There is no vessel in which I will not try to plant seeds. Or a seedling. Maybe a bulb. As a reminder that spring is coming, and to give myself a bit of peace of mind, I’ve decided to do some planting this weekend. I’ve yet to decide what this mug will hold. If it stays in the kitchen, it has to hold something edible. We’ll see … I may sip tea from it as I decide its fate.

The design of the mug was inspired by John La Farge and his decoration of Trinity Church in Boston. The geometric pattern is an adaptation of stained glass found on one of the interior doors. The sun was shining bright the day of the photo. The final pattern was translated onto a mug, magnet, and bookmark that can be purchased at the shop at Trinity Church. You can learn more about La Farge and his decoration on one of the superb guided tours. More information available here: http://trinitychurchboston.org/visit/tours

tomatoes, red onions and herbs served with warm bread

Two salads I made inspired by recipes in the cookbook Share: The Cookbook That Celebrates Our Common Humanity. The book was an unexpected find as I wandered through a local Ten Thousand Villages store. It kind of jumped into my arms with its beautiful photography, wide range of recipes from peoples around the globe from Kosovo to the Congo, and data about the challenges and opportunities for girls and women living in areas of great conflict. An inspiring book produced by Women for Women International.

If you follow my blog you may know that there is a young baker whom I’ve challenged (quite by accident) to produce expressions of culinary simplicity. Her first expression involved dark chocolate and cinnamon. The second was a shortbread cookie … with a center of soft rose-colored guava paste. The third expression was probably the most on point  … a macaroon with just four ingredients, like a little sweet cloud with a crust. And for my birthday out of nowhere appears a bag of sweet morsels, still simple, just colored orange ’cause that’s a favorite color I mentioned one day, and just a few sprinkles to brighten the day. I’m a rather lucky person, I have to say. 🙂
