a storyteller's blog about finding beauty in the ordinary

Sometimes, things happen that really make you stand back in awe. Chris and I have been working in Aidan's room like 2 small whirlwinds. (Just between you and me and the whole world, I will be fine if I never have to mud and tape a room again) One of those monumental days was one that was following another one of those different kind of days where I spent the whole time in that blasted room. The day was inching close to dinner time and I was mudding and taping in a frustrated tangle. So I called for backup. Nevermind that the backup wasn't quite 5 feet tall and able to wield a knife yet. "I need you two to make dinner. But first, you have to figure out what to make, and then go get the ingredients." Those two little chefs, inspired by watching the Iron Chef while I was working, put their heads together and created a masterpiece. The appetizer was Aidan's own recipe of chipotle chicken over cream cheese on a gluten free almond cracker.
Oh yes, that was scrumptious.
Dinner was two cheese and two bean enchiladas with a handmade sauce. They were a perfect team as Aidan did the cooking and Chloe put everything together and arranged it all.
