Cooking with Kids Week
Last night I was watching the food network, like I have off and on this week.
Sometimes I like to watch it, most the time I don't. I don't watch a lot of T.V. in the day, obviously, as we homeschool. And in the evening, there's dinner and family time before the kids go to bed, and then I do work.
For recipes that call for sauteeing and ask for garlic to be added with other items in oil before you start sauteeing, add the garlic last. That will help prevent it from burning and have the best flavor possible.
Cooking tips, tons of recipes, and special recipe downloads, are available 24 hours a day at the Recipe Club website.
If you purchased your Cooking With Kids System with the Recipe Club, your username and password will be emailed to you today - so if you don't get it, let me know.
So, anyway, I had seen an advertisement that this week was going to be "Cook with Your Kids Week".
It's very interesting to see that they are saying the same things that I've been saying for almost two years now:
- Cooking with your kids creates a bond
- Cooking with your kids gives them confidence
- Cooking with your kids is fun
- Cooking with your kids reinforces math skills
- Cooking with your kids teaches them a skill that will last a lifetime
Blah, blah, blah.
Anyway, it's great that they are finally giving out, what is in my opinion, the most important aspects of cooking...
BUT IT SHOULD BE FOR MORE THAN 1 WEEK A YEAR!
Sure, it's a reminder, but one week a year of anything is not enough for our kids. They need to be exposed to it week after week, year after year, for it to take hold and become a part of their lives.
And, I'm not talking about the "life skill" part.
I'm talking about the "life-time family connection" part.
Something that they will pass on down to their children.
So, let this week be a reminder of the importance of cooking with our kids. But, let it also be a time to start afresh - to commit to this vital part of parenting.
