Cooking food at home can be a great activity if you involve the family. Get the kids to help with planning the meals. The planning starts with looking at what you have to work with. I make a menu for the week at the end of a family meal. The planning involves everyone and we negotiate what we are going to eat and who is going to cook. I am a firm believer that we all need to participate in the cooking because we all participate in the eating! Get the kids cooking too. When we are all part of cooking it becomes fun. We share our love in our food. Get Sharing!
