Since I was a little girl, I was taught that the domestic duty of cooking was not in the repertoire of the long line of independent women I come from. But I've recently come to realize that I can be an independent not-so-domesticated mommy and someone who cooks meals that my kids want to eat. So here's what I've decided to dedicate my "spare" time to in the next couple of months, in the hopes that I can get good enough at it to make it a regular habit: cooking! Not just cooking a meal here or there, but cooking meals that are good, healthy, and popular with my children! My oldest two are 4.5 year old twins, one boy and one girl. The youngest is only 7 months, so he's not quite ready to participate in my culinary experiment just yet. It's something I've been wanting to do for a while. It's something that I've needed to do for a while, not only for myself but for my children.
I've started Pinning all sorts of recipes. Trying to keep it simple and kid friendly are my main goals.
Keep checking back here for updates on what I'm calling my "Fun with Food" 20% Project!
On the one hand, it's refreshing to have the opportunity to dedicate some time this semester to personal growth. On the other, I'm a little apprehensive about finding the time to fit in exploration considering that my days are already packed solid from top to bottom (since this "20%" of time isn't actually built into my work week, it's in addition to). But, there's some things I've been meaning to do, so I'm going to give it my best shot to squeeze in some fun new adventures! So now the question is, what will I do?
