|Instructables: Nutella Brownies|
|Gimme Some Oven: No Bake Energy Bites|
Last year the Dolen household came up with Man Training. Man Training is where the Dolen boys learn how to do things that will (hopefully) help them become good men for example: laundry, yard maintenance, cooking, cleaning, money management, etc. The month of January has been all about learning how to cook. Micah had two meals that he could make when he left home, crock-pot chicken & taco salad. Two meals may not sound like a lot but I am grateful that he has meals he can make. I have heard many a wife say that her husband is completely unable to make anything. Not acceptable here. While we have pretty traditional roles in our home, we are still a team. If I’m not here he needs to have the ability to feed our kids. Ash is only 5 so he’s not ready to master the cooking range, but Gray is almost 11 and is up for the challenge. So far Gray has mastered macaroni & cheese, ramen noodles, cupcakes from a box, and nachos. Last week he got inspired and tried some recipes I had pinned on Pinterest. He made Nutella Brownies from Instructables and No Bake Energy Bites from Gimme Some Oven. I would highly recommend them both! Super easy for kiddos (or even adults) with minimal ingredients and very yummy.
