A New Year
For me , one of the first things that sprung into my mind this year was .... "Well here we go again , another 365 evening meals to think of!"
When you have a family to feed and you are the one to cook, it is relentless. My children consume food like the rubbish truck does garbage. I am convinced that sometimes they just inhale it. I put it on the table, blink and it's gone. Most mealtimes I will be asked the question " Mum , can I have that potato, extra chicken wing, yorkshire pudding etc on your plate." I used to defend my food, but I've realised it's fruitless.
The battle is lost.
They are only going to get bigger and hungrier. I've learnt to cook large quantities of filling, family meals. I plan because I can't cope with getting home at 6 and having to think about what to cook with whinging children round my feet who I then give in to and they fill up on the wrong food before dinner.
But 365 meals - that's a lot....and that doesn't include breakfast, lunch and supper ( yes they have sandwiches before bed too.)
So imagine how happy I was when my hubby announced that he was going to cook on Saturday nights. Although he took a bit of convincing that cooking meant not just for me, but for the children as well, he is taking it in his stride and tonight he is the official Chef. He is not the tidiest of cooks, but who cares.....
I get a night off cooking!
