Some of my fondest memories growing up are in the kitchen. My grandmother is the type that can make something out of nothing. And believe me, we had some rough times where she had to do just that. I don’t remember a bad meal ever coming out of that kitchen. Even when the chips were down! That says a lot about someone’s cooking. If you can accomplish making a meal out of whatever you can find and it actually tastes good, I think you’re doing pretty good.
Nowadays, many families are just too busy to cook dinner. I mean, let’s face it, between working, school pick up, homework and after school activities, most of us barely have time to think! I am one of those Moms. As a matter of fact, throw my PTA duties into that equation as well. Sometimes, I come home and am so exhausted. I literally pop a pizza in the oven and plop down for the evening.
