One Ingredient Makes a Difference


Barbara and I were trying to replicate a recipe for a breakfast sandwich we enjoy at a local restaurant. It seemed we had figured out all the ingredients, having ordered this particular sandwich probably a dozen times over the past five years.

But, every time we tried making it at home, something wasn’t right. It was missing something.

A friend told us the missing ingredient was mayonnaise.

We tried it. He was right. Delicious.

It happened again last night as we made a one-dish meal for dinner. Barbara suggested adding sauteed onions. Perfect.

One ingredient can make a big difference.

A smile. A single kind word. A helpful gesture. A please or thank you. Small things can be transformational, can’t they?
