Cook – Just Because

Today’s gift of nourishment is to cook, just because. We say ‘just because’ mostly because we don’t want this to be another chore or stress on your to-do list. Today, choose to stay in and make a comfort meal, like this lasagna, or this hearty soup. Better yet, double the recipe and pass it on, to fill someone else’s refrigerators for the coming week ahead.

Find one recipe you love, or one you’ve been meaning to try, and double it. Then, pass it on and let the gift of cooking continue.

I love this idea!

Be Spontaneous

The best life is an adventurous one, so today’s gift of nourishment is the gift of spontaneity. To be a moment-maker, live for the opportunity and the adventure. Find some way today to be spontaneous. It doesn’t have to be an over-the-top grand adventure, like skydiving or sailing the Seven Seas. Adventure is all around, and it can actually be really simple. Look around your every day. Listen to what’s happening in the community. Then make your plans and get out and live.

My husband and I took a hike to Tumulo Falls a few weeks ago. It was a gorgeous day, with a light dusting of snow.

We always meet new people, and stop off at a “new to us” place in town for coffee or a treat. (Above: Haggis, 14 years old this year, our Cairn Terrier. Learning to tolerate our new Whoodle puppy, Alder.)

But then, we know we have to get off the trail before dark.

With the shorter days, we’ve been timing our hikes, getting home right around dinnertime.

These easy ingredients make a delicious dinner: Brats, pears, sweet potatoes, and Brussels sprouts.

We sometimes use two pans to ensure that all of the ingredients are spread out and cooked thoroughly.

It also makes a delicious meal when you double the recipe and share with a neighbor or a friend this winter season. (Here are some other recipes to double up: Pesto Chicken Thighs Sheet Pan Dinner or this Roasted Lemon Salmon with Green Beans, keeping a pan for you, and a pan to share!)

Cook – just because!
