Joey is in his second year of the culinary program at tech school. He is loving it, and I am loving the fact that he always wants to cook for me. I mean , seriously, what mom doesn’t want a break and have someone ELSE cook. Last month he learned how to make a quiche recipe and he has been obsessed with them. He wants to make them all the time. He loves that the whole concept of a quiche is to use up left over ingredients that are laying around the kitchen. This is the same child that made his Grandmother a corn chip cereal in milk. Thank god he is a better chef now than when he was 6.
