Another gem from Shorpy. How absorbed she looks! She's probably thinking about all the other things she has to do to get dinner ready, when hubby is going to get home, when she should start the other dishes, how she can use those leftovers in the fridge... I know that look. Do you have that look sometimes?

Keeping the home fires burning includes cooking for your man and anticipating his return home after a hard day out in the not so easy world. I have that look every day I cook and am grateful for it !
