I can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving! My mind is whirling with all the possibilities of tantalizing dishes I may cook. I can’t wait to pull out my cook books.
Every year my family tries to do something special for Thanksgiving with our food. Some years we make dishes from other countries and a few years we did lasagna instead of the traditional meal. This year we’re going to do something artistic with some of the dishes. I can’t wait to show you the pictures of what everyone comes up with.
One of my top favorite things about this season is the time I spend with the kids as we crowd in the kitchen to cook together. My kids have been cooking since they turned eight. It’s one of those life skills we found very important to teach them. And they are great at it. They aren’t afraid to try new things to eat or cook. And they’ll give me a list of all the ingredients they’ll need when they pick the dish they plan to make so it’s just the way they want it. It’s just pure fun.
The biggest problem I face is the amount of food that crowds every inch of the tables we set out for the dinner. When everyone’s done eating, I always struggle to find places to store it all. But that’s not really a problem, is it?
Do your kids like to cook? What’s their favorite thing to make?
