I thought about doing this prompt without my "our daily bread" dish, but in the end, I just could not do it. I found this dish in a local antiques shop a few years ago. It is apparently from the 1880's, and it's crackled glaze shows every one of those years. The opposite side of the dish says "give us this day." As soon as I spied it in the shop, I knew it had to come home with me, if only for the photo prop value. ;) Oh, and the little hand-painted bird dish is one of a pair I found at my favorite thrift store.
I don't eat bread these days. Or pasta, or cake, cookies, muffins, etc. I'm pretty much gluten-free. And sugar-free as well. Last January, I came across the Wheat Belly blog, and decided to give it a try. It's been great for me. I don't replace wheat with gluten-free products. Instead, I eat more vegetables and fruits. I've lost around 30lbs. and I just feel so much better. The surprising part is that I used to LOVE bread and pasta. I honestly don't crave them anymore. This year, my husband decided to go semi-gluten-free. He's still eating the occasional piece of rye bread. (I'm hoping to wean him of that completely. Don't tell him I said so.) ;)
I've been loving your interpretations of the word prompts so far. It's so much fun to see all the different ways a single word can be celebrated. Here are the word prompts for the remainder of April:
April 11: sky
April 18: blue
April 25: tree
