Table at meal time

This week's theme is 'a table at meal time'. Anyone who knows me well, is aware of my love of food and especially of my love for meals as a time to connect with those who I treasure.  I honestly thought this theme was my dream come true. I imagined beautiful pictures of soul food, of plates and plates of luscious treats, of a spirited family occasion and an aura of sheer nourishment. However, reality struck. I am running on empty this week and am having to dig deep to tackle each  day. I haven't had the time or enthusiasm to cook or be sociable. And so I surrendered to Nutella this evening. It just had to be.

If you surrender completely to the moments as they pass, you love more richly those moments.

  3. This made me smile! I too have had the nutella jar out ... too hot, too busy, too tired to cook. Ah, sweet hazelnut comfort!
