I am the mother of 6 (only 5 of whom I birthed), and the grandmother of 10. Since my children were born in ?70, ?73, ?80, ?85, and ?90, I have always had kids in different stages of life; so my life has never been boring. I homeschooled the youngest 3 for 15 years(which I really really enjoyed), but my youngest daughter is now going to the University of Hawaii. The next oldest daughter is a theater manager and English teacher in Seattle. Our 4 sons are are all merried, living in West Virginia, Nevada, and Oregan and are the parents of all our grandchildren .I did the Cub Scout leader a long time ago; then the Girl Scout leader and like that a lot better. I also love to garden and to cook. I started cooking in grade school, was fixing dinner every night as my ?family chore? by the time I was in junior high, and have been enjoying it ever since. I think when you enjoy cooking, it is contagious. My married sons both share some of the cooking with their wives; my college daughter has enjoyed putting on Sunday Suppers in her dorm. Reading is also a favorite pastime, but my ?reading? is done via books on tape since I am legally blind. I love Zarr because it allows me access to so many recipes, as well as the benefit of others? experiences (thanks to modern technology and a specialty computer software program designed for the blind and visually impaired. My husband (DH is an understated term) and I are involved in our church choir together, enjoy traveling, visiting friends around the country, and taking our grandchildren and Girl Scouts camping.
I love variety; if I?ve made a recipie in the last month, it?s not time to have it again. And I love trying new things. I especially love international dishes: French, German, Indian, Chinese, Thai ? etc. I love Italian, too, but not if it has pasta in it. Pasta and paste have something in common for me (I think they're both tasteless); my daughters think I?m weird. I prefer making (and eating) soups, salads and main dishes to desserts ? probably because I have always had to fight the weight. Low-carbing it has made the fight a lot easier, but it will probably always be a struggle.
