  • (Hannah tickling Henry) (Henry laughing)

  • - Go pick your food!

  • - [all Shouting] Pizza! Pizza!

  • - [Henry] Mama!

  • - [Hannah] Henry! (Hannah and Henry giggle)

  • For an entire week, (Hannah and Henry giggle)

  • I'm gonna let Henry (Hannah and Henry giggle)

  • choose our family's dinners. ( Hannah and Henry giggle)

  • Mushroom!

  • - [Hannah] Boo! (Henry Giggles)

  • - [Jackson] No!

  • Oh! Ho! Ho! (Hannah giggles)

  • It looks fantastic!

  • Oooh! (Hannah giggles)

  • - Who's that kid?

  • Hi, I'm Hannah, I'm the world's OK-est Mom,

  • and I have a very disorganized closet...

  • Hi, I'm Hannah, I'm the world's OK-est mom,

  • and you've seen me have a lot of fun with my two older boys,

  • they've gotten to choose my hair color,

  • they've meal planned-- - [Henry] Mama!

  • - [Hannah] Mama, yes...

  • they've meal planned our weeks, and we've had a blast,

  • but you know what?

  • It's time for Henry to join in.

  • So for an entire week,

  • I'm gonna let Henry choose our families dinners,

  • what could possibly-- (Henry speaks gibberish)

  • - [Henry] Mama! (Hannah laughs)

  • - [Hannah] Since Henry is only one year old,

  • he isn't the most verbal, he doesn't say many words,

  • so I have a few techniques that I'm going to try

  • to get some non-verbal choices from him.

  • I don't know what to expect for this week

  • because we're kind of playing it by ear,

  • we're gonna figure it out as we go,

  • and I'm just nervous that he's going to pick

  • some sort of combination for dinner that I can't pull off.

  • Okay, so we're each going to pick a food,

  • we're going to place them in the center of the room,

  • and whoever he walks to, (Henry starts crying)

  • that's the food we're gonna have for dinner.

  • So what is your food Wyatt? - Ribs.

  • - Mine is pizza. - What's yours?

  • Pizza! Matt what's yours?

  • - Chinese.

  • Chinese food?

  • Mine is salmon and salad.

  • Are we ready?

  • Here we go, get in the center, baby.

  • (all calling Henry's name) - [Matt} I Want Chinese Food,

  • come on. - [Hannah] Henry,

  • you love your mom!

  • - Want dada's phone?

  • - Come on Henry. - You guys do not,

  • (inaudible) - [Hannah] Uuuh! interference,

  • Ooooh!

  • Got it. (Hannah and Wyatt giggle)

  • Henry ended up choosing Wyatt. (Hannah giggles)

  • - [Matt] I actually love ribs, so--

  • - [Hannah] Well, you know, who's making them?

  • (Matt laughs, Wyatt cheers) - [Wyatt] Yes! Yes! Yes!

  • [Hannah] Now, I've seen in past videos,

  • you've left some comments saying

  • that it looks like I do all the cooking,

  • and so that's stuck with me, I've thought about it

  • and decided to do something differently this day,

  • let me know when they're done.

  • The ribs were great, I will give that to Matt,

  • he did a good job.

  • These ribs aren't exactly as off the bone as we usually do,

  • but Henry, are you happy with your dinner choice?

  • (Henry speaks gibberish)

  • That was his first rib ever,

  • and he just got to chow down and he was on cloud nine.

  • Wyatt are you happy? - [Wyatt] Mmmh!

  • Wow! For someone who was so pro pizza,

  • - [Jackson] well, pizza maybe better than this.

  • - I will never say no to ribs.

  • Henry made a good choice.

  • Day two,

  • I decided to get a more literal selection from Henry.

  • I'm going to hold Henry infront of the fridge

  • and whatever he picks is the main ingredient

  • for the dish that I have to cook tonight.

  • Henry, hey, what are you gonna pick?

  • Oh, (Hannah giggles) - [Jackson] No!

  • No!

  • - [Hannah] Feta!

  • He pulled out feta cheese,

  • which was much to Jackson's disappointment.

  • Typically with feta cheese,

  • I just use it as a sprinkling on a salad,

  • but I have seen this Tik TOK pasta going around for ages,

  • let's do it.

  • Gettin the water boiling,

  • in a shallow baking dish, I had cherry tomatoes, Feta,

  • a bunch of seasonings and olive oil,

  • let's pop this in the oven,

  • looks delish.

  • Wooh!

  • Yum! All right let's get this on our pasta.

  • Henry loves pasta, he is a pasta theme.

  • Is it yum, yum?

  • Everyone enjoyed it, it was fine.

  • - The cheese doesn't have that much flavor in it.

  • - [Hannah] Really? - Yeah, not that much.

  • - You should've done tomato sauce.

  • - I didn't know, I raised a family of food critics.

  • (inaudible)

  • (Henry speaks gibberish)

  • - It's pretty good,

  • it is a little bland.

  • I shouldn't have done spaghetti,

  • it's not the right pasta for that type of sauce.

  • I also would do more feta on moving forward

  • and maybe I should have salted it

  • on top of the rest of my seasonings.

