If you couldn’t tell we are such foodies here at Lil’Suburban Homestead…..true we continue to strive to eat healthier, reduce sodium and fat and make better choices but nevertheless at the end of a long hard-working day we want to see a delicious plate full of good unprocessed or minimally processed whole foods that make the long day feel like a thing of the past.
We make a great effort to eat as a family, break out the wine glasses, or put flowers on the table and to make dinner time a time of day when everyone can unwind, relax, and share about their lives with each other. Often we will play music in the background but not the television the television is off and cell phones are not brought to the table unless you are taking pictures of the meal ((I’m guilty of this as you all know).
It’s the little things that can make a dinner special……candles on the table, blue mason jars to drink out of, just those finishing touches…..I find people will oooh and aah when they come to the table but most of all they like to feel special!
What does the word feast mean to you? Well I looked it up in the free dictionary online and this is what it says:
I hope you enjoy it as much as I have for me this book is on our reference shelf it got me through some hard times when I didn’t think it was possible with such a little amount of money to make things special for my family….”Oh boy was I wrong!” Tracey McBride in my opinion not only has the gift of encouragement but she made things seem possible to me……at a time when not much did and not only were we struggling financially but I was battling Thyroid Cancer and didn’t even know it at the time. Sometimes Angels do come to us in all sorts of different forms and ways and I think this was how I received help from an Angel during a dark time….I still have her book all dog-eared with notes in the column it meant so much to me.
