Well, it's Wednesday and that's Braiden's night to help Grandma cook supper! Tonight we made Paula's Chicken Nuggets,french fries, and a salad. He had a ball tossing the chicken in the flour. Made a wonderful, awful mess! He beat the egg pretty well and rolled those nuggets in the bread crumbs. The most amazing thing was, for a 6 year old to peel 6 potatoes and not leave a trace of peel on them...and not cut himself with the peeler! He was so proud of himself! Then it was out to play with Grandpa in the back yard while Grandma deep fried all the goodies! He decided to rename them "B-Nuggets"! So, So good, no matter what they are called!
