An aspect of being a wife and mother is cooking for your family. My mother is teaching me how to plan, prepare and serve food for my family. So on Tuesday, I fixed dinner. I have fixed meals before but this time was different.
It was different, because I did it with no assistance from my mother. And everyone liked it. Previously, when I fixed meals I didn’t try to use my own judgement, so my mother was always involved. Not that I don’t want her guidance, but I do have to learn how to think on my own. Using discernment and good judgement is important because, one day (Lord-willing) I’ll have my very own family. I’ll have to feed and take care of them on my own and Mom might not be there to help.
Another reason it was different was because there always something wrong with the dish–except for one time when I fixed some awesome steak. 🙂 But yeah. There was either too much of this or not enough of that. You know?
However, now that I have succeeded in making this dish, I feel better about cooking. I look forward to introducing new and different dishes to my family. We tend to eat the same types of food a lot. Over and over. I know this is a kind of unrelated question but, do you know what food I can’t stand? 😕
Mixed vegetables. The frozen ones you get from the store. Ugh, how I despise them! 😡
January 23, 2015: This is an update! I do not despise mixed veggies anymore…I eventually realized that I couldn’t stand the brand my mother was buying at the time. She now buys organic frozen veggies from our bulk store and I LOVE them! 😀
I think that’ll be my next meal. (Part of it at least) I will get some fresh vegetables. Then I’ll find a recipe for the prefect seasoning for mixed veggies. Yep, that’s what I’m gonna do!
I’ll defeat and conquer those wretched frozen mixed vegetables!!!
Okay that’s all for today.
