F is for Food, The Things Mothers Do

If you don’t know me by now, I cook everyday

On a normal day, I cook 3 meals a day
On a slightly more ambitious day, which is like almost every other day these days
I try to squeeze in a snack for tea, usually something home baked
(which explains my expanding wasitline despite an effort to jog 3 times a week)

And if you don’t know me by now, I am a survival cook, which means I cook because there are mouths to be fed
which is very different from those kind who cook with a passion, fueled by inspiration
which also explains why this space can never be a food blog

Luncheons are welcome at my place but not on weekends because they are my off days and kitchen is closed

And comment like this usually doesn’t go down very well with me
‘oh, you must enjoy cooking to cook everyday / to cook 3 meals a day / to bake so much yummy snacks for your kids’

On a good day, you will get a meek smile
On a bad day, you might get your head chewed off, ok I am exaggerating, but you get the idea

It is the same reason why a mother would wake up 10 times in the night to soothe her crying baby despite being badly sleep deprived

It’s the kind of things mothers do

Sometimes not because they Love-To
Or because they Want-To
But because they Have-To

And it took me a while to come to this



I figured out that since it is a Have-To

Why not make it Fun ?!

*Chirp Chirp*


I am still trying

    Your most memorable creation for me is the one from Cars called Mater.
    I hardly cook except for weekends so I try to put in extra effort when I do like make nice cute pancakes with Sophie. Yes, you’re doing great as a mummy chef for the family. Hope the family appreciates that 🙂

    Lovely food art! I like to cook, but it’s totally a different story if I have to cook 3 meals a day everyday. Even thinking of 3 meals a day everyday is quite tedious! Love the pieces you created. That must have out a smile on the faces of your boys.
