Food for Thought

"If thou tastest a crust of bread, thou tastest all the stars and all the heavens." -- Robert Browning


I came across this quote yesterday and instantly fell in love. Maybe because I'm a carb-addict. Maybe it was my recent focus on bread making. Maybe it was because I had a batch of bread in the oven at the time. The eloquent words and the mouth-watering aroma combined to leave an indelible impression in my mind. I'll never take a bite of bread fresh-out-of-the-oven again without thinking of this quote. Because, really, is there anything better in "all the heavens" than warm bread on a cold, rainy winter day? Who knew that when I decided to make a dent in the hundreds of pounds of red wheat we have in storage by making our bread this year that I would bring my entire family so much joy? Every member of my family, upon walking in the house yesterday, said excitedly, "You made more bread?!"  Delightful.  Sometimes the simple things matter the most.
