For the first time in my marriage, I can proudly call my wife a cook. Until recently, I had always done the food shopping and the cooking. I enjoyed searching for new recipes and cooking tips, and filled an entire folder with all kinds of recipes. But my time was limited, and I often made the same things all the time.
Well, times sure have changed! She had already mastered a few simple dishes like her famous beans, vegetables and tomato sauce casserole. But now she’s started to get adventurous, making whole wheat muffins on a regular basis for the kids to snack on, as well as delicious quinoa and black bean burgers, and tasty felafel balls. She even tried a tofu recipe.
We have been trying to make as much homemade food as we can and buy less processed foods. I think this is part of her maternal instinct to provide for the kids. She is having fun cooking and enjoys finding new recipes to try. I am very proud of her.
(Now I just have to make sure I don’t overeat her delicious food!)
