Bread & Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table with Recipes
Good bread and wine are two things I have grown to love over the years. As I become older, I appreciate more and more the simplicity of gathering around the table with friends or family to break bread and drink wine. My roommate Nikki, who knows how much I adore spending time in the kitchen, gave me this book for my birthday and I finally had the time to read it over Spring Break. In the book, Shauna recalls why her favorite place among all others is being around a table with those she loves. She shares stories—both high and low—about her life and how many things were healed, celebrated and cherished while sitting around the table. She talks about her struggles with pregnancy, her European travels with family, being an author on book tours, and how at the end of the day, all she craves is sharing a meal with people around the table. Some of my favorite parts include her stories about the cooking club she is in with several of her best friends.
My mom's dad is Irish, a storyteller and twinkling-eyed joker, and her mom is German, a rose gardener and meticulous baker. They met in the third grade in Vicksburg, Michigan. My grandpa's family moved away at the end of that school year, but my grandparents reconnected at the end of high school, and my grandpa insists he remembered her beautiful face all those years. They were married just before my grandpa joined the navy, and my mom, their first child, was born at Pearl Harbor. Neither one of them grew up in religious homes, but when they married, they decided that religion was important and that they wanted to join a church. They visited all sorts of churches before settling at Lake Center Bible Church.
