SANCTUARY IN THE KITCHEN

I'm afraid that if Moses were to come back on Sunday mornings he would be very unhappy. He'd find me in the kitchen, not in the sanctuary. But, for me, the kitchen is one of my sanctuaries and what comes out of the oven or the pot isn't work, it's worship. At least for me. To take what the Creator/ress has given, ingrediants and imagiination, and you end up with miracles. Little miracles, granted. But, miracles none the less.

A good basic, crunchy granola. With old fashioned oats, almonds, honey and other goodies.

Banana oat bran muffins. These are an experiment. I was going to do an actual apple oat bran muffins. But, I bought more bananas and we didn't really need to. So I switched to bananas. I'll try the others later.

I'm with you...the kitchen is my favorite room and cooking is my recreation. I like to do everything by hand, too. No fancy appliances around here. It does feel like a spiritual journey, especially when I am in full-macrobiotic mode and serving the many-course vegetarian meals that my little one and I enjoy so much. Can't wait for cooler weather so I can begin cooking in earnest again!

"It isn't work, it's worship."  That's how I feel about working in my garden.  Universe willing, I'll get to do that again someday...  Lisa  :-]
