 The tallest sunflower I've ever seen is right in the middle of our garden- it must be 12 feet tall! The girth of the stalk is almost 3-inches- it's like a tree!!! #amazingnature  Just harvested. Garlic. Needs to go into the basement for several weeks to cure (dry).
 Crisp-crust pizza with mushrooms, roasted peppers, pancetta, cheese and egg. Oh baby...  Pueblano chilies, roasted, peeled, seeded and stuffed with "quick" refried beans: 1 lg can pinto beans, drained (reserve liquid). Sauté minced yellow onion, garlic, seeded and chopped jalapeño peppers until starting to turn golden. Stir in drained beans. Cook, over medium-low heat, mashing everything together, adding more and more bean liquid (as it evaporates), until beans and vegetables are pretty homogenous and very creamy ( don't be afraid to use all the bean liquidate) -add salt and pepper to taste (beans should be well-seasoned). To assemble: slit peppers on one side and use a paring knife to carefully cut out and remove seed cavity. Fill hollowed peppers with the bean-vegetable mixture and place in greased baking dish and top with shredded cheese (Monterey Jack or- I used Muenster because I didn't have the other). Cover with foil. To bake: bake in a preheated 375f oven, covered, 15 minutes. Uncover and bake until cheese is melted and light golden. SO GOOD!!! #incrediblefood

One more thing about that most important word “change”…

The word “change” has been used a lot lately, especially politically. Treated as “occupied territory” on slanted slogans that insinuate that if a person (or a group) chooses to go in one direction (or not) they’ll then get to either experience or bypass change. As if change was an option, which it’s not. It’s not the actuality of change that should be the subject of debate, rather it’s the way we, as individuals and as a country, choose to take on the responsibility of shaping the quality of change that matters most and is what’s always up for grabs. So,… continue reading

Time to Embrace and Shape the Inevitable; Change

A few weeks ago, as Jon and I got back from our usual morning walk, we looked up at one of our trees and noticed that the leaves on this particular one were, for some reason, the only ones in the neighborhood turning color. Almost to say “I’m ready; let’s get the show on the road!” I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be great to embrace all change that way? This past year, for me, has been riddled with a wide gamut of change; most profound, a year ago August, after an all-of-a-sudden diagnosis and a five month fight,… continue reading
