    cooking, kids
    For most of the past week Lily has been trying to persuade us to have a cooking competition. Her initial idea involved kids cooking unassisted, but after talking through ways I saw this going poorly she decided she was ok with teams. This morning she said it was time, and declared it would be Lily + Jeff vs Anna + Julia.

    Unfortunately, Anna was only interested in being a judge. After extended discussion Lily determined that we would be a team and Julia would compete as an individual. Luckily for Lily, when Julia woke up she was up for participating.

    Lily started by making a list of the allowed ingredients:

    Since we only have one non-vegan oven we weren't going to have things ready at the same time, and Julia wanted to eat hers for breakfast anyway; we decided she'd have the oven first. She was enough faster that she was done with the oven before Anna and I were even close to ready to put ours in.

    Julia made chocolate popovers:

    Lily and I made a sponge cake with chocolate buttercream frosting:

    The cake was a clear judge's favorite:

    Lily: does it win?

    Anna: yes!

    Light Switch

    When I got my loft bed it was just so annoying every morning to have to get out of bed, climb down the ladder, turn the light on, and climb back up, just so I could see stuff. I decided to make a string for my light switch because I really wanted to be abl…
