Trifecta Week 66: Nana’s Kitchen

I like this week’s Trifecta Challenge. Don’t get me wrong, I actually like them all. Maybe because it’s Monday and we spent a lovely day eating with friends after church yesterday, or maybe it was the beautiful morning sky, but something about this week’s prompt simply resonated.

DOCTOR (noun)
1

a: an eminent theologian declared a sound expounder of doctrine by the Roman Catholic Church —called also doctor of the church
b: a learned or authoritative teacher
c: a person who has earned one of the highest academic degrees (as a PhD) conferred by a university
d: a person awarded an honorary doctorate (as an LLD or Litt D) by a college or university
2
a: a person skilled or specializing in healing arts; especially:one (as a physician, dentist, or veterinarian) who holds an advanced degree and is licensed to practice
b: medicine man
I decided to go for a simple 33-word piece I call “Nana’s Kitchen:”

Nana’s kitchen always smelled like country living at its best; no store-bought fake food here. Apple pies, pear tarts, blackberry jam, Hoppin’ John: she used everything from her garden to doctor each recipe.

        1. Very true! I wish I’d paid attention to my grandmother’s recipes when I was younger; however, most of the time it was “a dash” of this and “some” of that…doctoring at its best!

  1. Bring back the days of old, when cooking in the kitchen meant family gathering around the tables chopping and helping, now it’s a case of “It’s in the freezer – microwave for 10 minutes”.

    1. That is so true, Jenny! I spent Saturday cooking for a church event and I thought about that…messy kitchen, real food smells, we are missing that!

    1. Thank you, Kelly! Feel free to invite some Trifectans over to help you–it seems there are a few of us, yearning to get back in the kitchen! 🙂

  2. After reading some of these, I caught my error-verb rather than noun and had to do a slight re-write. This was helpful to me and good to boot.
