Today Mama and Jesse Yong made our first batch of cookies together. Peanut butter cookies, to boot! Jesse Yong was very excited to put each one of the ingredients together in a big bowl, one at a time, and then use a blender on the whole concoction. There's something innately satisfying about pulverising things when the occasion calls for it.
As the pictures show, he took his job very seriously, wanting to make sure each part of the process was done properly.
The whole experience was very exciting for him, although slightly trying on his patience, as we had to let the batter "chill" in the fridge for 2 hours. A bit difficult to understand/translate that concept... And waiting for the delectible comestibles to cook - and worse yet, cool - was another small hardship, but we got to watch them bake (oven lights were a wonderful invention), so that helped.
Judging by his expression, it was worth it!
