Get Cooking! Small Success Thursday

Small-Success-Thursday-400pxThursdays at begin with a look at the past week’s Small Successes!


reading at Pams weddingI proclaimed the first reading (from Proverbs) at my godchild’s wedding on Saturday. It was a beautiful wedding and I was honored to have a small part in it. (And the church was lovely, but So.Much.Marble.So.Many.Echoes.) Congratulations to my godchild Pam and her new husband Pat!

Then both Lisa Hendey AND Sarah Reinhard got cooking. And the other day, Father Daren mentioned his favorite tuna recipe, and gave me permission to share that one as well. We’ve got some good cooking coming up every Friday this summer! 3 cheers for stepping out of my comfort zone and speaking up. It’s not something I often do, but when I do manage it, the results are usually good ones.


DSC_0176I taught Little Brother how to cook a dinner all by himself! I converted Big Brother’s Chicken Adobo into a slow-cooker recipe for a project I’m working on with author Cynthia Toney. Little Brother made a stove-free recipe, thanks to the slow cooker and the rice cooker–and he can cook this dinner without the help of adults.

  1. Nice work! Congratulations on a great week! Need to start teaching some of my younger ones how to cook.

    • Teaching kids to cook is always an effort for me, because it’s so much easier and faster (and, let’s face it, QUIETER) to do it myself. I am trying to make it an enjoyable experience for both of us.

  2. I remember At one point I sometimes made a batch of cookies with out using the mixture so as to not tip off my boys that I was making them. I did not want their “Help” at those times.
