Depending on where in the world you live, you may be watching hopefully for the first morel mushrooms of the season, or you may be celebrating the bounty of the end of the growing season. Food often makes an appearance in the writings of our bloggers. Sometimes the food is part of the story, and sometimes it’s a metaphor for the point of the story. This week we tour a few of our bloggers’ posts that mention food in some way.
April Fiet, writing in At the Table with April Fiet, reflects on the tradition of May baskets and offers five reasons why they should make a comeback. “This is the MAY that the Lord has made… let us rejoice and be glad in it!”
“I can cook!” declares Mary Beth Butler in her blog Terrapin Station. “This is not cordon bleu stuff. But it is creative act. It is nourishment. It is nurturance. I arise a little more every day.”
In A Church for Starving Artists, Jan Edmiston shares a secret ingredient in her cooking and in her work as a church leader. “To try to see people through the eyes of Christ adds something delicious and surprising. Today, this is my secret ingredient for getting through this life.”
Susannah DeBenedetto talks about a Christmas gift of tea that she received. In her blog, Tea and Theology, she explains why some flavors of tea have been nearly consumed while others are brand new in the box. “You won’t be surprised to know that the Decaffeinated Breakfast Tea and Green Tea with Jasmine remain to be sampled.”
In Las Puertas Abiertas de Par en Par, Rosa describes a blessing of blackberries growing wild, discovered in the middle of a day of hard work. “You cannot be connected to the earth, to the wilderness that is easier to see when you live out in the country like I do, without having to acknowledge that there is a wildness to this life of ours we don’t get to choose.”
