Just after 9 am yesterday my phone rang. It was the city’s Water Department calling to schedule an appointment to fix my water meter. After we had settled on a date, the caller asked me another question: “Are you the lady that writes the one-pot meal cookbooks?”
“Yes, I am,” I admitted with that astonishment I always have when I am recognized in the grocery store or bank.
She proceeded to tell me about how much she loved my cookbook, especially because her husband had some heart issues and was on a sodium-restricted diet. She appreciated that my recipes include the sodium amounts per serving as it makes it easy for her to cook and calculate his daily sodium intake.
I always love hearing testimonials from people who feel Glorious One-Pot Meals has changed their lives in some way. Often I hear that knowing how to make GOPMs means the family eats at home more often, or they’ve lost weight, or they eat more vegetables now. Tales like these remind me that as challenging as this journey has been to continue over the last thirteen years, it has touched more lives than I realize.
“Thank you,” I told her. “You’ve made my day.”
And I wore a big smile all day.
