Tuesday's Treasures ~ A Tradition Continues

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

My mother was a Home Economics teacher (do they even have those now?) and she taught kids how to bake, plan menus, make budgets, balance a checkbook and other life skills. I always loved the French bread she made and still make it for my family and friends.

Last Christmas I showed my two older granddaughters how to make French bread and yesterday afternoon I helped Beautiful Beckett make her first two loves!

 

She loves to bake and she is the one who wants to open a bakery called Miss Queen Bees. At 8 years old she is getting a good start on learning some skills. Love that the tradition from my mother is being carried on with her great-grandkids!

Hi Dorie,

I have had the opportunity to bake banana bread with Tristan.  There is something special about baking with your grandchildren.  Glad to see that Beckett (BB) loves it.

Hi Dorie- I am having so much fun watching BB (and HH) grow into wonderful young people. And I love that the tradition is being handed down to the next generation.  We plan on doing some Christmas baking with Mini-me soon.

Hello Dorie - I like the wondering you did in this post about home economics and classes that were once basics in school.  While I understand the "world" has changed and continues to evolve, I can't help but think that certain skills still seem important.  I digress. . .

Hi Dorie... if Beckett keeps up with her baking, she'll be a total star once she opens her bakery shop... and if I lived near it, I'd certainly be patronizing it.

She would get along well with my nephew, Kyler since he also likes to cook and bake.

I had to throw that in the post Michael Jacobs as there are so many necessary skills that are not being developed and taught. I hear from so many students in college..they don't know how to plan what they are eating or don't even think about a budget! And can't figure out where there money went!
