Recipe to my heart..
A quick note to say my heart melted this morning!
Today was my first Saturday ever getting to be the chef at Samaritan/Cobblestone soup kitchen/cafe.
There were so many awesome volunteers there to help! I got to make all my family recipes of meatloaf, cheesy potato casserole, sweet corn, and cinnamon/brown sugar carrots.
We kept getting requests from one table for more of the potatoes, but since I was working in the kitchen I didn't get to see who they were for we just kept dishing them.
A little while later a woman and her grandson came to the door of the kitchen... "can we speak to the chef, please?"
Everyone pointed to me. "how can I help you guys?"
The little boy (just a tad older than my son) smiled up at me with his missing toothy grin and said "can I have your recipe?"
If I had any doubt that my time was meant to be spent there today -- it vanished with this request.
I sat for a while with the grandma and boy. We talked about cooking, life, and our community. My day was spent well. Thank you Lord for this opportunity.
