Tuesday Summer Tips

It seems all the posts so far are having to do with food or cooking so I'm keeping with the trend although I'd already decided what my tip was when I discovered this. My goal for the summer is to teach my kids to cook something new. New to them - not necessarily to me. I have told each of them to look through the cookbooks and watch the Food Network and decide on something they'd like to learn. I also try to encourage something that is good for summer - not a lot of oven use to heat up the house. They are excited to try their new recipes out on the family. And I am excited to let them do the cooking once a week.

A version of this was going to be one of my future Tuesday summer tips. I have 5 kids (all grown now). As they grew up both hubby and I worked. so I taught each of them how to cook a hamburger based meal (tacos, chili, meatloaf, etc). So when that odd day happened when I would be late getting home I could call the Kids and assign one of them dinner. They knew what meal they were to make and we all got a hot homemade meal that night.
