Gratitude In Food (#194)

If you’ve been following along, it’s no secret I’m a huge fan of good cooking. I often find gratitude in food like peanut butter and buffalo chicken for more reasons than just how they taste. These foods and flavors are closely associated with fond memories and important people.

This is also bigger than just me. There are millions of people around the world who aren’t sure what their next meal is or when it will come. I’m lucky I have so much access to food and clean cooking. There are people far worse off than I am and that’s something I’m mindful of whenever eating. I’m grateful I got to spend the day cooking good food with good company.

Happy 4th, America!
