In October, we look to the kitchen and cooking. “Boys cook. Girls don’t.” One of my son’s preschool classmates told me that and I loved it! My boys both love baking because they know that if they bake it, they can eat it, but there is a lot more for them to learn. Whether you are in a time of privation like the Great Depression (when this mural was painted) or a time of plenty (like the picture shows), knowing how to cook enables you to make food just the way you like it.
