Gratituesday: Cornucopia


Tonight while my husband and I were getting dinner ready to put on the table (and munching on the food as we went), we were both struck by the variety. And Matt said, “THIS is a regular cornucopia. It should be your Gratituesday post tonight.”

So if our cornucopia is my Gratituesday post, that would make this a Graticopia…a CornuGratitiduh…a

Yeah, okay never mind. That doesn’t work. 

Anyway, having an incredible variety of food is seriously something to be grateful for. Many people all over the world are just happy to have one thing to eat…and they eat it day after day after day…hopefully.

But for our one meal tonight…we had chicken fried steak strips, potatoes, gravy, steamed broccoli and cauliflower, chocolate milkshakes and yogurt with honey oat crunch cereal.  One meal.  (And yes, I veered off of our planned menu just a bit…I sometimes do.)  (And no, we didn’t over-eat like it sounds like we did with all that food…there were just little bits of each of the above, so our portions were small.)  Oh, and then since Daddy was home for the evening, we played Family Cranium and ate a special treat of popcorn and Easy Butterscotch Bars.

So much variety. So many great choices. So much food. 

We are spoiled. We are blessed. 

We can not take this for granted.

    I’d love to get a copy of this. I am ordering from Azure Standard specifically to get some bulk organic ingredients to try stuff from your site! I’m a new reader and I love your recipes, keep up the good work.

    So great that you appreciate your blessings! I think in this country it is easy to take for granted things like having a lot of food to eat because we just expect it, yet there are places in the world where they never have enough to eat!

    I am grateful that my husband works so hard so that I can stay home with my boys. I’m grateful that he cares about my day and will ask me about it. I’m grateful that he supports the way I parent when he’s not here and how he supports my choice in potty training (day two) and will call me to see how it’s going. I’m so VERY blessed to have him in my life!

    thanks for hosting such a wonderful reminder of all God’s gifts!

    I am grateful for being able to order on line! I got my first Tropical Traditions order today and it is so neat to try things that I would probably never look for in a store!

    I have recently started to take more control of what my family is eating in the way of processed junk and am looking for recipe ideas! Love your blog!

    I joined in Gratituesday with my blog post because I am thankful no one was hurt when the glass door on my toaster oven shattered & I am also thankful for some “girl talk” stuff! :)

    Such a wonderful Tuesday. Here in Western Washington the weather is really showing up in time for Spring. So many things to be grateful for.

    What an ingenious title! I love it!

    God has blessed me so much the past three years, through my struggle with Crohn’s Disease. He gave me strength to persevere on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (see my blog for my diet journey), and He also gave me a deeper faith in Him. I wouldn’t change the last three years for anything.
