Shelved under Just For Fun, My Family

My daughters attended summer cooking lessons at The Maya Kitchen.

It was a fun experience for them to learn basic cooking lessons and meet new friends.

A Trip to the Middle East meal

For the older daughter, she learned a variety of food preparation consisting of rice, beef kebabs, churros and caramel/coffee flan for the theme: A Trip to the Middle East.

Some of what they cooked has recipes posted here in my food blog.

Here Comes the Sun is the daughter’s guitar piece yesterday for the Music Third Trimester test.

It really is a wonder how technology has helped hone raw talents even without having formal lessons with a teacher. My youngest daughter’s fascination with guitar playing has come a long way from just mere strumming to plucking.
