I tried to help my children learn their fractions by teaching them measurements in cooking and allowing them to cook with me.

One Sunday morning our oldest son, who had always read the recipes in the children's section of the newspaper where we lived, decided to make french toast. (A recipe he had found in the paper and had saved for a special occasion, without letting anyone know!)
The recipe called for a 1/4 teaspoon of salt and he put in a 1/4 cup of salt. He awoke everyone to tell us he had prepared breakfast for all of us.
Number one-we were shocked he had used the stove without permission and number two-I had him get the recipe and we went over it for him to understand why he had used toooo much salt. So needless to say it was a great morning talk about using the stove without a parent around. Plus, never use salt in french toast!

I am glad that the extra salt was the worst of his experience.  But I think it was sweet that he wanted to surprise everyone with french toast.

The funny thing about "salty" French toast is......I DO salt my French toast and love it!!  I eat it with butter and salt.  Gross, I know but that's the way I've always eaten French toast!!
