Hi everyone! I don’t know where you live, but where I live , there has been snow for the last couple of days, including the first day of Spring. Crazy weather. Crazy enough to make us take a step back and realize how much we appreciate when things go according to plan, like warm weather and flowers coming up as April approaches. You know how we humans like predictability.
Sometimes, however, it may be necessary for Mother nature or even for us to shake things up, even if it makes people feel uncomfortable, like being outspoken about what we believe in.
“I think sometimes it takes a little bit of being crazy to make a difference in this world, and that’s what you do.”
Although Steven Tyler said this to James Durbin on American Idol last night about his risk taking performances and appearance, it applies to all aspects of life, including health.
Please stand up for what you believe in, what you know in your heart is best for your family, your friends and community, whether it be for health or anything else. Take risks in your kitchen and everywhere else.
You might go against the grain, but if you don’t do it, who will?
You might not change your world in a a day but you may be heard, seen and experienced. You might plant a seed. You might inspire others to take action .
For all your efforts to change your world for the better, I applaud you and give you a virtual standing ovation with a frying pan held high! I also want to offer the gift of this easy recipe to help you deal with strawberries, especially expensive organic strawberries ( which you really should buy because strawberries retain a lot of pesticides because of their pourous skin) that are past their prime. You can’t just throw them away once they get a little mushy!! Enjoy!
1 1/2 cups strawberries chopped
3-4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp corn starch
stir over low heat for about 20 minutes until thickened. Cool and pour over ice cream or serve like a jam. Yum.
