Yesterday, Priscilla and I decided to have a much needed girls’ day with just the two of us. It has been a very long time since it was just the two of us, and it was long over due. We decided to pamper ourselves and we both had a manicure and a pedicure. It felt so good, and our nails look beautiful too. This is something I NEVER do, but it was fun.
Because we were out playing, I was not in the kitchen cooking. But it is good to take a break every now and then. Instead of giving you a delicious, mouthwatering recipe, I am going to leave you with some food or thought instead. I think these words are so true and deliciously insightful.
A recipe has no soul. You as the cook must bring soul to the recipe.
~ Thomas Keller, American Chef~
Cooking is the ultimate giving.
~ Jamie Oliver, British Chef ~
All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
~ Charles, M. Schultz, Creator of the Peanuts Series ~
You have to taste culture to understand it.
~ Ashram Proverb ~
You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.
~ Paul Prudhomme, American/Cajun Chef ~
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
~ J.R.R. Tolkien, British Author ~
And last but not least. I leave you with this. All these quotes are great, but I think this simple quote is my favorite of the bunch.
All we need to enjoy good food is a good appetite and an open heart.
~ Author Unknown ~
I think having an open heart is the key to enjoying life and all its experiences. Enjoy all your experiences that life provides and enjoy all of your days. Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
