    I can remember doing simple kitchen chores at the age of four.....they were age related........napkins, flatware etc......

    My first meatloaf was at the age of 7, I can not remember a time when I could not peel potatoes, or fry eggs, boil a pot of beans.......


    At  11, I could cook a full meal, meat, veggies, potatoes, bread, tea.......for a large farm family.

    Being a farm kid, not only was I expected to cook, but to feed the animal that would later be my food source.......the ugliness of the business came somewhat later.


    In our home, 'desert' was for the ritzy.........I can bake the basic breads and cakes.......but baking is not my forte.
