The photos she sent through were so different to what I cook that it really got me thinking.
In general dinner for my family is one largish plate of food. From time to time we will have dessert with it. This is the way I grew up eating. I also grew up with parents who were not particularly interested in food, and who only cooked out of a packet. Mum and dad never cooked anything that took more than half an hour to cook (microwaved boil-in-the-bag fish anyone?), and we never really learnt to cook as children. I am in no way am criticising my parents – this was how they grew up too.My husband quite clearly did not pick me for my cooking skills!
Helene on the other hand grew up with a mum who cooked the family very healthy meals, consisting of very little meat and vegetables vegetables vegetables.
The dinner her family had the other night consisted of four smallish separate dishes.
