A Big & Beautiful Radish Baby

We found an enormous radish at the Local Public Market

I tried to get a picture to show the radish was almost the size of a 5 year olds head!

Maya at Maya’s Farm, where we found the radish, suggested she flip the root around and hold it like a baby – Genius!

Until we took it home….

It became a Delicious sautéed side!

RECIPE: “Home Fry” Local Radish & Greens:

Wash & chop the radish & leaves

& place them in separate piles.

Then heat the pan, add oil & salt.

When the pan is hot, place the chopped radish pieces in.

Sauté the pieces like home fries,

until they were getting golden or crispy.

Remove the radish pieces & sauté the radish greens with a little bit of salt & water.  

When the greens are soft & tender, but not over cooked, place them on a dish with the “home fry” radishes on top – Ready to Eat – Delicious!

The Wisdom of the Phoenix

“In the multitude of words there certainly are mistakes.

It is difficult to get a good word; it is easy to give a bad one.

And much mischief come from opening the mouth.”

“Plant Your Seeds.  Protect Your Gardens.  Protect Your Whole Body.”

Today the little one in our lives shared a little insight.

We were creating a flyer.  I asked her, “What would you like to tell people?”

She said: “Plant your seeds, Protect your gardens, Protect your whole body.”

She paused for a moment… and asked me, “Did you write all that down?”

I smiled and said, “Yes.”

The Schools and Virtues of Tea

“The tea-plant, a native to southern China, was known from very early time to Chinese botany and medicine…and was highly praised for possessing the virtues of relieving fatigue, delighting the soul, strengthening the will, and repairing the eyesight.” 

“The Taoists claimed it as an important ingredient of the elixir of  immortality.”

“The Buddhists used it extensively to prevent drowsiness during their long hours of meditation.”  

In Japan, “[t]he beverage grew to be an excuse for the worship of the purity and refinement, a sacred function at which the host and guest joined to produce for the occasion and the utmost beatitude of the mundane.”

“The tea-room was an oasis in the oasis in the dreary waste of existence where weary travelers could meet to drink from the common spring…”
