I retired 2 1/2 years ago and am really enjoying my life. I golf, hunt, fish and love to cook. I get wonderful reviews on my cooking from husband, kids and neighbors.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy mostly cooking Mexican and Chinese dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents are migrants from the Dust Bowl. We could only eat things that we caught or grew. It was beans and potatoes most of the time. Most things we ate were fried - fried potatoes, fried tomatoes, fried okra, etc.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest triumph is having my grown children tell me that they love my cooking and wish I would write a cook book!
My cooking tragedies
One Christmas I had 22 guests for dinner and forgot to turn the oven on!
