Kids in the Kitchen - Link up 50 - Oven fries and new skills for kids cooking

I’ve joined forces with my good friend Carrie @YoungLivingOilLady
to bring you this family friendly recipe link up. It is our desire to encourage
families to cook and eat together. Meals cooked at home are healthier, and time
spent together in the kitchen is good for families!

We use Cooking 101 as part of our family homeschool. I’m teaching the boys to
put together healthy family meals, life skills, and budgeting, as well as teaching them tips for cooking in the kitchen. We encourage real food vs. processed food. Let’s bring the family, back to the table!

This week: 

The boys got a lesson in "kitchen safety" from daddy. Captain daddy is a professional fishing guide and is great with a knife. Although they have heard me tell them a thousand times to be careful and that "all knives can cut you" - it was great for them to spend time with dad and learn from him. 

The boys use regular table knives instead of the sharper ones - but they cut potatoes just fine! Walker carefully sliced up oven fries - just the way daddy showed him. Spencer got to help too and then they spread them on a tray, drizzled them with olive oil and put them in the oven to cook at 400 for 30 minutes - or until just browned. 

Healthier than fried with the same great home fry taste! 

Join us by linking up your favorite family recipes! Grab a button from below, on my side bar, or use a text link back to Adventurez. Please visit another participant or more to help encourage each other. I’ll be visiting and Pinning away on our Kids in the Kitchen Pinterest board here. It’s a wonderful resource for finding yummy recipes the whole family will love. Enjoy your time in the kitchen this week!
