Everyone has lots of favorite things, and I to too. One of my favorite things to do is bake homemade bread. I have made a lot of dinner rolls, biscuits, bread, and sweet rolls like cinnamon, orange, and spice rings over the years. I have even made doughnuts and fruit-filled pastries. The smell of baking bread wafting from the oven is unrivaled as the best smell that can come from a kitchen, in my opinion. As a natural health advocate homemade bread, or any bread for that matter, is not exactly on the menu, especially white bread, which I only make around Thanksgiving. I make tasty crescent rolls. A feast is special so you make special dishes, and for me, one of them is rolls.
So when I do make bread, it is a special treat. Oh can I gorge on these babies!! Warm out of the oven with a pat of butter – MMmmm Good.
I made a green bean/potato/ham dish my family has named Hillbilly Soup. It goes wonderfully with homemade wheat rolls. We were all so full!! Feels good to share a meal with family. I hope that parents try to sit down to a home-cooked meal often and talk it up around the supper table. We did and I would not trade those years for nothing, even though it was a ton of work. Four kids can really put away the food! It seemed they never got full! Families are great, I smile every time I see a young family because it reminds me of my family a long time ago. I have TWO grandkids now, WOW, when did that happen?? LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!
How did I get off track? Oh yeah, food, families, and eating. My family is another favorite thing of mine. So is eating:).Well, it is good to be reminded that kids are special people in our lives and sharing our time with them is important, especially around the dinner table.
Love life and breathe deep,
