My daughter the chef-in-training
October 2nd, 2009 by Nancy

juliachildMy newly minted middle school gal came home from her first trip to the school library last week toting a beauty of a book: “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” by Julia Child et al.  She even admitted she whooped for joy when she stumbled across it on the shelves.


She’s already agreed to cook dinner one night a week.

Again, yay.

Perhaps she’s finding in food what I found (at her age) in fabrics, patterns, and clothing construction: a marvelous creative outlet, not without rules but with plenty of opportunity to improvise along the way.  Follow the rules, and get very satisfactory results; take the rules and bend them, and get creations with your own personal mark.

Stay tuned, I’ll let you know what she comes up with!

Very cool, Nancy! I tell the story of the beginnings of Good Sense Design in some of the parish missions I give as I try to illustrate how a personal vocation unfolds. Thanks for letting me share what’s happening in your life with people around the country. I will start including your website information. Somehow I had misplaced it.
