While I realize that it is Food on Friday over at Ann Kroeker’s blog, I also realize my husband and oldest son will not be home for dinner tonight!!! My oldest kid is the cook of the house, I have retired!!! 🙂
No, James is a ‘Pastry Cook’, school and all……..and the man, my boy ; ) ,can cook!! But, alas, I am on my own with the youngest son. Now the youngest, Shane, is a very picky eater! So what is for dinner???
What does the Boy like and will he cook? Can he cook? Yes, he can!!
I was a working mom most of their lives. Therefore my boys will make 2 women very happy women when they marry! These men can cook, clean, and do laundry, correctly. These men can be trusted with bleach!! Amazing I know! God was good to me.
Now, yes, Shane is able to cook, but what will he cook? Ravioli! That is what he will cook!!! He can even make the sauce! But I will do that tonight. Maybe he will cook with me, that remains to be seen, but here is my recipe for ” my pasta sauce” the original recipe is published on Helium, check out the link!
