Oranges for Children, a festive foods rewind

This special recipe marks the end of a series of re-posted recipes. We in this household have plenty. And currently we want for nothing. We have a simple style of enjoying life that is enriching to our souls and to our health. In these posts, I wanted to show that the foods cooked everyday are in fact festive, especially when served to those you love. 

Please Lord,
bless the food before us, 
the family beside us,
and the love between us,
Amen

And now..........

During the next few days, I will share some delicious recipes that are perfect for the upcoming holiday gatherings that may occur at your home with family and friends. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

This recipe originally posted September 4, 2011.

I could not resist this special recipe. This is from much more than a cookbook. This book could also have been titled " How I worked very hard and cooked up a great life, full of wonder and memories."

I found this jewel of a book, out thrifting one day. I was drawn to it immediately, and wanted to own it and the lessons of life woven into each chapter. One could assert that these lessons if you will were actually disguised within the chapters. After each chapter story, arranged through the years, there are recipes to match the adventure.

This recipe touched my heart.


Oranges for Children
adapted from:
Take Big Bites, Chapter 14, set in the year 2002

Step 1:

Buy a bag of oranges.

Step 2:

Give them to children, that do not have oranges.



Such a simple recipe.

  1. I like this, too. We get too caught up in fancy or expensive or "perfect" gifts, when something like an orange or walnuts were once appreciated as gifts.
