This busy family cooks almost every night of the week, and so can you with these simple and delicious meals.
Time in the kitchen together is top priority for this busy Georgia family. Dunwoody resident Sue Spann recalls happy memories of cooking with her mother and grandmother when she was growing up. “Almost every family picture we have is of us in the kitchen,” says Sue, as she reminisces with her mother, Marion. “That’s how much we love to cook,” Sue adds.
Now her 16-year-old daughter, Sophie, is learning the important life lesson of cooking and eating well. “Mom and I go to the
grocery store together on weekends,” explains Sophie. “We cook during the week, and I usually bring leftovers to school for
lunch.” One of Sue’s parenting philosophies is to cook together and always taste new things. “Kids are more willing to try
any type of food if they’ve helped prepare it,” she says.
Simply spread the chicken mixture just below the center of each tortilla, and fold the left and right sides of the tortillas while rolling up. Then place the burritos, seam-side down, onto a hot griddle or skillet, and brown on each side for a crispy, melt-in-your-mouth main dish.
Cooking together can help open up the lines of communication between parents and kids. It also inspires an appreciation for new tastes.
Eating fish daily, such as omega-3-rich halibut, can reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack by more than 50%. Just two
