    Michelle Obama Is Launching A Cooking Show On Netflix And I, For One, Can't Wait To Watch

    Just because I'm not a child and I don't have kids doesn't mean I won't be watching.

    Former first lady Michelle Obama has clearly been busy since she left the White House. She released a memoir and has consistently left us in awe of her fashion style.

    But she's not slowing down any time soon. Michelle announced today that she has a new Netflix children's show called Waffles + Mochi!!

    I’m beyond thrilled to share that on March 16, I’ll be launching a new show on @Netflix called Waffles + Mochi! I'm excited for families and children everywhere to join us on our adventures as we discover, cook, and eat delicious food from all over the world.

    In the series, preschoolers will get to tag along as adorable puppets Waffles and Mochi go on culinary adventures around the world.
