This & That

A bit of this and a bit of that…

Spending time by the sea and indulging in calamari & chips. I do love the ocean!

Frequenting the Farmers’ Market. I love cooking with fresh produce.

Currently I’m particularly enamored with Sapphire potatoes with their gorgeous, delicious purple flesh. I’ve been roasting them with red delight and also cream delight potatoes, enjoying the tri coloured medley with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt and cracked pepper.

I’ve also been splashing some balsamic vinegar over a combination of vegetables. Carrots, potatoes, zucchini and red onions tossed in a mix of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, seasoned with sea salt and cracked pepper and placed straight in the oven to roast. I love the aroma that fills the kitchen!

Spinach and mushroom quiche is another favourite that I’ve cooked quite a few times lately.

Asparagus and Broccolini with a knob of butter, sea salt and cracked pepper and a few minutes in the microwave… delish.

So it seems lately that it’s been all about food, food, food and more food! Somewhat true but not entirely. When I transferred the photos from my camera to my computer they were all mainly of food and produce!

I have been crocheting, naturally! I have new patterns to write up and tutorials to share, photos to snap, so stay tuned.

I’ve also been browsing and meditating on passages from Stephen Covey’s book… Daily Reflections for Highly Effective People. I’ve come to realize that I actually have 3 copies, yes 3, of his famous book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People in my home. Guess what, I am not one of the millions that have read it. Three copies sitting in my bookshelf, unread. Have you read it? I do intend to read it entirely from start to finish very soon, but I’m beginning with quick, digestible passages from his daily reflections book to begin.

Today’s passage > > >

When a person has access to both the intuitive, creative, and visual right brain and the analytical, logical, verbal left brain, then the whole brain is working. There is psychic synergy taking place in our own head. And this tool is best suited to the reality of what life is, because life is not just logical – it is also emotional.

– Stephen R. Covey

  1. Don’t forget to sharpen the saw (so says Mr Covey) – makes cutting the firewood easier.
