Today’s Gift… Something New


Today’s trip to the Farmer’s Market was a complete success!  Some days I can go, battle the crowds and come home with nothing.  Today? I battled the crowds and came home with treasures… Blueberries – the first of the season.  Strawberries – the last of the season.    Green beans – always in season.  Zucchini – not sure why I bought this…  Anyway, mission accomplished at the market and on to other Saturday stuff like mowing the lawn and then lunch.

There’s nothing special about my lunches, really.  Sandwich, chips, apple… It just gets it done.  However, coming in the house I smelled something good.  Something new.  Something roasting in the toaster oven.  I peaked through the window and saw one of the zucchinis cut in half lengthwise with some good stuff my wife put together and spread on top.  There it was toasting away.  Smelling good.

Now I’m not the most adventurous eater in the world.  I’m not one to go out of my way to try a new zucchini recipe, for example.  But, I’m here to tell you that roasted zucchini with the crunchy topping, well,  it was good!  I ate the whole thing and enjoyed it! Something new.  Something good! Today’s gift for the taste buds.  What could be next?  Salmon?

This post is the first one under the new blog name, “Walk as Children of Light… Israel 2013 and Beyond.”  The name is something new.  I hope the blogs, when they happen,  like the zucchini, can also be the day’s gift.
