Can you cook?
es, I like cooking . . . well, most of the time. I do much better when I have meals planned out and am ahead rather than trying to figure out something at the time the meal should be made! I love watching the cooking shows, and take down a lot of recipes. But, I am also one that does not fully follow recipes. I usually add my own twist to it, to make it my own. Also, with having a large family, I may be following a recipe that is for a “family” which may be only four to six, so I may not double it but add more veggies or put it over rice or potatoes or just do something to stretch it more.
I like to bake too, which can certainly be a downfall for me because I love sweets and desserts, of course, especially chocolate. I also love breads, muffins and cinnamon rolls from scratch. I have my own wheat grinder and will buy whole wheat and grind it to make fresh wheat flour. I try to make muffins just about every Saturday night to allow our Sunday mornings to be less stressful to have something to grab and eat. It helps with not having a lot of cereal bowls and silverware to wash either before church or before the Sunday dinner. And usually when I make meals, I make a lot! It will take some learning as our children are leaving our home to make less, but it sure helps with leftovers too.
For holidays I like to make a nice family dinner, lots of different things. My favorite one is Easter and Friday Passover. I love the meanings into the meal we can make, and the children sharing about it and talking it. It can be such a beautiful picture.
