Who Taught You How to Cook and When? We Asked, You Answered
We asked and you answered, Yakima Valley: Who taught you how to cook?
The question came up when it started to sink in that the post-covid pandemic rise in groceries and restaurant meals is never going back down. It has become pretty expensive to eat out anymore, let alone go shopping for a few ingredients to make dinner!
WHAT FORCED ME TO START COOKING AT HOME
After I balked at having to shell out over thirty dollars for TWO, count 'em, 2 sub sandwiches at a local chain restaurant, I decided it was high time to start making my own food at home. I also decided that it was about time that my 11-year-old child started helping me cook a few meals, too. I have spoiled her long enough! What is a good age to start teaching kids how to cook?
MY CHILD HATES LEARNING TO COOK FROM ME
It's not like I haven't tried to teach her how to cook before. Every time I attempt to teach her how to cook something, she huffs, puffs, and rolls her eyes inward. Perhaps someone else should teach her how to cook since she hates having to learn it from me. Unfortunately for her, she has no siblings or nearby grandparents, aunts, uncles, or cousins who could pitch in to help her learn how to cook. She's stuck learning how to cook from me!
