A Moment

While Awake

It is difficult

   and tiresome

Lying so still

    watching my mind

Awake

   counting backwards

One hundred to one

   and remaining alert

Long after I’m done

A sure sign of spring…

Fresh asparagus from the farmers’ market.

A sure sign of spring!!

Sauté onion and celery in a splash of olive oil in a large pan

Steam remaining vegetables

Cook pasta as you like it

Add vegetables into the pan with the onion and celery. Then add in the pasta and stir it all together and until well mixed.  Start with half the pasta and add in more as needed; I like more sauce and less pasta.

It.  Is.  Good.

Serves two or three or four, depending depending on hunger factor!

Upon a Window Pane

Dinner

You get the idea!

Pretty Carrots!

Simple.  Quick.  Tastes good!  I cut up two carrots.  Sprinkled with seasoning — I used Mrs. Dash Original Blend seasoning.  I also sprinkled on a little stevia (SweetLeaf Organic Stevia Sweetener)….probably less than 1/4 of an ounce.  You could roast this; this time I put it in the microwave for about three to five minutes.  Done. 

Bread

Bread from McKenzie’ Bakery in Kalamazoo. Pane di como. It is good.
