Everyone is a Homemaker - even men

Sunday our Bishop spoke on the importance of learning skills that will help you during times of economic downturns, such as learning how to cook, how to sew, how to garden, how to budget, etc. He had felt impressed for a few months to speak on that subject, especially when we have a ward with 50 percent young marrieds. I couldn't have felt more inspired by his comments, that I too have felt that our young people have missed so much in the art of "building" a home with skills you have learned and mastered.

Well tonight that truth was very evident. After my "Cooking with Kids" class, a young married woman came up to me and said, "I don't know how to cook, I don't know how to plan a meal, and I know I can't do this the rest of my life. Please help me."

Help is on the way! I gave her a few things she and her husband will need to do, and then we would meet this next week and plan a menu (yes I know - Ann doesn't plan a menu, she just decides 5 mintues before!). I can plan, I just choose not to :)

What a fun class. I love cooking with my kids, but only the boys want to learn. Kelsey is going to need help some day, she may be calling you!!!

I'm a five minutes before kind of gal too...I just can't live so scheduled...wish I could...I just can't make myself eat spaghetti today when I feel like Mexican.

It is sad that no one knows how to cook anymore.
