Never underestimate the blessing of a good meal.
Paul and I have been working hard in the yard (it’s that season). After mowing and tilling and doing battle with dandelions, it’s lovely to sit down to a hearty meal. It fills your physical hunger and the emotional need to be cared for and nurtured.
If you are like me, you didn’t learn to cook growing up. Not to worry, there are about a bazillion cooking sites and blogs. A simple search will turn up recipes and how-to’s galore. I would encourage y’all to create your own binder of recipes to make shopping and preparing meals easier. (I’ve moved all my recipes to Evernote, so I have access to them anytime, anywhere.)
Now to the contest …
Let’s share from the wealth of our culinary experiences. What blesses your family at mealtime? Your comment can be as simple as sharing your family’s favorite meal or a link to your favorite cooking site. Or you can share your favorite recipe or ideas for making mealtime special. Let’s get creative!
Please share your meal ideas as a comment to this post and on May 30th, I’ll pick a random number and the poster in that spot will win a Loaded Baked Potato Dip Mix (or the dip mix of their choice) from Heavenly Special Teas. (You mix it with 2 cups of sour cream and it makes yummy dip. If you can’t wait, click on the link to order, please put “Lori Byerly” down as the consultant. Thanks so much.)
