I get asked all the time, why do you cook all the time? It’s funny that you should ask that because I have been thinking about writing a post on why I cook all the time.
I guess the main reason that I do so much cooking is because I love feeding my family. To me, cooking is a way to show them that I care about them and love them. I hate to see families where the kids are always asking whats for supper and when they find out its just another fast food meal, they get sad.
The joy on my son and daughter’s faces when they see that I have made another delicious meal makes me all happy inside. I can’t explain it. 🙂 The look of love on my hubby’s face when he sees his favorite meal being prepared is a joy to my heart.
Food means a close family. Ya know that old saying that a family that eats together. . .no wait. That’s the family that prays together stays together. Same thing for those who eat together. It is a proven fact that when you have dinner together with your family, you build bonds, you grow closer, and you spend time talking to the ones you love the most.
Food means time spent together. When my kids want to make something in the kitchen, we spend time together eating and talking and laughing–just having a good time. Plus they are learning some very special skills that will come in handy when they get out on their own. And they get to lick the spoon 🙂
So the next time you are looking for something to do with your family, find a recipe you’ve been wanting to try, get the fam in the kitchen and bake away! You never know what kind of creation you will come up with 🙂
What family traditions are you making?
