I am a "40 something" (at least for another year!), mother of three, married (28 years) lady! I really love to cook and my family really loves to eat. It was a match made in heaven! My husband and son are both avid hunter/fishermen, so the freezer is always busting at the seams with venison, goose, rabbit and fish. Even our youngest daughter put in for a turkey permit this year. Two of our kids are in college, one at CMU and one at MSU, with the baby starting CMU in the fall. I cannot stand the thought of an empty nest!!!! Who will eat this bounty? How will I cook for only two? I may have to take my stove on the road! I love to grocery shop! I would rather grocery shop than clothes shop any day of the week. I love feeding all of our family and friends. It is so flattering that these people would rather come to my house for dinner than go out! I especially love to make soup. It feels like liquid love to me!
