My husband is the king of caramelizing onions in a cast-iron skillet, and he made some today for his lunchtime sandwich. I eat a salad for lunch every day, but I wanted some of those onions! So I took a few generous spoonfuls and put them on my big bed of (red leaf) lettuce, added some pecans and a tiny sprinkling of sunflower seeds, and crumbled on chunks of chevre. Then for icing on the cake I sprinkled on some pink Himalayan salt and raspberry balsamic vinegar.
Shazam! That was one good salad. The onions + chevre + raspberry sent it over the top.
Now it's time for Sunday afternoon: a nap for the mister and creamy coffee and books for me. (With some intermittent childcare....of course!)
And finally today we celebrate the baptism of Jesus.
"Here is my servant, whom I uphold,
my chosen one in whom I delight;
I will put my Spirit on him,
and he will bring justice to the nations..." (1st verse of Isaiah 42)
May it be so.
