Culinary Kids


The Summer months spent away from school is full of fun times and relaxation. In our house it is a bit different. We spend a lot of time teaching our girls a lot of life skills. The latest skill is cooking. I figured if something happened to dear old mom, the family would wither away and sadly dear old dad only knows how to maneuver his way over to the drive-up window! If the girls can get down some simple meals then they would be able to take care of the family if I was down. So far they have learned the art of seasoning and cooking meats, cooking veggies, rice, mac and cheese (from a box! Hey, they are kids!), and lots of prep work (washing, chopping, etc.) They really seem to enjoy it and even more tasting their fantastic dishes they created!

  1. Good job - I think that cooking, an activity that is essential to our survival as a species, is not valued the way it used to be. Hence a population that is GROWING - you know what I mean. I commend you for arming your children with the knowledge of how to feed themselves, which in turn teaches them to respect the food on their plates.
