This past Sunday, Broadstreeter Jim Wilson spoke about the way in which food is a sacrament. He said,
I think bread, good bread, is an everyday miracle. And stew. And corn on the cob. And a tomato with mozzarella, basil and some olive oil and balsamic vinegar. And apple pie. And milkshakes on a middle school mission trip.
That got me thinking about what foods, for me, are everyday miracles. A meal I recently had immediately came to mind. I bought something called Crispy Yellow Chicken from a food truck called Fetty’s Street Food.
The dish was a revelation – a perfect balance of textures and flavors with just the right amount of heat. Next week, I will try – and fail – to recreate it. Other foods that are everyday miracles for me:
- Sushi rolls
- Grilled artichokes
- Locally grown honey crisp apples
- Garlic Asiago bread from Dan the Baker
- Fried plantains
My list goes on and on. How can I not give thanks to God after eating fried plantains?
What are some foods that are everyday miracles for you?
