The aroma of sautéed onions percolated through the apartment. Son came home from the office. As soon as he entered through the front door, he asked, “Mama, what’s cooking? It smells great”.

My first response was nothing, it’s just onions which I changed to meat, and rice. I wasn’t finished with the onions yet, and other ingredients were to be added.

He didn’t believe that getting  the onions brown could smell so wonderful, he removed the lid to look inside the pot. Satisfied he sat on a chair to pull off his shoes, and socks, put on his slippers, and went off to his room.

I have been teaching him how to cook. He has learnt the basics. Hopefully he will be able to  do something for himself, if I am not there.
