Tag Archives: Children cooking and sharing between cultures

You are never too young to cook!

I believe that if children want to cook then they should be allowed…There are always things they can do …..Even Lily she bashes the biscuit crumbs for the cheesecake base..she is a dab hand with the pestle and mortar and can cut a mean mushroom. She also has to clean up..you cook…You clean…Is my motto…

 

Aston has progressed, he cooks all the steaks and eggs, the pie tops and is my taste tester for Thai food… A bit more lime or fish sauce and ramp up the chillies is his mantra.

Even Lily especially when it is beef salad sits with tears rolling down her cheeks saying Ped (hot) and still eats it…lol…. A true Thai 🙂

Aston sharing what he has cooked…His friends in the village wanted to try our food..this time it was spaghetti bolognese….next time he is going to make carbonara so he tells me…I think food unites us..well it certainly does here.

I have had this post half done for a while…Current events have greatly saddened me and I believe we can change things although some things have to come from those in power and publicly.

Some of my grandchildren are mixed race and we love them all equally and are very proud of them. I believe food can transcend some barriers if we share. We do this and if my grandson comes across prejudice we make bread…He can knead and bash that bread and we then get lovely bread and his anger at any injustice is forgotten…Dough is a wonderful thing and anyone who dares to tell me it cannot change …I will defy them and say it must change..there are many wonderful tolerant, loving people in this world and we can’t change the past but we can affect the future and need to look forward to a better one for our children and grandchildren by taking a stand against those who don’t want that…If we all did that it would have to pass on that message that says we don’t want this, we don’t agree with this… But stand and be counted..we must do that…

Until next time stay safe, laugh a lot and be happy ..I love you all and am thankful that you read my posts….If you like them please reblog and share….
