I was inspired by a story that i just read. A lady cooked just for herself. I don’t cook for myself but i love to cook for my friends and especially my family! I feel like i am doing my job as a mum, to take care of my children and provide them with nutritious meals. I feel so satisfied when my kids are sitting there eating and they all say thankyou for their food and thankyou for cooking it. I can tell that they appreciate it. I love when my kids turn to me and say “it’s so yummy mum” That makes me smile so much! The best way to thank me for cooking for an hour or so is to say that it taste yummy! I have been so inspired by the delish recipes on here and i have been cooking like mad! My super fussy middle child has been eating a lot more and tonight she polished off my fried rice! She did say that she didn’t want to eat it and could i make her something else but i told her that she would like it when it was ready. She actually ate all of her food! I am so proud of her as she ate the vegies in it as well. She is the kid who won’t eat her food at all if she sees a vegie in it. Thankyou to all the lovely mums who contribute recipes on here. I love that you have trialled these out on your family, deemed the recipe a success and then shared it on this site!
