TwiceGirlie "B" Cooking with Mommy

This time, Twice Girlie "B" stayed home from the gym and she helped me cook dinner. This dinner was the same as what Twice Girlie "A" and I made. This is really a good dinner and easy to make. Just like Twice Girlie "A", Twice Girlie "B" also likes cooking, and baking..

So, just like I did last time I cooked this meal, I measured all the spices and let Twice Girlie "B" put the spices in a bag. Once all the spices were in the bag, Twice Girlie "B" mixed the spices together. And, just like last time I made this dinner, I cleaned the chicken real good as to not get sick. Getting sick from poultry is just bad all around. LOL

Any who, here is my precious Twice Girlie "B" adding spices to bag, shaking bag and placing chicken in glass cooking container:

TwiceGirlie "A" Cooking with Mommy

My twins love baking and cooking with Mommy, so when Twice Girlie "A" wanted to stay home with Mommy, she helped me bake some chicken legs. It was a lot of fun for her and me. I measured out the ingredients and had her put the spices in a plastic bag. Once all the spices were in the bag, I had her shake the bag until all the spices were mixed together.

Before the chicken was placed into the bag, I cleaned the chicken real good, I mean real good, it is no fun getting sick from unwashed poultry, am I right?

Here are some photos of my Twice Girlie helping Mommy make the chicken:
