Oh, she already did! Her cousin Jamison helped her peel and cut up zucchini and they have a big dehydrator full of zucchini simmered in Black Cherry koolaid. (grin)

We went to Michigan's Adventure today, tomorrow I take them all back to their respective homes and then go help Sherry finish up a couple of small repair projects.

I'll have get together pictures soon!

Annie (who still won't take a backseat to the Monkey Princess because Her Highness does not have internet connection and can only use the computer at her grandmother's house! Plus, she has to be in bed by 10 pm, LOL)

Zucchini simmered in black cherry koolaid and then dried? Sounds interesting....do you then eat the zuke chips or make jewelry with them? LOL - ;o) Are they like a sweet pickle or a fruit leather snack? Or was this a mad scientist Monkey Princess experiment?

And when is the local fair? And what will you enter this year?

We have all known you since you were born. Just seems right that you should have your own membership.

Looking forward to your posts Makayla.

Very happy to see you here!

By the way, where does the name Monkey Princess come from? At first I thought you were the only one, but then I saw that you put numbers after the name, which made me think that there might be another one.

Learning to cook from grandmothers is the best - mine was very helpful, and I have fond memories of cooking with her. I look forward to seeing pics of what you are making.

Lars, she is the "Monkey Princess" because when she was small she'd climb all over me. I asked her if she thought she was a monkey and she said "Yes, and you are my tree". Since she was the only girl child in the family at that point, everyone referred to her as "The Princess". So, she became "Monkey Princess" and it stuck. Why is she "101"? I sure don't know, I think she's used to having numbers with all of her passwords, etc.

Teresa, the zucchini comes out of the dehydrator much like gummy worms. No one that has eaten it has yet identified it as zucchini and the kids all love the stuff. The fair is already gone and she got several blue ribbons with a couple of seconds and thirds, including one third for a picture she had drawn. We had a lot of company the week before Fair, so we didn't have the time to spend that we usually do. She made bagels and donuts and apple cinnamon syrup, brother made fudge and cookies, so we were still well represented, although no Grand Champions this year.

She's back home now, but she'll be back. She was "teaching" her cousin Jamison to cook during this last visit. (grin) She deserved her break with Grandma, her Mom had another seizure last week and she and her brother were the only ones home. Makayla got her brother outside, kept him calm, called the ambulance, gave them directions and kept her Mom from hurting herself by lying her on the floor so she didn't fall. She did well, stayed calm and I'm proud of her.

And now that's over with, we can get back to cooking, she's going to help me make salsa next week, if enough tomatoes ripen. I'm sure she'll post then, she's excited to have her own "screen name".

Welcome to CF, MP!!! I enjoyed reading your posts under your grandma's ID a few months ago. Now she's posting under yours. I'm so confused!

Yeah, anyone that's been here a while already "knows" you so that makes it all the more fun to welcome in a new generation. Has anyone else done that?

Hi Monkey Princess,

I'm another member who's delighted to welcome you. Did you know that your Oma is one of our favorite members? She often posts stories about family events (like weddings and holidays) and shows us pictures of the yummy food and the wonderful people, including you and your brother and cousins. That's why we all feel as though we know you. Even if we've never met you in person, we've seen photos and heard stories about you ever since you were babies.

Congratulations on winning all those ribbons at the fair. Soooooo ... what's your next cooking project?

Sue

Hello Monkey Princess! I rarely come to the Cooking Forum anymore but I've met your Grandmother before. You're a lucky young lady to have such a wonderful Grandmother and I'm lucky to have met her. Welcome Makayla!
