Have you ever wondered how much food was enough?
I mean, really truly enough?
A few weeks ago I found myself standing over the kitchen sink, trying to think of an idea to write about for my post at The Nourishing Home this month. Mentally, I ran through the contents of the cabinets one at a time, trying to think of a fun, summer recipe that you guys would enjoy.
It was about the time my brain got to cabinet #3 that I realized we had a lot of food.
And by a lot, I meant a couple hundred pounds.
Then last weekend, my dad brought home 200lbs MORE.
Think I’m kidding? Here’s my fridge via Instagram this past Sunday:
See the bare space in the middle and little bit of room at the top? That’s now filled with more berries.
Don’t get me wrong – I’m INCREDIBLY thankful for this blessing and the same he did for us last year, but even as we kept filling the fridge, I couldn’t help but think ahead to what we still needed from Costco or Grocery Outlet this week.
Yes, as 400lbs of food was piled in my kitchen, there was still a feeling that we needed more.
I’m over at The Nourishing home today, humbling bearing my inner thoughts on the topic of “how much food is enough“? I hope you’ll join me and be encouraged.
At the same time, I hope you’re challenged too, to really consider what we already have and to find contentment in it.
I share in the post how many days I think we could go with just eating the food we already have. You’ll have to click over to read it for yourself, but I encourage you to join in the discussion with me:
