Celebration and Comfort

The final Monday of 2021. The final week of meals to prepare and enjoy as a family for the year. A warm, favored meal calls to the heart with a soothing comfort like none other.

Tonight for my family, a shared recipe used during times of gathering and laughter will meet them. Barbeque, once cooked, will be kept warm by the crock pot. Ready for the moment of enjoyment as we gather round the table. Plenty on hand to feed the bottomless stomachs of our teenage sons.

Monday’s Menu 12.27.21 Recipe

Mom’s BBQ


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoon mustard
  • 2 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 12 ounces ketchup

Directions: Brown the onion, meat, and salt. Drain any excess fat. When browned, add rest of the ingredients. Cover. Turn to simmer.


As we continue to celebrate the gift of redeeming love from our Heavenly Father, we also take comfort in it. Whatever your form of celebration looks like, know that He meets you right where you are. He loves you here and now.

Isaiah 52:9 NRSV – Bible Gateway

Break forth together into singing,
    you ruins of Jerusalem;
for the Lord has comforted his people,
    he has redeemed Jerusalem

As you come to the table for your meal, may calm and comfort meet your stomach and your soul.
