Garden to Table
We've been working on the Divine Life Kitchen cookbook and recipe cards today. As a break we picked a HUGE bowl of GREENS! Talk about the makings of a mega-salad bowl. There was one surprise carrot in the CommUNITY Garden today. :))
Take a deep breath before you start to prepare food. Get yourself fully in the present moment so you can enjoy all the sensual pleasures of the food.
Let yourself have some freedom in the kitchen. There is no one way to do any dish. I often make little changes each time I make even a tried-and -true dish. Let your taste buds lead you each time. Maybe today you want a little more lemon or you want to toss in fresh herbs from the garden.
Give GRATITUDE with the first bite.
Take a pause. Enjoy every nuisance of the flavors. Give gratitude for the effort of farmers, grocery hands, your own hands, and the planet for giving you this food.
Thank you SOURCE, God. Thank you.
