Lake Tahoe - Sand Harbor, NVImage via Wikipedia

Today I cancelled my trip to Midway, Utah. The job prospects and house prospects I mentioned in yesterday's post made me realize where my heart is, and therefore a trip to Midway was no longer necessary.

I am now going to focus my job hunt on the Lake Tahoe region with Denver as a back-up. I feel a sense of relief now that I've made the decision.

The turning point for me came last week while I was listening to Steering by Starlight, by Martha Beck, while driving around town. She mentioned an exercise where you are to imagine for ten minutes your perfect life. When I did the exercise I saw myself driving my beloved baby Hummer through Lake Tahoe and pulling into the driveway of my house. Everything about this scene filled me with joy and a feeling of being home.

It's interesting that I don't get the same feeling about Evergreen, Colorado despite the fact that I spent the month of September there so that experience was much more recent. Although I did have a wonderful time there, which is why it remains in consideration.

What does this mean? I don't know, I'm going to sit back and relax and see if the rest of the pieces will fall into place. I've re-calibrated my job search engines to reflect these changes, I've contacted another real estate agent in Tahoe. So let's see what comes up next.

Collard Greens with White Beans - A Vegetarian Take on a Classic

Could a vegetarian version of collard greens ever compete with the traditional goodness of collard greens cooked with a smoked ham hock?

I was skeptical until I made this recipe. It is every bit as delicious. Taking the place of the ham hock is the rind of parmesan or other hard cheese. I keep a small plastic bag of cheese rinds in the freezer, they are the perfect flavor enhancer of stocks and soups, and now collard greens.

Similar recipes call for dried beans, but sine I live 10,400 feet above sea level, dried beans are always a challenge unless I'm using a pressure cooker. For this recipe, I opted for canned beans and am just as happy as can be.

This recipe is quick, easy, delicious, and so rich and satisfying a bowlful with a slice of garlicky olive oil toasted bread makes the perfect week night dinner. It is also a satisfying side dish.

Let's get cooking!

Open to the Spirit - Book Review

Open to the Sprit is like reading a letter from a friend. McKnight writes a very accessible introduction to the Holy Spirit and its role in our spiritual life. McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk. A terrific book for those seeking an introduction to a relationship with the Holy Spirit.

Dinner with Julia

What do Ina Garten and Martha Stewart have in common? Both women describe cooking through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking when they were young as foundation to learning to cook.
Julia Child is an inspiration to most home cooks of a certain age. I found her so inspiring that at one time, I had all of her cookbooks, including a first edition of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and had read almost every biography written about her, My Life in France, being my favorite. And yet! I confess that until this week, my cooking adventures in Mastering were limited to her omelet recipe, her iconic recipes for onion soup and Beef Bourguignon.
When the Food52 Cookbook Club on Facebook chose Mastering as its cookbook for the month, I jumped at the chance to finally use Julia’s first cookbook for its intended purpose.
I decided to start with something easy, a poached egg. I purchased the best organic eggs I could afford, read the recipe several times, and began. After I’d tur…
