I don't think it's only a man's heart that the stomach leads to. I think anyone who is hungry feels love when they are fed. My heart is warmed, and comforted by the beautiful gifts of food shared with me this week. Faye, Susan, Jen, Christina and Anna - thank you so very much.
It was as if you all peeked into my brain and brought my favorite meals.
Susan's Mexican Corn Chowder and Chicken Salad - so delicious. Susan's cooking is like eating at one of those "ladies who lunch" cafe/brunch places. It's absolutely lovely. I called my mom and told her I was tipping the bowl like cereal milk, my stepdad wants me to make it for him.
Fajitas are something I could eat, each and every week. And okay I actually ate the rice too which is rare for me. But it was really good, so I have to know now how to make Mexican rice?I LOVE peppers,love them, could eat them everyday - mmm comfort food.
Jen - Cheesy meaty pasta (or Lasagna) is a favorite of the kids so long as I don't call it Lasagna which is entirely too exotic sounding I guess. Jen, I think half the casserole was gone before you made it home. You probably could have circled the block and taken your dish.
Christina - BBQ chicken, bread, broccoli and corn on the cob - it was like mom was visiting! It was so good. Do you eat broccoli now? hmmm??? Corey would eat a rock if you put bbq sauce on it so he devoured the chicken. William wasn't sure he recognized a green vegetable until this week.
Anna - Oh my gosh. Okay you guys are going to think I am insane - I am so picky about new foods. I have never had a snickerdoodle. They never looked very good to me. But William had one, shouted how good it was and after smelling it, I tried one. wow. Anna you can make some cookies they were soft and perfect. Perfectly shaped, perfectly baked.
I am heading back up the stairs one last time today to go to bed and I want you to know I will be praying for each and everyone of you and your needs. You really are amazing women. I can't express how blessed I am to be graced with your concern and love.
If my husband were on here he would tell you thank you because he is so worried and so far away. If my mom were on here she would tell you how much comfort she draws knowing that I have such wonderful friends. If I let my kids blog, they would tell you thank you for not having to eat toaster waffles all week while mom rested.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
