But it’s Friday, today we bake!
Fridays became a synonym for kitchen adventure time. Youngsters would come up with their own ideas, being mindful of our limited budget and even coming up with solutions – “Instead of buying pre-made tortillas, we can make them from scratch and save money!”. And once again my heart swelled with happiness. Cooking became a fun activity where together we learn new recipes, techniques and basic rules of the kitchen kingdom. Or republic, if you will.
At the end of the day it’s not about being perfect or precise. It’s about discussing why we don’t use metal on Teflon™, how and why we separate trash or what is the best way to cut onions. It’s also about learning from our own mistakes in a safe place.
