slicing into the watermelon for the going away party, I am confronted with LOVE
I made a snap pea potato salad with lemon and chive olive oil dressing
Famous sour cherry gluten free chocolate brownies
barbequed black eyed peas with spicy, homemade chipotle bbq sauce
smoked cheddar mac and cheese with chicken andouille sausage
cool… watermelon mint salad
sweet peas on a sweet friend’s table for me
“Solstice Bread” my friend created for our dinner, with sundried tomatoes from her garden
grilled sweet potato fries with herbs
the big brook trout – grilled and served with horseradish cream
crown jewel of dessert = gluten free chocolate cake with strawberry whipped cream and homegrown berries
my last meal before all the boxes are packed!
a comfort to have this catch my eye, feeling in between homes and communities
The bonds of friends live on in our hearts – sometimes, especially when we also have a memory of those last foods we prepared or shared together. Today I came across a bright sheaf of photos from the week before I moved from the North Fork Valley. Living to CELEBRATE WHAT IS – I simply have to acknowledge that my memory is alive with how much my community means to me. Wherever I am, you – my community – are with me. Comrades of long ago, you linger, mingling with new friends just met tonight. Just as we lingered, over tables, the stove, our plates and gardens, laughter ringing out – new communities form. Our hearts feeling it. On the planet together with bonds that remain. Carried through these transition times, these revolving, evolving doors of life with love. And good food, of course.
