I remember all the many many years of cooking dinner for my family. We sat down together almost every night - Mama, Papa, three girls. The food was pretty basic but healthy and it gave us a chance to talk and laugh and share. I miss that full dinner table now that my daughters are grown up and on their own.
However - there are benefits to having adult children, especially ones who love to cook. Especially one who lives with me.
Add to that the joy of these fabulous roasted root vegetables, courtesy of the Brooklyn daughter - who knew carrots came in so many different colors?
All three of my daughters are great cooks - and inventive ones. They remind me of myself at 20 - always trying new things, getting fancy. Now, I am so focused on other things in my life, preparing food is at the bottom of my list.
How about you? Do you cook every day and love it?
