I am the appointed cook in the family and I have not been cooking much lately.

I like to cook ... sometimes ... but not all the time.

It has been a busy time and I have had many reasons for not cooking.

Last weekend I had a garage sale. That was the last reason that I wasn't cooking. It takes so many hours to dig out stuff, price, and place items in a garage sale. I know, I should have cooked, too. Proverbs 31 lady would have ... for sure!!!

I am married to a man who does not cook ... not even a steak on the grill! That is not fair, mind you! He won't hardly eat if I am not here to put the food on his plate and carry it to the table, setting it right in front of him.

I've lived with him a long time, and I have taught him that this is okay. I am really okay with it when I am here. The problem is that when I am away, he will not eat and then he blames me for his lack of nutrition.

I am going to be gone for several days. He is going to need to feed himself. I really think my little break in cooking could save his life.

Two nights ago, he made himself some eggs. I went to Sonic.

Last night he chopped some garbanzo beans, used all the honey mustard we had in the fridge, and mixed all that together with a lot of sauerkraut. He put the mixture on toast and topped it with two eggs and dill pickles.

I was soooo proud of him. However, I didn't let him make me any or give me a bite! He thought it was so good that he made himself seconds. I still passed on his offer to share.

I think he might survive the days when I am out of town. Maybe, guess it depends on what he mixes up!

We always bless the food! It is a very important part of eating. Blessed food is best, especially if it is Scotty food or Sonic!

" ... And He took the five loaves and two fish, and looking up into heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes." Matthew 14:19b
