Plans & Plates: MasterChef Jr Bake Off in the Doria House & Week 47

WHAT AN EXCITING WEEK!  Thanksgiving week!!!  Truth be told, I was feeling crazy weighed down with my schedule.  I had 8 chapters to read for school, cheer meetings, my hubby needed a ham for his work's dinner, and my mother in law tasked us with bringing desserts.  We have been watching non-stop Hell's Kitchen and MasterChef, so it felt all too appropriate to turn our long tasks into something fun!  Each kid chose a dessert flavor and then a recipe.  Isabel and I went out for a quick shopping trip for all of the ingredients, and then Wednesday started the competition.  All the kids had to be in charge of their own dessert (yes, even 5-year-old Hannah).  I have to say that I am pretty impressed by this kids.  I might be a little bias though.

I forgot to snap a picture afterward.  It did last that long on the plates either!!!  Isabel has begged for a couple nights since for leftovers of this one too!  I'd say that's a huge win in my book especially with the child who is quirky with her food textures.
