Kids in the Kitchen

{So sorry for the awful phone pics of my tv on this post, but I needed visuals!}

This is a story of being in the right place at the right time.  Towards the end of the summer we went to an event at our public library.  You were supposed to register for it, I didn't know that so didn't...thankfully they fit us in.  It was about healthy eating, and the kids loved the games and demos and making their own healthy treats.

At the end of the event we went up to thank the presenter and Jack mentioned that he liked watching her on tv.  She asked if he liked to cook and of course he answered yes!  Turns out that she was about to start taping the newest Kids in the Kitchen segments for our local public broadcasting station and a kid Jack's age had backed out.

I told you...right place at the right time...and of course, he was all in!  So much so, that he got home and quickly emailed everyone in his address book "I'm going to be on TV!"  And then his awesome Dad drove him home in the middle of this trip to do the taping.  There was no way he was going to miss this cool opportunity!

{I promise that he had a blast despite his serious look here.}

Starting next week you can catch Jack's segment between the kids programs on the weekdays.  The recipe (and a still photo of Jack in the studio) can be found here.  We are thankful to Darlyne for including Jack and I can't wait to see his segment in between our favorite afternoon shows!

What a wonderful opportunity. Hopefully she will ask him again.
Jack made my favorite sandwich. Well, actually mine has turkey in it too and is called a Monte Cristo.
YUM !!!!
