Best Recognition

>> Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Because I love to cook and experiment, and love to eat nonetheless, I felt that it would be good to get my children interested in all things that happened in our kitchen. Of course, part of the plan was to get them interested in cooking or helping out so they would learn to eat and be exposed to different kinds of flavors and types of food.

My children are picky eaters, especially my youngest who will take so long to finish a meal. He picks at his food, segregating the bits and pieces he won't eat and he likes to spit out anything that feels to him like soft, squishy meat fat. They both may like a dish one day and want to eat it all the time, and the next time you serve it they will snub the dish altogether. It is enough to send someone with little or no patience a little bit crazy. Looking at them, you would think that the mother eats everything! LOL!

So here I am with my plan to cook for them a different international flavored meal each week. Saturday lunch is the scheduled International Feast Day at home. I like it because, it gives me a chance to experiment and try out some recipes I've been wanting to learn and at the same time it helps the children develop a palate for something new or out of the ordinary. But best of all, is that kids, when involved in a task, tend to be more excited to try something new because they were a part of it.

I would want to raise my boys having, if not a skilled hand in the kitchen then at least the ability to make the most basic dishes. Although I have no fancy culinary degree, it is enough for me to know that my family enjoys eating what I cook and my kids coming up to me and telling me "You're the Top Chef Mom!" is the best recognition any mother would feel.

About This Blog

All about me, my musings, ramblings, fancies, quirks and dreams; the blessings in my life - the kids and their growing years; and my love for digital scrapbooking/design and graphic arts; and my eternal quest to keep learning something new each day and give back in my little way.

This blog used to be 3 blogs which I decided to merge together, my scrapping blog (Pandoras Box of Thought), the blog about my kids (Beyond the Four Walls) and my cooking/recipe blog (Cooking Mama) - all the old posts are still up but I've decided to just post everything in the future in one forum, with all the things I'm doing, I'd like to keep everything in one neat container :)
