Burnt Easy Mac

There are certain skills I want to pass on to my kids. Passions that I hope they will “catch”. I want them to love Jesus. To enjoy reading. To appreciate a good Judy Garland musical.

I am beginning to lose hope on those last two 🙁

But there are certain skills that I hope I don’t pass on: My athletic ability. My artistic skills. My cooking.

Ellie, my eleven-year-old, is a great cook. My other two….

Have both burnt Easy Mac.

Emma did it last year. Thomas carried on the tradition last night.

It’s what happens when you cook your Easy Mac the recommended three and a half minutes and forget to put water in.

It stinks.

Really, really badly.


Moral of the story: Some things really are your mother’s fault.
