Jesus indeed fed the hungry. He did it miraculously with only a few loaves and fishes. It's one of my very favorite bible tellings. Food is such a beautiful metaphor. We need it. We crave it. We love it or hate it. It takes effort to prepare good and beautiful food. It's at the center of our gatherings. I especially look forward to lovely, warm things on cold and blustery days like we're having here in Utah. The temperature dropped, the trees became frozen over with a little snow, and the coats came out of their plastic dry-cleaning wrappers.
I love how a simple, humble supper can warm the coldest little bodies. When you come home from school or work or a busy day of doctor appointments, isn't it wonderful to be able to sit down to some hearty soup and good bread? I think it's the secret of the culinary world---good soup and very good bread. Today I want to share with you one of our family's very favorite recipes. It's actually my very own, created by me, myself, and I. I share it with you for this Christmas time.
