Therapy and Cooking





Today after church I came home and spent time with my bride before she decided to take a nap. While the kids were sleeping, I decided to watch the movie, "Julie & Julia", starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams....It's a cute movie about the famous Julia Child and this women, Julie Powell, living in Queens, N.Y. who decides to cook her way through Julia Child's famous cook book in a year. 524 recipes in 365 days.....

Long story short, I liked it and it got me thinking about how therapeutic cooking has been for me over the years. When the kids and Adrienne woke up, I asked Adrienne if she wanted me to make my dad's famous pizza for dinner (famous in the Gibson family.)

So, I did. I haven't made his pizza recipe in years and for an hour I just thought about my dad. It was great therapy for me and a great time with my family.

Adrienne took some pictures.
