Food that speaks

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but throw in the preparation and dishes and you’ll have the complete and utter devotion of a woman.

This past Mother’s Day, my daughter served me Crock-Pot Beef Burgundy. She and my son bought the ingredients then she prepared it. Needless to say, it was fabulous. But what was so special about this particular meal was it had been a high school assignment for French class, decades ago, but I never forgot how good it was. You’d think having such a good opinion of it, I would’ve eventually prepared it as an adult, but I never did. I just mentioned it a few times.

I find the best gifts aren’t the costly ones, but those that take a little creativity and some effort. I received such a gift with this meal, the special ingredient being love.
