52 Photos Project


This weeks prompt is "Nourish"

After spending all day in my kitchen, 
this puddle of water was left behind 
in one of my pans after rinsing it.
What a gift!
I made a huge pot of Ratatouille using 
fresh local organic summer vegetables.
This makes me happy.
Some say I am a food snob. I am OK with that.
I tend to look the other way and prefer to go hungry 
if bad food is the only thing available.
So I make a choice to participate in "Slow Food" 
when possible
I try to set a happy table, free of the clutter, 
no bills to be paid, hammers, nails and screws, cellphones.
I grew up in a home where we ate in the kitchen, no TV
I still do, and do not own a TV
Matt and I have started The Happy Belly food business
where we participate in the Food Love and focus on healthy fares.
I will be teaching a Gluten-Free Cooking class in June.
We now sell 6 flavors of Happy Belly Hummus!
This post is making me hungry!
The kitchen is the heart beat of the home where families gather, and not only nourish the body, but heart, mind and soul as well.

Love this image of the spoon and heart - priceless! So, didn't know you were a gluten free cook. I'm a gluten free baker by way of celiac. ten years ago it was difficult to prepare GF without it being extremely labor intensive now it is much easier, for one thing I no longer make my own flour, thank you King Arthur.

Thank you so much for your support and for playing along, week 1.

Dear Deb,
I will participate in this project as well. How did you find out about it.
The picture is gorgeous. Love coming from the pot right into the belly. Hmmmmm.
Well, it made me rethink my recent food choices and that I wish to get back into a more alive diet.
Love from Eva

You are inspiring me once again to venture out of my comfort zone. How do you find these wonderful sites? Thanks for visiting my blog. As usual, your picture is stunning!

A gift indeed, what a gorgeous photograph. You have given me something to think about as I often rush; food is on the go or at least has to be conveniently quick. Yet I really enjoy 'slow' meals, taking the time to enjoy food and company. Can't wait to see more of your work on Bella's website x
