Lucky mom.......

First of all I need to state that I am a lucky mom for many, many reasons, but mainly four big reasons: Mackenzie, Cameron, Grayson and Hayden (five counting Brittany!)!!!! But for this post, I am going to share just one of the many, many other reasons. Since Cameron has moved home, he has been cooking a few meals for us! He has always shown an interest in cooking and he is quite good!

He especially enjoys Asian foods. On this particular evening he made a delicious pork stir fry dish. It was amazing!

To the chopped pork steak he added mixed vegetables, mushrooms, onions, sunflower seeds and peanuts. He made a special teriyaki sauce from scratch. He laid this on a bed of rice. It was really, really good! What a treat it is for me to have someone cook dinner!!!

On another night he made a baked chicken in teriyaki sauce along with Rice-A-Roni and broccoli. It was very delicious and very healthy!Thank you Cameron for cooking dinner!

I couldn't resist showing these pictures as well. This is an example of some of the antics that go on around our house. Grayson is sneaking up on Cameron, as he is cooking, wielding a knife!

Cameron doesn't look to frightened though does he!

Oh no! It looks like he got him! But some how, Cam doesn't look like he's in pain!

He just laughs it off. Believe me when I say that as soon as he had his hands free after the dinner, he got even on old Grayson!

It's all in good fun. No boys were hurt in the making of this blog post!!!!

I am feeling so, so much better! I know the Lord has helped me so much. Sometime soon I will be posting more about what I've been going through, but for now I just want to thank all of you for your sweet, sweet prayers, they are appreciated so much! I am still very, very busy with so many different activities, so it is hard to keep up with my blogging, but my spirits have lifted so much. I know I owe several of you out there visits to your blog and as soon as I get some free time I promise I'll swing by to say hello. The Lord is so faithful and good!

Happy Tuesday!

Hi Sharon,

Cameron's pork dish does look yummy. I love Asian foods. It is really nice that you have someone to help you prepare the meals. I cook most meals for my family, but my daughters usually do the clean up. That in itself is a big help!

Glad you're feeling better. Have a wonderful day

Sharon, you ARE a very lucky mom! It looks like you have a wonderful family and great boys! How awesome to have Cameron cooking some meals and the pictures of your boys playin' around in the kitchen are priceless. Oh how I love those times with my kids.

Maybe if WE'RE lucky, Cameron will give you his Teriyaki sauce recipe, as well as his other recipes, for you to post on your blog. :)

How sweet of Cameron to cook for you guys! Looks like he did a great job!

Sondra said...

You might have a chef in the making! His food looks great. Austin is into baking and I hope he will become a pastry chef one day :)
My boys are full of those crazy antics too. It just keeps things fun around here.
Glad to know that you are feeling some what better.

Hi Sharon!
I'm glad that you're feeling better. Yes, the Lord IS good! :o) I think it's so neat that your son loves to cook. My (almost 21) yr. old can make Ramen noodles & that's it! He's never shown an interest in cooking, that's for sure. Cameron's meals look delicious. Two thumbs up! I'm *guessing* he had GREAT teachers! :o)

Have a great day.

That is so awesome that your son likes to cook! My hubby loves to cook too and what a treat that is!

I am so tired of not being able to cook in my own kitchen. Things just seem to be moving slow but I know that we will get it together soon. Until then can we borrow chef?
