For my family it’s turkey for Thanksgiving and ham for Christmas.
I once saw a man … a few days before Christmas … run past me and out the door of a Wichita supermarket, with a store employee hot on his tail. The man dropped a couple of items as he jumped into a car and sped off. The employee told me he had caught the man stealing meat.
I think about that incident every time I buy a big ham for our holiday table. We are blessed.
My wife Shelley is an excellent cook and usually adds her outstanding potato casserole to the menu. She is also good at baking cookies, and her chocolate chip cookies have gained quite a following here at the radio station.
So much of our holiday celebrations are about food, and the gathering of friends and family to enjoy a feast.
I never take good food for granted. From the farm to the table, there are really loving hands and hearts involved.
Our thought for today is from Mark Twain:
“Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.”
