Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen?

How in the world am I getting dinner on the table each night? I do all the prep work in the wee hours of the morning and... The girls "cook" dinner themselves using play-doh when we get home in the afternoon. Their favorite things to make are noodles, crackers, and dumplings {courtesy of an episode of Ni Hao, Kai Lan where Yeh-Yeh makes dumplings}. The play-doh sure can be messy if its starting to crumble, but it gives me a good thirty minutes to work on dinner without interruption which is a huge help.

The girls also play with homemade play-doh at school, so we may try that recipe when our current supply of the "real stuff" starts to dry out.
