Home Economics - learning to cook at home
Over the lockdown, my family and I started cooking for each other every week. My mum had this thought when we were having dinner. We all thought it was a good idea and we tried it. It was a lot of fun making the dinners because we did not do anything like this before lockdown. We chose a day to cook and went to the shops instead of my parents doing everything.
I did this with my big brother. We worked in pairs and when we went shopping we were in pairs too. It was a great idea to work in pairs as you can help each other and we were just together.
This is my big brother and my usual cooking day. I think a lot more about "What time is it?", "How long is this going to take?" and “Do I have time to do this?” I’m more responsible with what I do and I’ve learned a lot of things like how to use the cooking utensils and it has helped me work in a team too. In addition, Sausage Ragu is now on the menu at our home along with a few more new recipes.
