So, I encourage you to treat yourself and support our local businesses and restaurants. My great-grandmother used to say that she was happiest when food was on the table, friends and family were over and everyone was eating and enjoying the meal. She truly loved family and having big meals together was something everyone loved to do especially at our summer beach cottage. Whether it was corn on the cob, her famous meatloaf, or apple crisp, we all used to smile at the fact that every single bite was made with love.
The great poet Virginia Woolfe once said — “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well.”
