The Art of Cooking

“Yummy! did you cook this?” inquired my teen as he licked the last crumbs off his plate.

“Obviously! In this shutdown, I’ve been cooking every day.” I said in an exasperated tone, which was easily caught upon.

“Chill, Mom. I was complimenting your cooking.” 

That praise made me quickly come and hug him since getting appreciated for my cooking was the last thing I had ever dreamed would happen. 

I had become better at planning my meals with limited ingredients, but to make a delicious one was like a cherry on the cake. 

I guess: Practice makes one perfect.

Yes, one has to be more creative when there's less at hand. Fun take!

Ha! That's a benefit of shutdowns -- we get to practice cooking skills! At least (or at last!) her reward was praise.
