It's no secret that I am not a big fan of cooking.
Every once in a while I get motivated to make something, bake something, or throw something in the crockpot. It's not very often though. Thankfully Gunner is a great cook and enjoys doing it.
I am good at meal planning, so I handle that portion, and I will usually start dinner. Once Gunner is home, I pass the baton and he finishes it up. It works for us.
When Gunner leaves, we eat a lot of steamed stuff, or quick stuff like oatmeal.
Em can make a mean spaghetti. Tonight she wanted to make hamburgers, and they are excellent. Grilled cheese and tomato soup are something else she can cook.
The best part.....she LOVES to cook! How can I argue with that? She offered to cook at least twice a week while her dad is deployed. Hmmmmm....I could get into this.
I'm not a slave driver, so if she doesn't want to, she won't have to, but if she does want to.....I can't say no! I might be hampering the next Top Chef--okay so maybe not the next Top Chef, but maybe she will at least like cooking more than me!
She just found a box of brownie mix and asked to make those for dessert. I already see that this deployment is shaping up to be a little bit different.
