We are at the lake this weekend. All of us – including our son, daughter, son-in-law, and our two dogs. We haven’t all been here together in a long time. The weather is as nice as we’ve seen for a while. We came without a chore list. So far we have rested, read, slept, watched TV, talked, taken a drive, sat in the sun, and eaten.
When we arrived last night I looked in my cookbook for the quiche recipe I always use when we are here.
It’s not in the printed part of the book (although I should have submitted it when our Sunday School class made this church cookbook a few years ago). It is one of the “extras” I keep in a pocket in the back.
These are recipes I have used here. They are also recipes of dishes and beverages that people have brought when they came here to visit.
They speak of good times together, friendships solidified, lazy summer days, fireside chats, and love. They are recipes for delicious food and drink, as well as for family bonding times, and for relationships with friends – the best life has to offer.
God is great, God is good,
Let us thank Him for our food –
and the blessings of good times together!
