Okay, so I'm no Julia Childs

When I ran frantically into the kitchen screaming "oh NO! I burnt the nachos!" Maddie marched into the living room, planted her hands firmly on her hips, and pronounced "Dad! Didn't you know you shouldn't let Mom cook that?"

Oh yeah, you can imagine how much he's loving THAT. I suspect I'll hear that phrase repeated over and over again every time I screw up in the kitchen from now to eternity.

Sigh. I concede the kitchen throne to my husband. It is rightfully his anyway. I'll try not to care that my kids trust his cooking more than mine.

Come to think of it, I think I'll use it to my advantage the next time he tries to convince me it's my turn to cook.

I wish my husband knew where the kitchen was ....occasionally!

If your husband enjoys cooking, let him have the throne!

Mine has no clue but to how to warm things up in the toaster oven and microwave.

I was forced to switch, guess I'm a little bitter.

At least she added the word "that" to the end of that sentence ....

I conceded the kitchen to my husband a few years ago. When I realized I have within me the capacity to screw up macaroni and cheese - it was over.

While Marcel is a good cook, you ain't so bad either. Don't be too hard on yourself!
