Good Eating Day

Kathryn and Qavah have days that food just doesn't taste good to them.  They have days that their appetite is next to nothing, and I have learned not to force food on them.  Usually that phase passes and they are ravenously hungry for a couple of days after that.  Today was one of those days.  They had hot oatmeal and homemade applesauce for breakfast, hummus wraps for lunch, and roast beef with gravy over mashed potatoes and greens for dinner.  Kathryn is now taking pancreatic enzymes with meals and it seems to be helping her digest her food.  Today was a good day, with good food, good music, and an afternoon Christmas movie.  At the end of the day, a box was delivered and it was filled with beautiful Michigan apples from Aunt Marcia and Uncle Les!  We had one more snack of delicious sliced apples before turning out the kitchen light.  We are grateful for good days like this one.  The blessing of good food fills the soul as well as the tummy.

The Clean Plater

Some singers sing of ladies' eyes,
And some of ladies lips,
Refined ones praise their ladylike ways,
And coarse ones hymn their hips.
The Oxford Book of English Verse
Is lush with lyrics tender;
A poet, I guess, is more or less
Preoccupied with gender.
Yet I, though custom call me crude,
Prefer to sing in praise of food.
Yes, food,
Just any old kind of food. Ogden Nash
