Teacher and Sous Chef

Warning: Written while hungry.
I was invited over to a friend's house for breakfast and to help put a resume online for his wife, a nurse.
While waiting for breakfast, Bob mentioned he was a picky cook. He was meticulous in the preparation of the food and wanted to make sure every piece of the meal was the best it could be.
If course, I drew a connection. Teachers cook. They cook lessons. How do they do cook? They make their own lessons, beg borrow and steal from other lessons they find in all kinds of places.
Now the question I have is do they do their best in every lesson? Do they take the time to make sure it addresses all the necessary aspects of learning?
Making lessons is cooking. What kind of food are you feeding your students?
