A couple of weeks ago, I came across a toast that has stuck with me ever since: To the alchemy that turns groceries into meals! (Anonymous)

Of course, the foodie in me reached out and grabbed that thought immediately, pulling it close to my heart as I ruminated on its meaning. It’s so true! There is a special magic in the process that turns raw ingredients into something wonderful–and in the ability to see it before it exists.

This kind of alchemy happens everywhere. It’s present in the house that rises from piles of wood and bricks and stone. You can see it in your computer that was once resin and wires and circuitry. It’s in the evening gown that was once silk and thread beads. Look around you. We make magic every day from bits and pieces of nothing.

What ingredients do you have at your disposal? What will you make with them?
