You read my mind Suzanne as I've wondered about your background and, with such wide-ranging skills, you could do just about anything. Why not change the question to "What do I want to do?" -- writing excluded for the time being -- and work from that perspective?

When our spirit hungers

The precocious toddler’s interest in talking to her mother grew in insistence as the gathered group settled in for an hour of silent prayer. Shushing didn’t work, so the mother led her child into an adjoining room where she would still be part of the sanctuary, but sound would be dampened. Despite the closed door and heavy glass walls, the child’s fervent desire to speak with her mother was still audible.
I said a prayer for the patient mother determined to stay, and for the child who was either tired or hungry or impatient for Mom’s undivided attention. And then tried to bring my wandering thoughts back to prayer. I had come to Adoration with my own pressing need for answers.

Now that the vegetables have arrived, I have two reactions: 1) Wow! This is so exciting! Look at these beautiful vegetables, I’m going to be so healthy. 2) Yikes! What am I going to do with four bags of greens?









For the next sixteen weeks, I want to share my culinary adventures as I cook my way through my CSA box each week. Even if you don’t subscribe to the CSA share, you’ll enjoy these recipes which focus on our summer bounty. I hope you’ll also be inspired to try more vegetable-centered meals. Now, back to those four bags of greens! 


This week’s recipe polished off two of the bags immediately. You can make this easy and tasty recipe for two or four people, just increase the amount of greens and th…
