United Tables of America
My dearest friends–
If there is one thing that can unite a polarized America, it’s having a meal together.
Look, we all need to eat in between watching CNN or Fox News.
And wherever you stand (or sit) politically at the table, is really none of my business.
The most important thing in the midst of any type of chaos that might be in the world or your life is remembering who you are.
Sounds like a line from a movie, doesn’t it? Ring any bells?
It’s Lion King—sorry for the spoiler.
But it’s so true—who are you isn’t based on chaos but rather, based on your own character, your integrity and your resilience.
We all get hit with “stuff” from time to time. We get depressed, we get knocked out of our seats and sometimes even thrown under the bus.
There’s the family—they need you. Whatever your family looks like—you still have responsibilities that aren’t going to go away.
There’s still a meal to be prepared.
There’s still people that need to be fed.
There’s still souls that need to be nurtured.
So with that in mind, I invite you to bring your family back to the dinner table.
This simple act will revolutionize your family and give you the peace you deserve.
Feed them—heart, body and soul.
PS—Garlic Lime Chicken is one of my most famous recipes—for good reason. Try it out on your family tonight—they’ll LOVE it!
