Cooking with Kids and Food Revolution Day #FRD2013

Ella (5) loves Masterchef and Come Dine With Me. I don’t know how she came to find this out because we don’t watch either of the shows but one day I was looking at the tv guide and she got excited when she saw that Masterchef was on; she asked if she could watch it and I couldn’t refuse after seeing that level of excitement!

As well as her new found love of cooking programmes, she’s also very keen to help cook dinner every night and with that in mind I asked if she wanted us to do our own version of Come Dine With Me at home.
She beamed from ear to ear and got very excited at the thought of it ๐Ÿ™‚

After reading about Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day, I figured what better day to get the kids cooking than Friday May 17th!

Aiden, Kaycee and Ella are each going to cook a dish for a 3 course family dinner for Friday night and we’ll be sharing the recipes and photos from the day on the blog.

As Aiden and I are both doing Slimming World, the recipes have to be healthy and low in fat so I used the recipe finder on the Slimming World website and here’s our menu for our 3 course family dinner ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll be back over the weekend with photos, recipes and of course, the all important winner results!
