Table Graces

I've been working on putting together a cookbook for my family. My relatives are sending in their recipes, but I've been trying to come up with some appropriate quotes for the little blank spaces that will invariably occur at the bottoms of pages, or between recipes. After searching the net for appropriate food-related quotes without much luck, I came across 2 or 3 traditional table graces in a magazine. That's the very thing I needed! So now, I'm surfing the net (with much better results) for short little table prayers. Here is where I found some:

For food and drink and happy days
Accept our gratitude and praise.
In serving others, Lord may we,
Express our deepest thanks to thee. Amen.
