edamame "hummus"

A change of pace from the usual chickpea hummus... a bowl of spring-y green goodness.

I put "" around the word "hummus" because I learned that hummus actually = chickpea... so technically this isn't hummus but a pureed bean dip. That's if you want to be technical. Anyway...

In a food processor:

half a bag of frozen shelled edamame, steamed until tender but still bright green (after steaming, dump into a bowl of ice water to stop cooking)
tahini, about a tablespoon
1-2 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
lemon juice to taste
fruity, good quality extra virgin olive oil - enough to make it creamy

I think I ate half the bowl.

new season of life

So it's been very quiet and uneventful on this blog for quite some time. On the contrary, life has been nothing but eventful. All good things. Perhaps that's why I couldn't put them into words. You know how when something is so beautiful, things are better left unsaid? Because somehow, naming it or trying to describe it might diminish its beauty and wonder and magic... and something this beautiful, I would rather leave untarnished. But I also wanted to write about it in some way. And when my own words falter, I turn to poetry...

This is love: to fly toward a secret sky,
to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.
First, to let go of life.
In the end, to take a step without feet;
to regard this world as invisible,
and to disregard what appears to be the self.

- Rumi

March 19th, 2011 - the eve of the first day of spring - symbolic of a new beginning, a new journey.

A small room bathed in warm afternoon light, overlooking the earth being reborn after a long winter.  Promises exchanged in a quiet, intimate ceremony, witnessed by 8 people.

To A. - my heart, my home, my husband.
