This post is all about one of our favorite things–food! Oh yum.
I made some bread once. It turned out pretty good. It probably would have been awesome except that when I added the sugar, I forgot that I was halfing the recipe….oops. It’s good for French toast though!
We had pork and homemade mashed potatoes and gravy. I really like homemade mashed potatoes and gravy. Mmm.
Adam made a pork roast and vegetables in the crock pot one Sunday. It was delicious.
Adam has been teaching me about Filipino food. One of our favorites is adobo. Usually we make pork adobo.
Mom Huggard sent us a box of peaches. Psych! It was actually a package with other stuff we left in Utah.
There’s a cool Asian grocery store and marketplace near our apartment. We went there one Saturday, and Adam went wild. (Not really. He was just really excited to see so much Asian food in one location!) We bought this at the Asian market–a dragonfruit. It’s lightly-sweetened goodness.
Another time we had chicken salad. It was a success.
Our most recent favorite–homemade pizza. Yummmmmmmm. Here’s our regular pizza…
…and here’s our dessert pizza. They were super tasty.
Mmmmmmmmm. Isn’t food so great? I’m glad we don’t just have to take some pill every day that takes care of all the nutrients we need within a 24-hour period. Boring! Food is so exciting and colorful, and there are billions of kinds and combinations you can come up with! I think we can learn a lot from food–a lot about life. I don’t know, I’ve definitely learned a thing or two about life by relating it to food.
The best thing I’ve learned is this–Heavenly Father is the Master Chef and we’re like the ingredients. Sometimes a recipe may seem like it’s not going to work out, or maybe we really don’t want to be mixed with other ingredients (vinegar, for one), but it’s for the best, we can learn to like the other ingredients, and if we just trust the Master Chef, the recipe turns out far better than we could have imagined. He can make a lot more out of our lives that we can; we just need to trust Him.

I am so glad you posted about food- on FAST SUNDAY! Bahaha. Luckily I have eaten so I didn’t feel faint looking at the delicious food. I’m glad you are making awesome meals. remind me to drop in when you are living in Wyview 🙂
You are SO CUTE! I love the last paragraph. Very insightful. Overall a very tasty post! (P.S. I’ve never seen dragonfruit before. It looks very exotic.) I’m glad you’re having fun with food. Sometimes I’d like to go the easy route with a 24-hour food pill because it takes so much planning and preparation to make a great meal, but that’s just another lesson about life I can learn from foods. Life would indeed be boring without a lot of tasty challenges to nourish and make us happy. 🙂
You’re making me hungry. Looks so delicious. You two must watch Babette’s Feast–one of the truly great movies I’ve seen and all about food.
I like your skirt. 😀
Also, in regards to the last paragraph, do you think that’s why I like experimental cooking so much?
Also, what the HECK is dragonfruit?
Oh Sarah! You’re awesome! I need to gain your love for cooking. . . seriously. I loved looking at your delicious food which is actually VERY odd because lately ANY food makes me queasy, but not yours! Haha! I loved the way you applied cooking to life. Maybe once I can start cooking again, I should look at it like that and try again to have a love for it. Thanks for your example! Love ya tons!
