The Unusual Chef

When I am looking for help in the kitchen, I normally get help from the last person you would ever think!
Ok so maybe he isn't so little anymore but yes Cody is the one that almost loves to help me cook!

Cody is a great chef! I keep telling him that his cooking skills will really make his wife happy one day (a long long long time from now!).

We decided that we would have homemade chicken stir fry and of course he was totally up for helping me.

First we started out with our green bell peppers and sweet onions. We just cook them up in my electric skillet with some Kikkoman - Soy Sauce 5.0 Oz and teriyaki sauce -   seriously these are the 2 items we use to add flavor to the chicken and veggies.

Normally I will cook all the chicken and veggies in the same skillet but I knew everyone was super hungry so I made so much I had to split it.

Cody is such a big help in the kitchen! The funny thing is you better watch him or you might end up with something super spicy! He loves to season when he cooks and it normally turns out super good but sometimes well I guess you have to live and learn!

The finished product was a super yummy plate of chicken, veggies, and chicken rice Knorr/Lipton Asian Sides, Chicken Fried Rice, 5.7-Ounce Packages (Pack of 12).
I figure that with Cody helping me cook we get to spend some quality time together doing something that isn't very typical for a boy his age and he is learning some valuable life skills at the same time!


  1. What a guy! I think learning to cook is such an incredible life lesson! I have kids at my work that are 17 and have no idea how to make anything. Cody is way ahead! Tell him good job!

  2. Love this Shanna! Cody can come help me any time he wants ;)

  3. Thanks! He really does love cooking! He helped me today make some chocolate cupcakes with butterfinger buttercreme icing! Yummo!
