February 27: I love
a simple Lenten meal. I love cooking, and am prone to try to have something new and delicious and time-consuming on the table when Ben gets home. But in getting swept away by my interest in food, I often forget how simple a meal can be-- how simply the majority of the world eats on a daily basis. Last night we had Ramen noodles for dinner, and it was entirely adequate and good. Every member of the family had some, it filled our tummies, and there was none left over. I am thankful to have a season in which I remember the abundance that can be present in scarcity.
