according to my mom when I was a baby they provided me with my very own kitchen cupboard.
I could pull out all the funky pastel colored tupperware and enamel beige & orange flowered pots and pans that my hearts desired...
sorry, just having a 70ies flashback.
I believe there is a picture of me with an olive green plastic colander on my head somewhere in one of the aqua blue tie-dyed photo-albums...
Unfortunately for lulu we can't afford the kitchen cupboard real-estate.
I need every last nook and cranny of my kitchen.
There is never enough storage space in these old toronto houses.
and that's after a complete overhaul and kitchen reno.
Besides if I let lulu go into the pots & pans cupboard she liable to crush a leg or something.
I mean All Clad saute pans are freakin heavy!
but I feel bad. What I had, my daughter should have.
I came up with a solution.
Mini pots and pans from Ikea.
they were inexpensive, and she loves them.
when I'm cooking and pulling out the "big" pots and pans,
she gets her pots and pans.
just like mommy.
it's so cute to watch her shake the pan around, is she thinking about slowly simmering a tasty reduction?
lightly sauteing delicious spring vegetables?
I think she just enjoys looking at her reflection and banging them together as loud and frantically as she can,
that is until I pick her up and let her hold the wooden spoon that I'm using to make dinner!
