I think this ranks up there with first step, first word and first kiss, well, I've still got ten or twenty years before she starts thinking about boys =)

So, I walked her through a simple mac and cheese. She boiled some veggies with pasta. "I know what al dente is, dad!" she sighed. She melted butter, made a roux. She pulled it off the heat and stirred in the milk, heated it 'til it thickened. Maybe not enough, it was a bit thin, but she'll live and learn. She stirred in the cheese and a bit of mustard and miso, stated it, added a bit more salt. And Done!

I was so proud. If I could find her baby book, this would definitely be in there.
Proud papa, good for her! I wonder if you could find her a young people's cookbook as alittle surprise/reward, to acknowledge her specialness, and that you're accepting her growing/ and growing up?

Adorable pics. But don't tell her you told us; she'll be
"Ohhh, daaadddy".

My daughter loved having her own cookbook when she was a kid. She never really developed an interest in cooking until she hit her 20s but now she loves it. We bought our granddaughter Hannah a Disney (can't remember the name, but we bought it at Lowe's home improvement store) cookbook (she loves Disney Princesses).

And then she will secretly brag to all her friends because her dad was so proud of her accomplishment!
