This month's challenge will be announced on Thursday and I can't stinking wait.
It is a good one.
But until then I wanted to wrap up October's challenge.
In the middle of my-pets-heads-are-falling-off week, I knew that I needed a quiet night in the kitchen.
Jason knew that I needed a quiet night in the kitchen.
When life gets crazy and I get crazy I need to cook or bake.
If he comes home from work and I am baking a random batch of cookies, he knows that it has been one of THOSE days.
So he put the girls to bed and took care of Shane while I got myself together.
Honestly, I was the most blessed by it.
The measuring, chopping, stirring, even the cleaning up after, calms me.
(I made the trusty standbys Chicken Spaghetti and Toffee Crack.)
Knowing that throwing together ingredients can be a blessing, surprise, and treat to someone else is one of my favorite things.
It doesn't have to be difficult. It doesn't have to be fancy. It doesn't have to be planned. It just needs to be from your heart.
In fact a sweet friend sent us dinner from across the country right after our car accident. It was like a huge hug in a pizza box and exactly what this shaken up family needed.
Did you make a meal or bring a treat to someone?
Tell me about it. I love to hear happy stories.
