Recent Food Around Here


Here is what we’ve been eating lately. It is more of the same, really, but we’ve been trying to amp up the quantity.  It takes time to make all this, which is why they call it “slow food” I suppose. There are a couple restaurant meals here, but I made the rest. My husband is fond of saying now that he doesn’t see the point of going out to eat when my food is better…

Above you can see the gorgeous scallions he grew in his garden, and in the photos below you can also see some of the pottery I have made pressed into service. It is fun to use!

I hope this post inspires you to take the time and enjoy wonderful, homemade food. It is worth the effort. We have to eat so it might as well be delightful. There is so much sumptuous variety to choose from. I have been experimenting with lots of new flavors which has been both fun and enlightening. It makes cooking a creative outlet too, instead of a chore.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    I really wish you would write a second cookbook! I would buy it for me and at least 4 other people I can think of… With photos like these to show how it looks – wow! (Simple, though, simple) :-)

    I believe the best meals are the really colorful ones that are a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach! Lots of beautiful color here, and I’d expect no less from such an artist! :) Now I’m hungry!!
