Thanksgiving Day in America

John O’Donohue was an Irish poet and philosopher. He was interviewed by Krista Tippett on NPR/American Public Media. I heard part of the interview this morning. Listening to him was inspiring so I’ve posted the link to the podcast on my Twitter feed:  https://twitter.com/designhouse9. You can also find it in the right hand sidebar.

Have a beautiful and bountiful day today.

Goodbye to September, hello to October. Have a wonderful Monday!

This is my second food photo this week and it’s unusual for me to post food photos. I’ve been the recipient of home-grown vegetables this week and I can’t resist the brilliant colors and the beauty of this food. My own basil plants are growing like weeds. Many of us use our homes for cooking and eating. This is the perfect time of year to cook, making the most of the summer harvest. Bon appétit!

A medley of zucchini, red pepper, garlic, slivered almonds, fresh basil, Parmesan cheese, sea salt and pepper.

A friend gave me this tomato from her garden. I love tomatoes. This was a feast for both the eyes and the palate.  It’s not everyday I get a green tomato; I loved the color as much as the taste.
