|Food for thought|

The thought of a “bucket list” causes some consternation, in that I don’t know when I will have time to make a bucket list, let alone fulfill any such wish list.
I feel I have lived the life of three people already, and though I would desire to “finish strong,” a bucket list for me might seem a bit severe to others. At any rate, besides the obvious challenges of wanting to lose a hundred pounds, grow a full head of hair and be a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars,” my bucket list is quiet simple. Here are some of the wishes:
1. Sleep through the night.
These are just a few things on today’s bucket list. I’m sure if the phone, computer, my boss and the demands of the day were not all sounding at the same time, I could compose another bucket list regarding what my aspirations would be; ”be still” more often, to pray more, fast more, to eradicate drug and alcohol addiction – and then I’d move on to politics and “world peace.” This is not something I can face this morning, however!
Cooking can be therapy for my family! I decided to include some of those recipes that would be on my bucket list to prepare in the foreseeable future. For those who have time to still cook, you may enjoy these as much as we do!
