AB BBQ Sauce
When you love to cook, you think that you have a super power, that all things can be soothed or cured with food. This week the food world was reminded that some wounds run deeper than a chocolate cake’s capability.
As we take a moment this week to celebrate our Fathers for all of their super powers – grilling, mowing, fixing – remember the attributes that they show us every day are the most important: love, kindness, compassion, support. Use these not only when you’re cooking, but in your daily life. It will nourish those around you, and just might soothe a wound that you can’t even see.
Happy Father’s Day!
