Life can be so complicated, so crazy, that we often get caught up in the elaborate. But there is joy in the simple things.
Tonight, our family opted for a simple dinner of ham-and-cheese omelettes, potatoes from our garden, peppers and peaches with cream. While I prepared the omelettes, Outdoor Guy joined me in the kitchen to slice and fry the potatoes. I could hear Wyokiddo happily playing in the living room as we worked and chatted. We couldn’t help but run into each other in the tiny kitchen, and each time, Outdoor Guy would take the opportunity to steal a kiss.
I enjoy the challenge of cooking a complex meal, or dinner on the town with my handsome husband on my arm. But nothing beats the quiet camaraderie of my beautiful family, homegrown food and a Wyoming sunset. The preperation and the meal were both food for my soul.
