Isn’t every day Food Day? Shouldn’t it be?
October 24 has recently been declared Food Day, and boy am I planning to celebrate!
I love food… Love to cook it… Love to eat it… Love to share it… (Did you know that calories shared with girlfriends don’t count?!) Although I don’t much love cleaning up after I cook it… But I suppose that comes with the territory. Ah well. The dishwasher comes in handy to help with that part.
So many memories are built around food! Think of all the celebration dinners, family meals, parties, carry-ins, all the gatherings that happen around food. So much of our lives is centered around food, but we rarely think about the farmers who make all this food possible for us or the veterinarians who work so hard to maintain farm animal health and welfare. They are the unsung heroes of the food chain.
Today, as I celebrate Food Day, I am going to fire up my grill, cook up some great steaks and bake some potatoes from our garden. I am also going to give my husband/farmer/veterinarian a big hug, and thank him for all he does to provide safe, healthy, abundant food for our family, and for so many other families.
