Today, after work, I told my mom that I am too hungry, and I asked her politely to cook me something for a quick bite. She finally get up, and dragged me to the kitchen. I told her that I have to get online and finish up some unfinished business, then she told me "I don't care, you never know how to cook, if you never learn." Without resistance, I have to follow her, and learn step by step. She actually taught me some basic cooking, and how to mix the condiments with all other ingredients. We made macaroni salad with Gorgonzola. Not bad though for my first time, because she holding my hands on this step by step. I am fulfilled already.

That's great. My kids knows how to cook simple dishes so they won't get hungry when i am not around. I teach them how to cook simple dishes when they reached 10 years old. Now my kids are all young teenagers...and i am not worried if they have eaten their meal or not. But i am afraid that our groceries and fridge will be emptied before the next scheduled time for marketing and grocery time

Excellent! One never knows if in the near future one is left by oneself and not know how to fend for oneself. This is actually really good for a young man/women to know how to do so that they do can be independent. Some people never learn and do fine with simple meals and or eating out but knowing how to cook can save money also.

I think learning new thing will be very good for us, because our knowledge will increase and will likely be useful for our own. Do not stop to learn new things useful and positive, and you have a best mother.

That's great! You have to thank your mom for teaching you how to cook, it's not everyday that moms are there for us to tend to our needs.

I wish I could get my husband to cook, but I know he won't. I am glad that your mom is teaching you how to cook because it is a good skill to have. I know when I have kids I will be teaching them how to cook even if I do have sons they will learn how to cook. I have several other easy recipes that do not take long to make. If you want them please let me know.

You have a great mom that wants her son to know how to cook. I have tried to teach my daughter how to cook also but she just seems to not be interested. She will wish she learned one fo these days.
