[THEME SONG ENDS]
>> RACHEL: It’s Cooking Week, and tonight, I’m cooking a snack for myself — grilled cheese. But I need your help. As I describe what I’m doing, I need you to help me decide if it’s a KITCHEN YES...
>> RACHEL: or a KITCHEN MESS.
>> RACHEL: Here we go.
>> RACHEL: The first thing I think I’ll do to make my grilled cheese is take bread slices out of the bread bag.
>> RACHEL: Should that be my first step — Is THAT a KITCHEN YES? Or is it a KITCHEN MESS?
This first step is….. a KITCHEN MESS.
Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…
>> RACHEL: -and brush your front teeth too.
>> RACHEL: When you’re cooking, your first step should ALWAYS be washing your hands...
>> RACHEL: Okay Now that my hands are clean, I’m ready to start cooking.
>> RACHEL: I put my sandwich together and put it on the hot pan.
The bread is getting toasty and the cheese is starting to melt, I want to flip the sandwich. I think I’ll grab it with my hands and turn it over.
>> RACHEL: Is that a KITCHEN YES or a KITCHEN MESS?
>> RACHEL: Find out after you switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth…
>> RACHEL: -and keep brushing!
>> RACHEL: This is….. a KITCHEN MESS!
>> RACHEL: You should NEVER touch hot things in the kitchen with just your hands. Make sure there’s always a grownup with you, and have them help you use tongs or a spatula to flip your sandwiches.
>> RACHEL: Okay, phew! Glad I asked you guys. Ok now I can eat my sandwich.
>> RACHEL: Okay, I think I’m done now right? Would leaving now and going to play be a KITCHEN YES or a KITCHEN MESS?
Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…
>> RACHEL: -and brush all the way around each tooth.
Leaving now would be a… KITCHEN MESS. It really would be a mess to leave this mess I made in the kitchen.
>> RACHEL: The last step in cooking is cleaning up after yourself! That way, next time you want to whip something up in the kitchen, it’ll be clean and ready for you.
>> RACHEL: I’ll go clean up now. Thanks for helping me make my sandwich!
