Are You Your Family's Resident Foodie?


Have you stocked your shelves with all ingredients and made your menu lists?

Do you have garden vegetables in the freezer, alongside blueberries that you picked in season?

Do you sign up to bring food to community events and bake sales?

In other words, are you the resident foodie for your family?

Most families have one—the one who makes cookies, the one who brings muffins when someone is sick, the one who is the keeper of the family recipes. To find out if it’s you, answer these questions—and wear your designation with pride!

  1. Do you have a stash of bread in the freezer, all ready to make homemade stuffing? – 1 point (double points if it’s not just any bread—it’s the ends of homemade loaves or rolls).
  2. Do you have a baggie full of ripe banana in the freezer, ready to make banana bread for one of those relaxed holiday mornings? – 2 points
  3. Are you planning to give a cookbook for a holiday gift? – 3 points (triple points if you put it together yourself from family recipes)
  4. Are you planning to hand make any ornaments this year OR do food gifts for friends and neighbors? – 4 points

Total possible points: 10, or with bonus points, 17
