I was destined for greatness.

I once thought I was destined for culinary greatness. Poached pears. Roquefort pear salad. Pear tarts. You know, something gorgeous you might see in a gourmet magazine. 

Unfortunately, fate has led me to this play kitchen where I sit in a pot. That in itself isn't so bad – I wouldn't mind taking part in pretend gourmet dishes. Unfortunately, the mini chef in this house is a toddler with a very limited view of the culinary arts. I've been relegated to being added to everything from tomato soup to macaroni and cheese to beans and rice. 

I ask you, do pears belong with any of those dishes? I didn't think so.


  1. I don't know, Mac and Cheese can withstand almost anything. Even pears, I think!

  2. My 2-year-old just might agree with that when she's cooking up some new creation in her play kitchen! :)

  3. This is such a clever blog!! Since I babysit my granddaughter I have toys all over the place -- now I'll be looking at them through different eyes (and listening closely to what they say!!)

    Found you in Etsy forums and following!!

  4. Thanks for following me! I'm so glad you are enjoying this! :)
