Today is Day 11

One of my quiet and faithful TOS crew leaders, Brenda, over at Garden of Learning, is doing a Gratitude Challenge for the month of November. I am pleased to join in and should be posting something I am grateful for each day.

Today, I am grateful that my son is a GREAT cook!

I am in awe that my teenage son is such an amazing chef. He can make anything and it comes out delicious. For example–yesterday, he wanted to make a cake for some company we were having. At the store, I told him he did not need to buy powdered sugar for the frosting–that I already had some. Later that night, we realized I was out of the powdered sugar.

My response was, oh well, we can’t have cake then, tonight.

His? He went online and found a recipe using regular sugar, butter, etc that he cooked and beat, etc.

We had the best cake EVER! And, even better, he is willing to make the “not” exciting recipes as well, recipes that actually feed us dinner when I don’t have much to work with…

Often, I beg him to cook–not because I’m tired, just because his food is better. He’s got a gift for it.
