GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
It happens all the time; much to my husband's chagrin, really. But I don't care; I do it anyway because it makes me so incredibly happy! So there, Ker.
Okay, okay, before you go imagining some horrendous scenario, I am talking about the fact that I cook and bake foods for my family and friends all the time that they love --- but that I do not actually consume. #moreissuesthanreadersdigest
Look, I'm a vegetarian and well, pretty much even a vegan except for that I eat lots and lots of egg whites, yo. Yet this doesn't stop me from making beef, pork and/or chicken dishes for my fam every night that we don't hit Chick-fil-A or Chipotle, you dig?
Don't get me wrong, I take a teeny tiny little taste of everything I make; just to make sure it's copasetic. This I learned the hard way after nearly poisoning my family by serving wedding soup that contained (unbeknownst to me because I hadn't tasted it) a can of spoiled broth. #easterdinnerfromhell
Either way, I no longer use canned anything in any of my recipes (broth from scratch, only way to go) --and I always, always, always try just a hair's width of everything I make, bake, cook or create.
And yes, I will hand out the most fabulous wonderful awesome treats tonight...none of which I will ingest, BTW. Except the roasted punkin' seeds, natch.
But the bottom line is this: I'm all about the givin'.
Whether it's baking cookies for a friend's son's graduation party or preparing an Easter feast to beat the band or selecting the extra big size candy bars for trick-or-treaters -- it makes me genuinely happy to feed others. And, as I hope this little daily exercise proves, not just their tummies, Capsice?
Happy Halloween and happy everyday to all! Hugs from your old pal PK...now THOSE I will indulge in everyday of the week and twice on Sunday, yo.
See Mt 11:25 R. Alleluia, alleluia. Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel Lk 13:18-21 Jesus said, "What is the Kingdom of God like? To what can I compare it? It is like a mustard seed that a man took and planted in the garden. When it was fully grown, it became a large bush and the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches." Again he said, "To what shall I compare the Kingdom of God? It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of wheat flour until the whole batch of dough was leavened."
