Wednesday Night: Boys in My Kitchen

 For the past two Wednesday nights, our 12 year old has invited classmates over - for a massive water gun and balloon fight, followed by pizza making. I sneaked into the kitchen as the boys were working on their meals to shoot some of the action.

The boys figure out on their own how to divvy up the tasks. One boy is the sauce spreader, another is in charge of the cheese and still others in charge of adding spices and chopping up the bacon they cook.

One of the best things in the world to be is a boy; 
it requires no experience, but needs some practice to be a good one. 


  1. Wednesday night is pizza making night in our house, too (although we just switched to Fridays!).It is an opportunity for all the kids to get creative, invite friends over and learn how to cook! It is fascinating that they are satisfied eating so much less pizza when they make it themselves. Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks, Alma. You are right - they eat less when they make it themselves!
