A Prayer Before Eating

Over Thanksgiving, we went to see my mother.

As I have shared, my mother is an outstanding cook. 

A few years ago, she took a baking class with my other sister and learned how to make artesian sourdough bread. 

The place gave her a sourdough starter and she has been nurturing it ever since. A real labor of love.

The picture below is of my mother’s sour dough bread with a blessing for eating right and for the right reasons.

 Our thoughts are very powerful and set our intentions. I believe it is helpful to pray not only while cooking but before and after eating too. 

I hope that this will serve as a nice addition to the blog.

    Prayer is now being copied in illuminated script by my art student daughter to frame in the kitchen. Thank you – it is perfect.
