Home Cooked Meals

Being an empty nester is a sort of challenge. With just two of us, it is tempting to just eat out most of the time; but then I realize that something is really missing when I don't prepare a good meal and enjoy it at home. This last week, we have had our daughter and her boys come to stay and so I stocked the fridge and starting cooking again. The stove seemed surprised as I stirred it from a deep sleep.

It certainly helped that there is a new Harmon's grocery store in Farmington that I visited for the first time and immediately had a renewed desire to cook again. Can you say, FABULOUS? Who would have thought a grocery store could offer a shopping high. I wandered around the store in awe and they finally said, "Lady, are you alright?"

Now we will just see how long this love affair with the grocery store lasts along with a renewed commitment to cook. Even though I have had the opportunity to eat in some fabulous restaurants, I have to say that there is just the greatest satisfaction in being able to cook and eat at home. Being a homemaker is really one of the greatest blessings. There is no place like home.

I totally agree! Since I just had the baby a couple weeks ago I haven't been able to do much and I can't wait to be able to cook and clean again.. I'm so glad you started posting more again, I love your posts, miss you!
