We are redoing the kitchen and I would like a quote to stencil (or use wallword stickers) to put above the bay window.

Do you know of any quotes that may work?

I'd like something in English. My friend used Bon Appetit.....but I don't really want to use that.

I did find "Brindiamo a la vita" which means a toast to life in Italian, but it still isn't doing it for me.

If anyone could help me with a quote....something about welcome, family, feast, or friendship......something "cozy" like that, I would so appreciate it!

Thanks so much

Do you know the Selkirk Grace?

Some hae meat and canna eat
And some hae nane but want it
But we hae meat and we can eat
And sae the Lord be thankit

This is the one that we have in our Kitchen, i'm not sure if your Christian, but if you are, this one is ideal:


(My Kitchen Prayer

Bless my little kitchen lord.
I love it's every nook.
And bless me as I do my work,
Wash pots and pans and cook.

May the meals that I prepare,
Be seasoned from above.
With thy blessing and thy grace,
But most of all they love.

As we partake of earthly food,
The table thou hast spread.
We'll not forget to thank thee lord,
For all our daily bread.

So bless my little kitchen lord,
And those who enter in.
May they find naught but joy and peace,
And happiness therein.


A quotation that I would put in my kitchen, although it is not related to food or cooking, is this:

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rain fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
- Irish Blessing

Food like a loving touch or a glimpse of divine power has that ability to comfort. norman kolpas

Thou, who canst guide the wandering star
Who calm’st the elemental war
Whose mantle is yon boundless sky
My thoughts, my words, my crimes forgive
And since I soon must cease to live
Instruct me how to die.~Lord Byron
