What are you doing with the kids this weekend?
C. then announces that he is going to have to throw away the tortilla he has started preparing because it has a slight rip in it. Of course I was aghast! But then I remembered a story from my childhood.
"When I was your age and learning to cook, one of the first things I tried to prepare was fried eggs over easy (and I don't even like eggs!). One day I was "practicing" cooking the eggs, and every time I broke the yolk while flipping the egg, I threw the egg out. When Grandma found out I had wasted almost a dozen eggs, she freaked out!"
I gave him a hug, showed him how to refold the quesadilla so the cheese wouldn't spill out of the rip, and he and E. enjoyed their snack.
So why not cook with your kids this weekend?
