My Little Chef

Seven-year-old Christian aspires to be a chef and talks often about owning his own ice cream shop when he grows up. He promises that his dad and I will get free ice cream when we visit Christian's Scoops. Always quick to tease, Joe asked him, "Will we still get a free scoop even if you aren't there?" Christian assured him that we would, but Joe pressed, "Well, how do you know we'll still get ice cream? Will your employees know us, or will we need to tell them who we are?"

Exasperated, Christian responded with an eye roll: "Of course, they will. It will be Mary and Emma!"

Christian is always eager to join me in the kitchen, so I thought he was long overdue for an apron. Now a canvas apron in his favorite color bears a logo for the ice cream shop of his dreams.

Tomorrow, I'll share two of Christian's favorite recipes that demonstrate that it's good to be sloppy on the rocky road to becoming a chef!

Oh, how adorble! I love Christian's Scoops, and when he is big and owns that shop, I want to be sure to come by and buy ice cream from him. Please tell Christian he already has a paying customer, Melissa! ;-)

this brings back memories of my white head son who is now 30. He too loved to cook and he had an apron with his name that he would use. He is the cook of his family of 4 but now he is into grilling. I don't think your son will ever lose the desire for cooking either! Great for whowever becomes his wife huh?

Hello Christian, My son Robin who is a cook sends you greetings and he thinks you make very beautiful ice cream. When he will come over to your country when you have your own ice cream shop he will come and taste them. Meaby later when you will be chefs you will meet somewhere for a culinary feast. Keep on going, my man...
Love to your kind and beautiful mommy
