Cooking with Dad

We’ve recently started a new tradition in our house… On Sunday nights the Munchkin and Hubby hit the kitchen for some culinary creation goodness.

How awesome is that!

Not only does it give me a night off cooking, it allows us to enjoy some different meals that I don’t always cook AND the Munchkin is getting some hands-on cooking lessons from someone happy to teach him! Plus, I get some time to myself. I think I might have to declare Sunday nights Tiny Moments night!

Tonight, while they’re preparing spaghetti and meatballs (done in a totally different tomato sauce than my usual one), I’m sitting out on the balcony, glass of wine in hand, typing away.

The sun has just set. The birds are chirping. The warm breeze is slowly cooling as evening drifts in.

Really, can life get any better than this?

Learning to cook is such an important part of life. It takes incredible patience (which is why Hubby has the job in our house!), but the life lessons learned by our kids are so incredibly valuable. Kids learn how to take risks, and use knives and stoves and saucepans safely. They learn how to plan, so that everything is ready at the same time. There are maths skills in measuring, reading skills in following a recipe, and sensory learning by discovering what flavour goes with which.

And then there is sense of achievement at the end, when a yummy meal is enjoyed by all.

I’m looking forward to my spaghetti and meatballs, lovingly prepared by the two people I love most in the world. Yummo!

Today I am grateful.
