Simple Gifts Give the Greatest Joy

Thanksgiving is a celebration that marks the beginning of the winter holidays. The day is a feast of warm family love, true friends and laughter, and fantastic, colorful platters and bowls of food, vessels of wine, and memorable festive holiday music.

The holidays bring out many different talents in family and friends, especially in the kitchen where everyone is a master concerning the dessert tray, dressing, sweet potatoes, the main entr?e, and even the gravy. Everyone becomes a chef noting: “The marshmallows on the sweet potatoes need to be crispier”, or “The dressing needs more pepper and the turkey needs more basting”. Even a simple bobble over the table arrangement as to where the candles should be placed and the napkins should lie becomes a glorious partaking of family and friends to make the occasion as stunning and impressive as possible.

Thanksgiving is over now and the countdown to Christmas is begun. It’s at this time of year that giving seems to present itself as an important ritual, especially to those who have less or have nothing at all. Grocery stores have bins where people can offer food for the homeless and shelters prepare meals for those who have no family. This year is a particularly hard year for Americans as our economy is quite shaken. Even offering a can or two of a nutritious staple food can help out any organization helping others.

To add to the wonderful gift of food you opt to drop into a grocery bin or prepare to bring to those who rarely get a festive meal, how about adding a simple yet unique recipe tied around the provisions you’ve chosen. When your gift of food is opened, a wonderful recipe will be supplied as well. The incentive to prepare a simple but appetizing meal will help make the banquet unforgettable and unique. To receive the gift of food is a tremendous blessing. The added gift of how to create a beautiful meal for your loved ones is further sanction, especially for people who don’t typically have the means to create a stunning feast, simple though it may be.

This year, while donating food, please add a recipe to your gift. www.gourmandia.com has hundreds of recipes from which to choose. This simple addition will help create incentive to prepare a delicious meal for those who rarely get one. Who knows! You may become the catalyst for a great future chef by planting the artistic seed of culinary hope!

Happy Holidays!
