Pretend Cooking with Real Food

So we have been doing pretend cooking for a long time now, but when I saw this post at Play Create Explore, I knew we had to bring it up a notch and try it out! We saved up our expired food and made some wonderful foods! Soon after we raided Emmi's kitchen for expired food and Great Papa's kitchen and we had a feast with cousins!!

The set up: 
Step 1: Must have vinyl tablecloth (makes clean up a breeze) + hose!!

Step 2: Muffin tin - parsley, lawrys salt, pepper corn (with mortar and pestle) brown sugar, bread crumbs, hard marshmallow, cocoa powder, used coffee grounds, flour, corn starch, expired milk, slimy carrots, 

A pinch of parsley (hmm smells like "sketti" - Monkey 1)

Step 3: Add food coloring

A pinch of coffee grounds (smells like Emmi's house - LOL)

MMM... Good!! Would you like to try some??
