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.

Simple and yummy are both good.

One year for Lent, my parents decided that one night a week we would have only rice for dinner. It was years and years ago, but I still remember the talks we had about how for so many people around the world, this was all they had to eat. That still stands out as one of the most powerful Lenten seasons of my life, and it really was so simple.

Hmmm, this post is sticking with me. I think that we will be doing a very simple meal once a week as well. Thank you!

I love that. Simple is so amazing and just right sometimes.

Enjoyment of a tummy warm and full with time to be in that moment.
