I am extremely boring in the kitchen. I never fry anything.
Why? Because hot oil is…HOT.
And I’m a scaredy cat.
Just yesterday, my teen said “I have to make Churros for spanish class.”
I couldn’t tell her I was scared of oil, so I straightened my shoulders and nodded.
If she knows I’m scared of oil, she’ll threaten to fry me the next time she wants to borrow the car.
I was stunned when she proceeded to make the dough by herself. This kid can COOK!
Like any responsible adult afraid of oil, I made her do the frying.
When I saw the finished product,
I volunteered to do the tasting.
That’s the beauty of having kids, isn’t it?
They push you out of your comfort zone
…and make you Churros.
