"Cooking With Joy" sounds like a wonderful title for a Food Network show, doesn't it? But, the Joy I'm referring to is my daughter.
While the other children were at the soccer fields, Joy and I stayed home to fix dinner, Lettuce Wraps. Today, she was my helper. She dried the Boston Bib lettuce. She had a great time!
After I cooked the onions, garlic, and water chestnuts, I poured in the Hoison Sauce.
Then Joy and I had this conversation:
Joy: Is that barbecue sauce?
Me: No, it is Hoison Sauce.
Joy: Poison Sauce?
Me: No, Hoison Sauce.
Joy: Good thing it's not Poison Hoison.
Me: Yes, it is.
So, we continued having a good time together this evening fixing dinner; one of the few times I am alone with just one of my children.
I let her play with my camera. Not a bad shot, considering she could only hold the camera up with her tiny hands for all of ten seconds at a time.
She loved snapping pictures while I sipped my ginseng tea. Then we ate dinner together before the gang with a big appetite came through the door.
Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri
