I have often written about how grateful I am for this or that food, because really, who wouldn’t be? Food is awesome! (If it’s made right, and sometimes failures even taste good even when they look extremely questionable.) Food is more than just fuel for our bodies to continue moving, it’s an experience that most of humanity has turned into something to be treasured with all of the recipes and different dishes for different occasions.
But there is something different when you are eating because of the work of your own hands and the hands of your family.
Eggs laid and gathered, bottled jars of preserves laid down from the previous fall and the bacon sizzling from when we had pigs.
I am grateful for a glorious breakfast.
