innocently closed the back storm door and a pane of glass fell out.
Such is a day in the life of me.
Mmmm appetizing, no? Light, fluffy buttermilk donuts with a dusting of cinnamon and sugar. Or something like that.
My poor slotted spoon
