The food of love

Today I cooked dinner for a lovely couple with a new baby. The mother was so grateful and yet all I had done was cook an everyday meal for her.

I often cook a meal for new parents and it is something thay gives me so much pleasure.  Feeding someone is so much more than simply giving them something to eat. For new parents, it is a good (hopefully!) homecooked meal at a time when all their energy and time is taken up with their new baby, and dinner is an after thought.  It  is a simple and easy way of supporting people, that needn’t cost much, and for me, it is an opportunity to give something back.  Friends and people I didn’t know cooked for us when our daughter was born and it was a true blessing.
