My My baby is growing up and cooking without help!

This is my VERY big girl Hannah who just turned 8 a few weeks ago. She is beautiful, independent, and strong willed. Some would say just like her mother.......

She has recently started helping in the kitchen and today was her first time she cooked something with no help. She insisted that we use some of them items that I have been couponing for. She loves the fact that I coupon and tells people that we are saving for her braces. LOL

These are the things we grabbed out of our stockpile.

French's Worcestershire Sauce was 1.00. We used a coupon for .75 cents off. It was in the newspaper on 5/15/11

Heinz Ketchup was on sale at Dillons for 1.99. We used a .50 coupon from the newspaper put out on 5/22/11. They doubled the coupon making this huge bottles only .99 each.

Kikkoman Soy Sauce was 1.42. We used a $1 ( coupon no longer active) - Cost us .42

She made Marinated Baked Pork Chops.

3 tablespoon soy sauce
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3 teaspoon lemon juice
6 tablespoons brown sugar
6 tablespoons ketchup
6 or 7 pork chops, trimmed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a small bowl, thoroughly blend soy sauce, vegetable oil, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar, and ketchup.
Place pork chops in a medium baking dish, and spread with 1/2 the sauce.
Bake pork chops 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Turn, and spread with remaining sauce. Continue baking 30 minutes, or until internal temperature of the chops has reached 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Look for the pasta recipe coming soon. It was also a couponing dish!

Your girl should be very proud of herself - being able to cook is a fantastic skill to have. I've had flatmates in my time (20+ years of age!) who think microwaving a can of creamed corn is a gourmet meal!
