Yesterday I roasted a chicken. We enjoyed it with roasted vegetables and I decided I could eat roasted vegetables everyday forever. Last night I put what was left of the chicken in the crockpot with a bit of this and a dash of that and woke up to homemade chicken broth this morning. Tonight we had tortilla soup for dinner tonight. I am grateful that I have skills to stretch one meal into a few. I am grateful that I enjoy cooking for our family. There are times when I do not, and those weeks are miserable. Usually it takes just powering through the rut and making one really delicious meal and I'm back in the groove again. I am grateful that I can buy groceries and that my children don't know hunger. I am grateful for the comfort and love that can be shown through a meal. I am grateful for the privilege I have to make meals for my family.
