I love to cook. I cook dinner every night for my husband and myself, and not in the half-assed “I have to make dinner” way. New recipes abound in my kitchen, and I really enjoy experimenting with them.
Now I’m starting to make babyfood from raw ingredients and I find it exciting that Spencer is starting a whole new level of her development. Before long (well, a few years) she’s going to want to help in the kitchen, which is what I’m really looking forward to.
Cooking is like chemistry to me, which was the only science I ever excelled in in high school. Aside from that, it’s awesome to know that I have a skill. Possibly a skill I could turn into a job, or at the very least one that I know I’m better at than someone else. It’s also an ability I get to pass on by teaching my daughter how to do it.
Do you have any self-learned skills you want to pass on to your kids? Do you know of any fun, kid friendly kitchen experiments I should try out in a few years when she’s ready?
