Rolling with the punches.

A few weeks back, a fun event on the farm was scheduled to take place in 72 hours, and the super-cool chef I had lined up was forced to cancel.  Bummer.  Luckily, an equally exciting chef signed-on, who also had to cancel with 48 hours to go.  Sigh…

Food that fills the soul.

Most people cook.  Some people cook well, others really well.  And a very few folks cook in a way that fills up our soul, leaving our belly content and our mind relaxed.  Everything feels balanced and good.  Simple, yet perfect.  They make it look and feel easy.  Those cooks give a true gift through the act of feeding.  They share their art, their soul, and in turn, we feel their knowledge and relax, knowing that someone else carried the responsibility of our nourishment.  We may not even consciously know this is happening – things just taste delicious, but if we stay quiet and feel, it is.  Recently, John and I were blessed with such a meal.

I caaaan’t WAIT!

On November 11, 2010, I’ll be boarding an airplane for Philadelphia with a pat-pat for the plane and a prayer for the pilot before jockeying down the narrow aisles and settling in with my sack lunch and abundant food-related reading materials. I’m absolutely certain I’ll be excited, and I’m just as certain that my mom will have a similar routine beginning in Atlanta. Because… Mom and I will be attending to the 2010 Weston A. Price Conference, and you should come, too!!! Imagine three days of non-stop discussion about nutrient-dense foods! Including, tips of how to incorporate these foods into our everyday lives. Discussions lead by top-experts on topics like fertility, cancer and heart disease, all with solutions that make sense and shine a beacon towards joy & authentic prosperity. Rows of vendors offering samples of things like Kombucha, Wild Salmon and Fermented Cod Liver Oil. Maybe you’ll purchase a “Who’s Your Farmer?” t-shirt, while chatting with fellow conference goer who undoubtedly cares about the health of our food chain and our next generation. We went last year for 1 day, and we will be there this year for the whole conference! Yippee!

Grass-fed butter and little tutus

My sister-in-law is pregnant. She is so cute. Big belly. Big happy. Big love. And in honor of her big belly, I took a trip to her city of Chicago strategically planned around the Weston A. Price Foundation conference and Megan’s baby shower. Mom made the trip to join in on all of the above, and great fun was had by all.
