I have had a terrible migraine for the past 24 hours, one of those "I will not let you eat, sleep or be a productive member of society" headaches. I chose to stay home today, to try and sleep off my headache and be still. It has been a quiet, shh, pull the shades, block out the sun, turn off all exterior noise please and let me be type of day. Thankfully the clouds rolled in and a sweet cool pre-autumn wind is breathing on me and cooling my temper as I type.
Quietly, I am dreaming of planting quince trees and eating the dragon fruit that I just purchased..... it's pink skin will have to wait for now. Nature has blessed us with so many achingly beautiful colors. I was recently blessed with my own personal Quiet Riot in the kitchen. No need for words or loud noises, just the bounty of Summer's harvest, sitting on my kitchen table. Not feeling the need to get all crazy in my kitchen and write a long blog entry, today is megan-time, time to be, me, quiet, resting, silent.
I had big plans for all of the beauty you see below, yet most of it just slipped into the daily routing of our life. A nibble here and a nibble there, snacks for hungry tummies, and side dishes for our supper. A rainbow of color. No recipe. Just soothing color ready to be eaten. A feast for my eyes.... and head.
|Blue Damson Plums....they made it as far as our Scottish Oats, sliced and drizzled with maple syrup.|
|Blue Damson Plums, Brown Berry Tomatoes, and Purple Beans|
|My quiet riot of rainbow colors.|
|Instead of ice cream, we enjoyed tomatoes!|
|Purple Beans...... turn green when eaten.|
Be well, enjoy your peace, may you have no headaches, and if you do happen to have one today.... bliss out on nothing and just be!
