I’m so glad my kids like my cooking. I don’t try to be too fancy–and I need to keep within all the restraints of time, energy, interest (mine, not theirs) and finances. I’m limited and can’t always pull off the grand plans I dream up. Let me introduce you to a new concept: Not Gourmet, but Mom-met.
Not Gordon Ramsay
I may not be good enough to thrill Gordon Ramsey’s taste buds, but I get 5 Michelin stars with my family. I’m glad to be free from the pressure of his shows. I would never thrive under it. I’m sure he is excellent in his chef-ing, and I wouldn’t mind feasting on his heaven-on-a-plate masterpieces.
Sometimes I get out of the pattern of old favorites and get a little gourmet. At least, my kids think it is fancy. The Ham Wrapped Eggs fits the bill for them. Maybe that gives you a clue what fancy is for them. No a sprig of something on top or a swirl of a fancy sauce is necessary.
It was the Ham Wrapped Eggs that started our new word: Mom-met. And soon to follow was the phrase “It’s not gourmet, it’s mom-met.” After that, my teenager piped in, with perfect timing, “Even better.”
Here are a few of my Mom-met favorites:

What about you?
