What are you passionate about? What inspires you?
I’m inspired by what other food bloggers write. There are many opinions about what to write and how to write it. One comment I read stated that bloggers should write what they are passionate about; I agree. When I think about what I’m passionate about one thought comes to mind, my family. I know this may sound strange to some people but I get excited about preparing a meal for them. I want them to love the taste of real, whole foods. We do our children a disservice by feeding them processed foods pressed into shapes. How will they know what real food looks and tastes like if that’s all they are exposed to.
Sunday is the day I plan a big family meal. One of the most requested meals is pot roast and noodles. It’s satisfying to see excited faces run to the table and their plates scraped clean at the end of a meal with minimal leftovers. I look forward to the day when my children make these dishes for their families and the tradition continues to the next generation. They will never forget the feeling of affection and contentment we shared over a memorable meal. I know this because it is the example I remember my parents setting.
“A family is a unit composed not only of children, but of men, women, an occasional animal, and the common cold.” Ogden Nash
