cooking with mom
Last Saturday, Lonnie and I tried to get some yard work done while the kids hung out in the hammock. When we had done this in the past, the kids seemed to really enjoy just hanging out and relaxing. This time, Max wanted to sit up the entire time and watch his dad mow the
lawn, and Maya seemed very scared of the noisy lawn mower. So I took her inside to make some pie. It is always nice to have a good excuse to make pie.
I should have something to say here about gender roles, but I will just say that everyone loves pie and sometimes I really enjoy spending time with my kids one at a time so it was nice to have an excuse to come inside and make a pie with my little Maya.
I've decided to post some of the recipes that I make and like on a blog so that I can easily find them again when I need to figure out something to cook. I probably won't update it very often, but just use it as an occasional resource. So here you go....http://goodcookinggirl.blogspot.com
Lonnie and I bought the dress that Maya is wearing while we were in Guatemala in May of 2005. Our lives have sure changed a lot since then.
