Suzy Homemaker ~ Unfinished Lessons
It’s that time again…a new year and new “I will” statements to be established. I liked a comment from a fellow blogger who prefers to “choose a word that I will try to make my motto or to exemplify what I hope for in 2014.” Terrific idea!
One word that quickly comes to my mind…COOK! An area of struggle for me has always been cooking! Ugh! My boys continue to remind me, “We ate a lot of Chiaros!” Chiaros was a wonderful Italian restaurant five minutes from home. Delicious, homemade goodness complete with a drive-through window! Perfect for this Mom with busy after school schedules for the boys.
My best friend (since the seventh grade – she loves when I say that) is a fabulous cook and baker. Everything is always soooo good! I simply smile as I recall stopping by for a visit and there she was, rolling and cutting her homemade pasta dough! I couldn’t believe it! We laughed as I stated emphatically, “Now that’s where I’d draw the line. They have boxed pasta ya know!”
It was then I nicknamed my BFF, Suzy Homemaker. Webster defines Suzy Homemaker as: a housewife who manages a household, especially with enthusiasm; also the stereotype of any woman who chooses a traditional female role. Perfectly describes my Brenda. She’s a wonderful wife, mother and dear friend to all!
My goal this year is to continue to fine-tune my cooking and become a good COOK! For some, this comes easily . For others, well, I had a hard time cooking with my little Suzy Homemaker Oven. There’s always hope! 🙂
