We went on an overnight trekking trip to the mountains yesterday very early in the morning and came back a couple of hours ago very happy but also very tired, wet (except the kid, we managed to keep him dry) and very very hungry.
We did not want to go out but did not have much food at home so Helga quickly made some awesome potato mash with loads of butter and some black pepper and some good old tomato salad. Oh man, it was so good. Why are simple things so bloody good? I think we in the Western world have almost forgotten the art of eating when we are hungry not when we are bored. The food tastes so much better when you are properly hungry and the feeling of gratitude is automatic and comes naturally.
The kid loved it so much, he had a second helping and then some more and fell asleep very happy. So here is wisdom from me again gang: starve your kids, it makes them happy.
