Prompt 6: Many of our fondest memories are associated with food. Describe a memorable experience that took place while preparing or eating food.
One of the things I didn’t realize about having kids was how eating would become a luxury. Actually sitting and not getting up and eating the food at it’s intended temperature is rare.
I love breakfast. It’s my favorite meal of the day. What I look forward to when I go to bed at night. Before children, I’d leisurely sip my coffee while eating my scrambled eggs at a normal pace, flipping through the newspaper.
Now, before I’ve had even a whiff of coffee I’m helping Kate into Ariel panties – no, wait, Belle panties – no, actually Hello Kitty panties while my coffee turns icy cold and my toast gets soggy.
So, on our trip to Sedona, I took my breakfast time seriously. Dan and I gave ourselves plenty of time to slowly sip our coffee and took our time savoring delicious omelets. While I loved the Grand Canyon and kissing giraffes and just soaking up time together on top of the red rocks, I loved those quiet, just the two of us with time to talk breakfasts.
