The Real Blessing



If you're hankerin' for some good ass photos of soul food, wander over to Darius' blog! Damn! I caught up with his most recent post and my jaw dropped with salivating anticipation. Pictured to the right is a photo of the fried chicken Darius prepared. Ohmigod! Looks so heavenly! Now I know how Corey felt a few months back when I posted photos of my fried catfish dinner. It's been more 'an a l'il bit since I've taken time to cook like that. Probably won't happen any time soon either.

Since I live by myself, am on Disability income, and still mending my health, cooking has become an extravagance I can't afford. I make do with the bare necessities to survive and that's it. Not even the Holidays (this year) will be filled with my spectacular fare. Money is too tight. Family and friends agreed Thanksgiving and Christmas need not be punctuated with over indulgence. This includes dinner. Damn. Shame really. I love to cook around the Holidays. I love to eat it too, LOL.

But it's all good. As Darius indicated, it's just wonderful enough being surrounded by folk you genuinely care and love you. So even if I have to split a loaf of Wonder Bread and crack open a tube of Cheeze Whiz, I'll still be blessed with the people who care by my side...

So, congrats to Darius on his successful Sunday event. I'm too jealous of you right now (LOL), but happy for your Blessing. Being able to come together, bread bread with one another, and have special times, is the most important thing in this trying and challenging days! Carry on, my brother.

Oh, and next time, send me a plate!!!! Hahaha.

Ian. Wasn't that whole story over on Darius's blog WONDERFUL and inspiring. But a plate of that Smothered Chicken would just take me straight to the outer limits.
