    Default Proud of it - usage

    Dear sir/madam,

    If I need to complete a sentence like "I cooked a dinner for my family. I am ..." Can I write "proud of it" ? Can I use it to refer cooking a dinner for my family?

    I think it's perfectly reasonable to be proud of having cooked a tasty meal for your family (provided it was actually edible, of course!) You can say that you are proud of any accomplishment.
