I wholeheartedly agree with all of you. When i left home I really had no idea, except for alittle baking. I am making sure my children get in the kitchen whenever possible. It is so important for them to have these skills. Freecampingaussie, you're right....it is sad.
Josnwz, good on you for teaching your kids. It must be great when they come up with those variations:)
Shiningirisheyes...that's also what it's about isn't it....enjoying together!
Yoginjoy.... Sorry to hear that you did not learn&suffer from headaches. Try my trick. Start googling&before you shop, plan your meals ahead so you know what ingredients to buy. It's so important to feed our bodies well, regularly.
Skyslave, you brought up some very good points re. Safety
Volitans, totally agree. Eating out should be done occasionally. It sure is more expensive&you can't always be sure what you are eating either.
Vespawoolf, great that you learnt at home too.
Marntzu, what a wonderful passion!
