Traveler’s Feast

Traveler’s Feast

Recently, grandson Sam, visited Egypt and Tanzania where he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. While there, he texted his mom and asked, “Do you think it would be rude, if when I got back we invited ourselves to Grandma’s house for pot roast?” I think he was ready for some good ole’ down home cooking!

The day after he got home we gathered to feast on pot roast with carrots and potatoes, asparagus, fresh zucchini from the garden, and kale salad. Oh, and a cake made with French vanilla pudding mix. We heard of his travels and viewed his collection of travel pictures. The picture above is the feast we enjoyed together at my house.

Soon he will be headed back for his second year at the Air Force Academy.

  1. This is a beautiful piece about family and gathering together around a meal. My parents are gifted in hosting gatherings much like this story talks about and it creates a space for family unlike anywhere else.
