Every day I make lunch for myself. In years past, I could skip lunch and stay focused on my projects and eat later or munch on something while I worked. But these days, as I’m older and diabetic, I need a light lunch. I used to hate to take the time because I enjoy working on my projects, being creative, and doing something well, especially if it is to help others or a team.
And I like to eat well-presented meals–prepared by chefs. I love the aroma and colors and taking careful bites to consider exactly what spices garnered each flavor.
Like at Sun Mountain Lodge:
Or Sante in Spokane:
Or even Applebee’s
I appreciate that someone created a meal for our dining pleasure, and then cleans up! I may have learned this from my mom. One of her refrigerator magnets reads: My favorite dinner is ‘reservations’!
But, the important thing is to take those delicious meals and transfer them to home:
So in my doodle, you see a vase, glass of milk, an apple, and a small bowl of carrots with my toasted cheese sandwich, a mundane lunch but set up in dishes, nicely presented. Well, my art doesn’t do it justice.
Even in the mundane, appreciate the gift.
Each bite a bit of
sunshine; flavors fulfilling
the earth’s harvest gifts.
