Baking with Karter

Before Karter and I leave tomorrow, we have several things to get done. Two top things on that list are 1) use up our old bananas and 2) make sure daddy has food to eat while we are gone. To kill two birds with one stone, Karter and I decided to bake some banana chocolate chip muffins together yesterday. He loves to sit on the stool and watch the mixer spin.

He was a very trusty assistant and made sure I was getting the measurements correctly.

He saw me use the spoons to measure something into the bowl, so he was convinced they must have something good on them. Sorry buddy, I was just measuring out salt.

He was very good at helping me get the paper cups out, but got a little mad when we actually had to put them in the muffin tin!

While the muffins were baking, I gave Karter the spatula (that only had mashed up bananas on it) to lick, being the giver that he is he wanted to share with Rascal. Don't worry Grandma...I took it away from him after Rascal licked it.

His favorite part was snacking on chocolate chips while the muffins baked. Being a Gray man he lacks patience and couldn't wait for them to come out of the oven!

He couldn't get enough of them. He must of gotten his love for chocolate from his daddy, definitely not me!

Karter was a very good helper in the kitchen, except for when it was time to clean up, he conveniently found other things to play with by then...that trait, he probaby got from me!
