What makes a Meal?
Typically, meals are consistent occasions within a person’s day that nourish, satisfy, and sustain our lives. More though, meals often come with joy, celebration, conversation, reconciliation, laughter, pleasure, and a whole host of other emotions.
It’s been in the prep, eating, and clean up of a meal where I have had some of the best and most profound moments of my life. I got married around a meal; my wife and I ate a meal shortly after our first son was born; we’ve celebrated all of our kids birthdays during meals; I witnessed the announcement of my nephew during a meal, and too many others to name now.
Enjoy, relish, become inspired, motivated, and at the very least, salivate over some of these scrumptious looking meals. Not only do I think they’re scrumptious (what, they were :)), but the look on my friends’ and families’ faces said so too.
