As a child growing up I lived on a ranch so the possibilities were endless. It’s hard to pick just one that has significant meaning to me. Some memories I have with my mom are cooking, sewing, going to town to get groceries, going to the Plaza to clean apartments for elderly people, and taking care of the chickens. Some memories I have with my dad are riding horses to move cows, working in the hayfield, going to brandings and fixing fence.
Cooking with my mom is a fond memory of mine. She never followed a recipe and still doesn’t. I always ask her how she knows what to put in and how much to put in and she says “I just dump.” Everything she makes tastes so good! We would make anything imaginable. My favorite was cookies because I could eat the dough!
I thank my mom for teaching me how to cook and bake but nothing I make tastes as good as hers! Still to this day I don’t know how she does it!
Sounds like fun! That's the way my mother taught me how to cook too.....no recipes and no tasting.....she taught me to cook by sight and smell and eventually you just know what types of spices and foods go together and what doesn't and how much. Do you still ride horses?
I can't imagine picking just one of those memories was easy. They all sound so close to your heart and like so much fun to experience as a kid.
It sounds like you had a wonderful childhood with tons of beautiful memories to cherish! It seems like children of today are so caught up in electronics and being technologically savvy. I guess that it's just a sign of the times and nothing seems to ever slow down in the present!
This is great. Who knows... maybe this skill is handy when you go out in the field with clients you see. Also, you maybe able to create a cooking group for these clients.
