"Someone has said that there is no more beautiful picture than that of a good woman cooking a meal for those she loves." - Gordon B. Hinckley
Last night I made stew with some carrots from our garden. I baked some quick french bread too using this recipe. Oh man, our house smelt so good! I think our homes feel so cozy when we're cooking up good food for our family. It's like heaven on earth! Now, I don't want you to get the idea that I cook up a perfectly healthy meal every night of the week. I don't. There are seriously days when my husband is working really late and my children and I are perfectly happy eating cold cereal for dinner. But I loooove it when I have the time to make a hearty meal for my family. I think our homes feel so warm and inviting when we're cooking for those we love and it's just one more way we can make our homes feel like a haven from the world. I mean, who doesn't love coming home after a long day to a good home cooked meal? :)
P.S. - This is one of my favorite quotes:
Women who make a house a home make a far greater contribution to society than those who command large armies or stand at the head of impressive corporations. - Gordon B. Hinckley
