Must be since I am in San Francisco walking The Fancy Food Show that my mind is centered on food. My thoughts these past days have been on homecooked food and what a special gift that it makes. In our fast-paced often manner free world, giving and receiving something homemade can be one of the most thoughtful gifts. Yesterday when I was walking Bailey before I headed to the airport I ran into a gentleman from our building holding a lidded skillet that he was taking to a friend of his in the building across the street who was not feeling well. The gesture made my day like I am sure it did the lucky recipient. Never underestimate the powerful meaning of love/good manners/loveliness of the gift of soul enriching food.
