Food For Thought Thursday

Thanks for stopping by my Food For Thought Thursday Post!   If you are looking for Mr. Linky and you'd like to join in the fun and share something that's on your plate today, we'd love it if you'd play along in this new blog hop!

 Here's The Link:



 I've been teaching my 12 year old Son  Max how to bake various items since he was a little guy but we've always done sweets, cookies, cakes, brownies etc. Last year I taught him how to cook a pork roast in the crock pot and he has successfully shown that off for dinner guests who were thrilled. This week though I really wanted to teach him to cook some basic easy items for himself so he is able to cook and eat when he goes away to college...LOL. So last night he made his own hamburger, he put too much seasoning on it but was so proud of himself he ate it anyway.

This morning he made scrambled eggs. Now the funny thing about this is, he is a really, really...did I say REALLY, picky eater and has never touched a scrambled egg in his life! So today when I asked him what type of eggs he wanted to cook and he said scrambled I about fell over! Well he cooked them with no problem and loved them! SO news for parents with picky eaters, let them cook it, they are more interested in eating it when they have invested their own labors or maybe because they know there are no hidden surprises inside?



I think he liked the eggs!  Now I have to teacher him table manners....LOL!  Actually it was his idea to pose for this shot to entertain you all. 

Stop by tomorrow and see what's happening for Paint Party Friday!

It's such a good idea that he's learning to cook so early! It's a life skill really.

you know thats the truth, my kids are in their 30's and have kids, actually I have grandson your sons age and this works with them also. Your son is a very handsome young man and I think its wonderful that he shares this passion with you,, memory makers for sure,

Good for you, and good for Max. I made sure my son knew how to cook enough so he wouldn't starve! And you're right that if kids cook something themselves they know just what went into it and are more likely to eat it. Great post....love the last photo of Max.
