Start Young, Never Go Hungry – Friday Fictioneers

Good Wednesday morning, my peeps!  How serendipitous today’s Friday Fictioneer picture from Jennifer Pendergast, chosen by Rochelle, is a food-related one.  My eldest is 23 today and is a foodie and fabulous cook.  Of course I had to give a shout-out to him.  Happy birthday, Iain!

Start Young, Never Go Hungry

He gets it from you, you know.

I’m not so sure about that!

Why’s that?

Believe it or not, his dad was teaching him how to make breakfast when he was all of seven years old.  Showed him how to turn on the oven for the hash browns, start the bacon, set the timer for the first side of the hash browns, flip when it was time, and scramble the eggs.

Wow.  But awful young, no?

Not really. I think it’s a skill parents should encourage from a young age.  Too many are afraid of the mess. It’s unfortunate, really.

  1. I loved this story. I learned to cook breakfast from my Daddy, too. It was a 2 am, as he had to be to work so early. But we would fry eggs, bacon, or pancakes together. Then, he would tuck me back into bed for a nap until Mom woke. Ohhh, how I miss those days. I was only about 5-7 at the time, but those were the best years…when Daddy was still alive and before his stroke.

  2. This is lovely and it is very important to teach children how to look after themselves. My children are 4 and 2 and I believe that they are fascinated with cooking and love joining in. I have really enjoyed reading this post, it shows a bit about your family life. Wonderful. Thank you for sharing, it has raised the importance for cooking and supporting children to learn.
