There's a Lid for Every Pot

Celia Rivenbark is wonderful, Wilmington,NC-based writer whose column appears every Sunday in the Raleigh News and Observer. She's the author of Bless Your Heart, Tramp; You Can't Drink All Day if You Don't Start in the Morning; and Don't Dress Your Six Year-Old Like a Skank (tips on Southern Etiquette).

Just from the titles of the books  you can see why she'd be great. If you're scrambling for Christmas presents for friends you should check out Celia's work.

The other day she used a phrase that has stuck with me. She said an aunt of hers had noted that, "there's a lid for every pot," meaning that there is a match for everyone.

I think that works on a variety of levels whether it's people, cars, jobs, haircuts, books, TV programs (ain't that the truth), places to live, sports positions, hobbies or seasons.

So often we don't end up with the lid we expected on our pot, but as long as if fits, that's the deal, now isn't it?

In the last couple of years I've been fortunate enough to find a couple of lids that fit me. Luck had a lot to do with it, but I was also actively open to finding the lid and was willing to try different lids.

Believe me, if you find the lid that fits you can flat-out do some cookin'!

Which pot in your life do you need to find a lid for?
