We live quite a distance from our son & his wife and don’t get to see them as much as we’d like. So, one of the things my daughter-in-law recently did which built up our relationship is to share with me new recipes that they had tried and liked. Both she and our son really enjoy cooking on the weekends when they can do so in a relaxed atmosphere and wind down from the week’s busyness. They had given us a cookbook for Christmas and so could even direct us to the page number of the recommendations. We are planning on sharing the Acorn Squash Bisque with friends this weekend since we found it simple to make and delicious and reported this to Juliana (DIL). We’ll add to it Szechuan Chicken in Lettuce Bundles, another recipe in that same cookbook – Healthy Cooking for Two.
Food does tend to bring people together, doesn’t it? So, if you’re looking for something to share with your MIL or DIL, you might try recipes. It’s working for us!
