Colin is always so much more excited about helping me in the kitchen. Even on days I don’t ask for help, he offers. It’s so nice to see Colin enjoy cooking and, even better, spending time with me!
I’ve been making these (amazing!) slow cooker beef tips about once every other week. We always have enough for a second meal, though. So a few weeks ago, I started making the rice base for the meal. Colin poked his head in the kitchen and asked to help. Who am I to say no?!
He measured out the rice, watched the water come to a boil and poured the rice in.
After he was ‘done’ with the rice, Colin helped me warm the beef tips by microwaving them.
Colin is a fantastic helper!
What’s your favorite leftover meal?
