Worldwide Church, Worldwide Food

amazing food flags originally from here

Growing up, brunch during the Sunday morning session of General Conference was our tradition. A tradition including a ham, pans of homemade cinnamon rolls, raspberries from our garden, granola and yogurt. Needless to say, a tradition I loved.

Then my family moved two time zones east. Now the morning session of General Conference doesn't start for us until noon. And that's just too late for brunch.

In April we started a new family tradition: Worldwide Church, Worldwide Food. I browse the international aisle of the supermarket (or if we're lucky, we get to go to our favorite international market in Chicago before Conference weekend). I stock up on all sorts of food, but heavy on the treats and chocolate! It's a great way to recognize how we belong to a worldwide church and gives us a chance to try foods we normally wouldn't have an excuse to buy. This weekend we'll be noshing on Japanese udon miso soup, Austrian cookies, Korean biscuits, and Mexican juice. Plus we'll be feasting on the word of God, delivered through his messengers. Sounds like the perfect weekend to me!
