Roasted Potatoes and Knife Skills

Audrey has been in the kitchen with me since she was 22 months old. She started with salads and the bread machine and has worked up to this:

Assorted new potatoes.

During our recent trip to Devil's Den Audrey decided she was big enough to cut the potatoes with a sharp knife. It is just a small steak knife but she was able to cut the potatoes well. I sliced them in half and had her cut them in quarters from there.

When Audrey started cutting Maurene jumped up and decided she needed to cut as well. I found her a sharp butter knife and let her try. It was not as easy for her but she made a go of it.

After all of the potatoes were cut the girls tossed them in olive oil and salt. We roasted them and enjoyed them with chicken grilled by daddy!

Sometimes helping is as simple and as enjoyable as chopping vegetables.
