"Cooking is an art and patience a virtue...
Careful shopping, fresh ingredients and
an unhurried approach are nearly all
you need. There is one more thing -- love.
Love for food and love for those you
invite to your table. With a combination
of these things you can be an artist --
not perhaps in the representational style
of a Dutch master, but rather more like
Gauguin, the naive, or Van Gogh, the
impressionist. Plates or pictures of
sunshine taste of happiness and love."
weekending, my favorite part of the week. a time to relax, live, love, just to be. if you'd like to share your weekend either with words, photographs, or both, leave a link to a weekend post in the comments.
This weekend was...
Waking before the sun to run
before the heat reached the
triple digits. Finally overcoming
a runner's block and pushing
forward in my marathon training.
Picking quarts and quarts of blueberries
for the freezer..and a few for
creamy blueberry pies too.
Reorganizing my kitchen [why
did I wait so long?] and spending
hours creating new recipes and
menus with garden fresh vegetables;
especially loving the pumpkin-carrot
soup with hemp seeds I had for lunch.
Sharing a big bowl of popcorn while
watching Bringing Up Baby with the
thirteen year old. I do love his voice
changing laughter! Waking in the
middle of the night to a thunderstorm
and listening to the blessing of
much needed rain. Having all the children
come by with hugs and cards for their Dad.
Grilling venison burgers [them]
and portabella mushrooms [me]
on the grill with homemade fries
for dinner followed by bowls of
vanilla bean ice cream. [and I
ate some too...yum!].
Preparing for two weeks with the
wee one while her Mommy and Daddy
are gone....have I told you how much
I enjoy being a grandparent? I do...
a whole lot!
How was your weekend?
