My Sunday turned out to be ‘Summer Side Salad’ 3 ways.
Looking back a bit - my family raised me up being a pretty regular church attending Roman Catholic. I was even a catechist for 3 years back in high school. For the past few years, religion has taken a break because I’m not sure what I believe in and profession has taken the front seat. Currently the most important has been the process of finding meaning behind life, humanity, etc. and on top of that, myself.
Flipping this a bit - I do know that when I find myself shopping at a produce stand I’m so ecstatic and grateful to see the gifts our ground gives us every day. It is a Mecca of the pure, colorful and fresh ever changing things in this world. The people I find in these market areas usually share the same simple appreciation. It may not be a ‘church’ attendance, but I feel my weekly store travels refresh my gratitude and bring me a sense of peace.

Red Cabbage Slaw
That bowl of purple packs a real punch (recipe via B. Flay) - don’t be fooled by its simplistic look