  • Say night, night, (Henry speaks gibberish)

  • goodnight, night,

  • blow kiss,

  • Yay!

  • - Who's that kid?

  • - Day three,

  • I decided to do something a little more toy based.

  • Toy food, I've chosen five--

  • - Pizza! - as options.

  • Waffle, - Mushroom!

  • Pizza,

  • - Mushroom. - Mushrooms,

  • chicken

  • and tomato.

  • It's almost like I paid him to do it,

  • I feel like he just sends to my vibes

  • and he knew what I wanted him to choose

  • to just really drive the kids crazy.

  • - Pick! (Henry speaks gibberish)

  • - [Hannah] Mushrooms!

  • Wooh!

  • Mushrooms are a hot topic in our house,

  • they were previously Jackson

  • and Wyatt's least favorite food of all time,

  • like the thought, the smell, the look, the sound

  • of the word mushrooms made them gag until I hid them

  • in burgers one day to try to get them used to the taste,

  • and they decided they love them.

  • We're gonna get our favorite local pioneer town restaurant,

  • they make the best mushroom tacos I've ever had in my life,

  • Red Dog Saloon is the best restaurant

  • I've had in a very long time, I'm so excited.

  • And I really think the kids will be stoked,

  • cause the mushroom tacos are delicious

  • and I don't have to cook tonight.

  • These mushroom tacos are the best tacos,

  • they're soft tacos and they're folded over.

  • - [Jackson And Wyatt] Yeah! - [Wyatt] We're ready.

  • - Mmh!

  • Mushroom goodness.

  • Now I know I've done some vegan content recently

  • and I am still sticking with trying

  • to choose more plant-based meals,

  • so these mushroom tacos, that are one of my favorite foods,

  • also just happen to be vegan.

  • Wyatt cleaned his plate, Jackson cleaned his plate,

  • mushroom power!

  • Henry, are you ready to eat your taco?

  • It's got your... oops!

  • It's got your tomato,

  • Yum!

  • (inaudible)

  • - So good.

  • - Matt and I had just had a conversation,

  • we were talking about how his contribution to every video

  • is taking a bite and chewing and saying, mmh!

  • - So good.

  • - Now, in honor of Matt's contribution to this series,

  • let's just have a quick montage.

  • - It's good, delicious, it's really good,

  • that's amazing, it's really good, so excited,

  • it's really good, oh! Gourmet.

  • - One day we'll do an episode,

  • all about Matt saying different words.

  • Day four, we decided to go all out

  • and we took all of Henry's food toys

  • and put them inside his play enclosure,

  • and he had his pick of so many food options.

  • (all shouting pizza)

  • - Jackson finally got his pizza,

  • We can all rest easy.

  • They are really good at making the homemade pizza dough,

  • I have my chef number one,

  • let me see you, you look great.

  • For christmas, their grandmother, Gigi,

  • got them chef hats and aprons so that they can feel official

  • while they helped me in the kitchen.

  • You excited? All right, let's do this.

  • They can mix the dough, they can measure the ingredients,

  • they can do all of it.

  • Come on, chef, you got this,

  • - Do I taste this? don't no, don't taste it.

  • (Hannah giggles) That's just raw flour,

  • that's what your apron is for, wipe it on your apron.

  • Wow!

  • Roll your sleeves up dude,

  • I don't want sweater in my...

  • Cooking with kids is not easier,

  • you think that having help in the kitchen makes it easier,

  • but they're actually

  • at the age where it's still a little stressful for me,

  • but I try so hard to take a step back, let them live,

  • let them make the mess, let them experiment...

  • We have a chef on our hands, kneading dough,

  • we're gonna oil this up and cover it, let it rise,

  • okay.

  • We are rolling out the dough, here Wyatt,

  • here's your piece.

  • Here's the thing with pizza,

  • I've put it on the table, it disappears,

  • I literally put it on the table,

  • turn around to grab my camera turned back

  • and everyone has finished.

  • They inhale this pizza,

  • Henry himself is a pizza crust themed,

  • so having his very own slice was a very big deal to him,

  • and we will definitely be making this more.

  • Day five, I decided to take things outside

  • and get a little bit more distance for Henry's choice.

  • Hey guys, you want to come show what you picked?

  • Oh gosh! I need something to prop this up.

  • Okay, I picked asparagus.

  • - I picked doughnut.

  • - I picked potato.

  • - I picked cheese.

  • - Okay, Ready? Let's go guys.

  • (all calling Henry's name) (all cheering Henry)

  • - He picked a donut,

  • What is it with Wyatt

  • and his gravitational pull towards Henry?

  • He won again!

  • How am I going to cook and dinner with a donut?

  • Henry, where are you sad? (Henry cries)

  • - He want's to walk. - I'm sad.

  • - He want's to walk around.

  • - Now I have to make donut dinner,

  • I feel like I'm on Chopped right now,

  • or like this is my mystery basket,

  • so I'm going to make doughnut bread pudding

  • and hopefully stale up these donuts a little bit more...

  • In this bowl we got a little egg, evaporated milk,

  • cinnamon nutmeg...

  • So we're going to pour this on top,

  • what a weird dinner,
