A Sandwich Becomes a Celebration

She knows how to make a sandwich into a celebration. A salad into a symphony. And granola into a grand delight. Sometimes she holds an ingredient, say basil, in her hand before adding it to an awaiting salad. She seems to become one with briny feta cheese, plump red tomatoes or glisteny smooth olives before introducing them to the choir of complimentary salad components. Like a conductor she pays close attention to the unique contribution of each ingredient and the harmony of enjoyment being created.

She is my muse who dances with me to the kitchen and the garden and to meals shared with precious people. Her gentle voice and appreciation of nature always bring pleasure, smiles and a sense of wonder.
