It's true, there is something completely satisfying about making a meal from things you've grown/made/found. I love summer meals from the garden. Not to mention the surprising sweetness of freshly picked corn or beets, and the incomparable garden tomato, I relish the knowledge that I stuck a tiny seed in the dirt and it turned into food. Even in the middle of winter, when the fresh stuff isn't available, how great is it to cook up some beets or beans that you put in jars, to dip chips in salsa you chopped up, or eat a pork roast you sliced out of a hunk of pig. I guess it's fulfilling to know you can meet a basic human need for yourself and your family, to know where each part of your meal came from, and to have had a big part in the process.
