“Unlike a fountain that circulates the same water in an enclosed, perpetually recycling system, a human being circulates thoughts in an unlimited reservoir of self. Don’t limit yourself to being a mere fountain when you contain an ocean.”~Vera Nazarian

“Don’t focus on the words I write,
pay attention to the ones I don’t.
These lines won’t tell you much about me,
try to read in between these lines.”
― Anjum Choudhary
Where’s The Caboose?
This train sits all alone outside, never more in use.
Its’ tracks don’t go anywhere, and where is its caboose?
It must be such a lonesome life, box cars it does lack.
This train sits all alone outside, on a single piece of track.

“There is no spectacle on earth more appealing than that of a beautiful woman in the act of cooking dinner for someone she loves.” ~Thomas Wolfe
I love this statement. But, honestly, I hate cooking! When I first got married, at the young age of 18, I had never had to take care of daily cooking. My mom really hadn’t prepared me. Thankfully, my hubby had a mom who taught all four of her boys how to cook as well as she did. Bless her, otherwise, we may have starved. I could burn a pot of instant rice…seriously!
Over the years my cooking has improved, substantially. Between early lessons from hubby and my wonderful mother-in-law, and lots of imput later from my Gram, I have come a long way. And while baking is my favorite, I just never have come to really love to cook. It’s not that I can’t, I have some pretty tasty recipes up my sleeve, I just don’t like to!
So, in walks hubby. He is quite amazing as a cook and doesn’t mind [it]. We have come up with an ebb and flow that works for us (unless we are both exausted, then thank goodness for take-out). I will come up with meal plans, we split the cooking and whomever doesn’t cook, cleans the kitchen. I do a lot of cleaning up the kitchen…and eating. 😉
The kids have also had cooking lessons from both of us, as I refuse to have them reliant on anyone to cook for them. They both have learned to enjoy cooking and baking immensly. I am often surprised by the talent. My daughter often will bake recipes from scratch that I didn’t do until into my adulthood, and with no help. It’s actually quite incredible!
What about you, do you like to cook or bake? What about a fave recipe?
