What’s Up This Week in The Bloom – 7.29.22

Recently, it occurred to us that our children are all growing up, and we’ve not taught them how to cook all that well. It’s not their fault. It’s all ours, of course. First of all, David and I love ending our day with music and cooking the evening meal together. Sometimes we even pour a glass of wine to sip on while we catch up on the day while cooking. It’s always been our time to connect. But, as therapeutic as that is, it hasn’t helped our kids learn the basic food-making skills. So we set up the calendar so everyone has one night a week to cook, and that’s when I found out I’m a lousy teacher. I mean, How do you show someone how to do something without doing it? The solution? Everyone unanimously agrees that I get the time-out chair. That’s right; I have to literally sit while they cook. I can coach, but I can’t do anything myself. I’ve never been shooed out of my own kitchen before. I suppose it’s a good thing, and I’ll be glad in the long run when they can cook for themselves. My hats off to those of you who have successfully raised your children to know how to cook. How did you do it? Maybe you should write a book about it. I would be first in line to buy it! On another note, we’re excited to resume our camping series this week. We’ll take you on our adventure to Pine Acres Blue Lakes Resort, where the water is always cool, refreshing, and blue. We’ve still got another few weeks of summer left. Let’s make the most of it! Have a great weekend Lake County.
