Domestic What?

Ok, So I am really trying to make an effort to cook better suppers... I'm good at breakfast and lunch, but not dinner... I am also pretty crafty and can Crotchet a pretty hip blanket...

Now that I am getting older I want to start doing things like preserve's and other traditional good's that my Nanny and Mom have always made over the years.. Last fall I made pickles and beets.. they were awesome and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed doing it.. so last week I made from scratch Perogies (my Nanny's recipe), I thought of her alot while I made them.. she would have been proud of me... I have always counted on my Mom to make these things for me but want to make it apart of my life with my family.. so I tried Jam as well and to my surprise I enjoyed that too and it turned out great.. Im learning and hoping that it will be something that my boys will see me make these things every year, and help me as they get older and have it as a memory, just like I do with my Nanny and my Mom...

  1. Hi Tosh...such a wonderful thing you are doing! I also have been slowly learning how to make all the wonderful dishes my mom makes (and thus have learned from my grandma as well)..she makes a mean wonton and spring roll! Maybe we'll have to swap one day :)
