The ability to cook, and enjoy doing it, most days. There are days it would be nice to get take out, but I live in an area where there is no delivery. But you get my meaning. I am a self taught cook. I'm not bragging, but I am. It's something I have worked very hard to accomplish and to do well for not only me but my family. I've had some whoopers too, and I'll be the first to admit to that! Much like my fried zucchini... And not to mention various other cooking catastrophes, oh the horrors, and I still set off my smoke alarm from time to time. But I do enjoy cooking and learning to make new things and expanding our palates. Sometimes it's good and other times I throw the recipe in the trash. I want my kiddos to enjoy eating and enjoy eating foods they have never tasted before. I get bored cooking all the same things and that is why I am always looking to try new things, and have found some wonderful things on blogs that I follow, and stop by and visit from time to time. Not just cooking, but cooking from scratch, which seems to be a lost art, along with knowing what is IN the foods we eat and where and how it's grown and raised. I think people are so disconnected from their food. Kinda scary actually to eat mystery meat, eewww, like fast food... I'll leave it at that!
Have a great day all!
