It just tastes better

 I made a nice spinach salad for dinner last night in my favorite Joseph Sand bowl. For some reason food just tastes better to me when it is prepared in a beautiful piece of hand made pottery.
Since my behavior last week was that of a sloth, and a poorly eating one at that, I'm making up for it this week with no processed foods, no meat, and healthy fruits and veggies. Gerry and I walked last night until dark, and it was so nice out. Walking in our neighborhood is a challenge, since we have mostly vertical surfaces. We live in the "hill" part of Chapel Hill for sure! It was nice to be out walking together, since he hasn't been home hardly any nights since basketball season started.
It's so nice to sit down and have a nice meal, nice glass of wine and it still be light outside and warm! I love this time of year so much. Wesley was born in April and I remember then thinking what a nice time of year it was to be having a new baby. The flowers were just starting to bloom, it was warm but not hot and I would take her for walks at the Arboretum and show her all of the flowers.
I definitely have spring fever right now! Ready to get some basil planted!!!

Beautiful thoughts on pots, life and children. (smiling)

Those are some lush still lifes, Tracy.
I agree about food tasting better served on good pots. When I was still at a day job I always brought a real plate to eat off of. Paper and plastic are sinful for more than one reason, in my opinion.

They taste better, they look better, you feel better about them and the artist that made the piece is happy it's being loved.

Not only the hand made bowl for my salad....I also use the wooden fork and spoon of my grandmothers to toss it. It somehow makes a difference as well. :)

I know Anna, I have certain wooden spoons I use for certain things, and it just makes cooking a better experience.
