You love to cook salsa; your family loves what you cook. But lately kids have been nagging about eating out. You are still cooking the same things, still as well, but the interest has been going down. You are even finding it monotonous. So what can you do to break this cycle of boredom? Here are some tips which will take care of it:
Break your rules of cooking. Make a Mexican dish for a change. Bring out the cook-books and pick out an exotic looking recipe. Nothing cultivates more interest than something which breaks your usual norms of cooking. When you cook something new and different, it will not only be a new and exciting chance for you to experiment, but it will also break the spell of regularity and give your family something new, different and tasty. Every once in a while change your cooking patterns. Do not stick to one for a long time. This gives variety to your cooking, which others will envy and your family will appreciate. Experimentation always comes with the risk of going wrong, but if it clicks, it works out beautifully.
Connecting Through Food
Cooking a meal of salsa does not mean you are limited to your kitchen. Take out some task like chopping up vegetables, or peeling sprouts into the living room. Better still, get your kids in the kitchen and have fun. While you need to be very careful with kids in the kitchen, if you delegate some easy tasks to your children, it will not only keep them occupied but also help you connect with them better. If you want to have some fun, let your child invent his recipe. Children enjoy doing anything creative, and with you to look over, if you cook up something that is tasty, no one feels as proud and happy as your little head chef. If you let everyone know how much your child helps you come up with the evening meal at the dining table, it is truly one of the happiest moments you will notice in your child’s life and consequently your own life.
Kitchen Loving Spouse
A great way to spend time with your spouse is to get them to help out with the cooking when they are free. True, they love the sitcom or the ball game on the TV, but once in a while, such free moments can be stolen to make them memorable for your benefit. He may not be a great cook, and possibly even a hindrance in your cooking faster, but those moments of confusion when you burst out laughing over his attempts to break an egg, are too beautiful to keep out. Cooking with your partner makes both of you feel a sense of harmony and belonging to each other. Doing chores like cleaning up dishes for your kitchen queen, can mean so much to her. She would never ask for it, even say no, but in her heart, she would be enjoying every moment with you.
Cooking salsa for a family is one of the best things for some women. When it gives them a chance to bond deeply with their loved ones, it gets better.
