Home Cooking 1

a meal truly "from the heart"

Friday night I experienced one of the best dinners I've ever eaten. Since this board is all about home cooking, I'm sure all of you will appreciate it.

I went down to to Brenham, TX to work & show cutting horses Thursday. The young man, Jorge, who is from Honduras, works for my trainer friend.

After the show on Friday, Jorge surprised me with a dinner of beans, rice, two fried eggs and corn tortillas. I gotta tell you, everything was cooked to perfection and his prayer before dinner really brought me to tears....half was in Spanish, half in English, but he was so thankful for this meal and just thankful for having food. He then offered me everything in his refrigerator.....leche, huevos,....This young man was so kind.

In appreciation, I've already made a pot of soup that will be frozen in indivual servings, and chili will be on the menu tomorrow. I'll head back there on Wednesday.

Rice, Beans, Eggs, how much simpler can it get.....?
