And on Tuesdays, we bake.
A delicious aroma of baked banana bread and blueberry muffins fills my kitchen this morning. The oven door is left open as the warm air swirls around me - just like my memories. And once again, my favorite recipe book has been wiped clean of floured fingers.
This recipe book, though. It has seen me through the early days of marriage; school day treats; comfort meals for friends; and so much more.
The best recipe book is one that is stained, ear-marked, and with penciled notes written in the margins.
The best recipe book is a treasured collection of comfort foods and sweet life tips shared from generation to generation.
The best recipe book is one that fills your heart with memories that leak from your eyes, creating more stains on the worn pages.
The best recipe book is one that celebrates all the happy days of life while providing comfort on the not-so-happy days.
So, today I bake. And I remember. And I smile. And I am comforted.
