Very adorable!

My mom has some old "menus" I wrote up when I was about that age, too. I wanted to own a diner. IIRC, I charged $5.00 for orange juice, but a hamburger was 50 cents. It must have been fresh, hand squeezed orange juice from oranges grown organically by angels or something, lol!

I wonder how many of us here played "food" or "kitchen" when we were kids, instead of "house" and "policeman"?

Too funny Amy. I bet a lot of us. We didn't have a lot of money when I was growing up. Comfortable, but not a lot extra. I was sooooo jealous of the girls that had an easy bake oven. Those little cake mixes were so cool. I saw a pristine one at an antique shop in Florida in February. Almost bought it!! Pamilyn

I always coveted (and I mean coveted) a Little Tikes kitchen when I was a kid. I was at Target yesterday, and they had these awesome wooden kitchen pieces - sink, fridge, stove, microwave. $80 a piece! I tried to figure out how I could find the money for some of it for Ellie, but alas, it was not to be. Plus, she doesn't really play kitchen yet. And she has a plastic kitchen a friend sent her, so she doesn't even NEED the beautiful wooden stuff. Oh well. I'll have to indulge my childhood fantasies some other way, right?

I must say that Ellie does have an extensive collection of plastic food, though. She likes the pizza and the pie the best. Smart kid, huh?
