Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.

As I sit here and write this today it is surely almost impossible to believe that this year is quickly and surely coming almost to a close. Here I am, on the morning of yet another Halloween, and while I’m not a huge Halloween fan (never have been), I can’t help but look back fondly at all the years of costumes and pumpkin carving that has flown by just way, way, way too quickly.

If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sun beams and you will always look lovely.

Okay, who loves squash? Yeah, I know, it’s pretty tough not to. I love it too, especially since you can buy it when the mood strikes you and leave it sitting pretty on your counter until you need it (can I get a yes for no spoilage?), and it’s pretty tasty & nutritious too. Yup, squash is awesome, and in most places, an easy to find local food.
A vegetable I don’t often use though is fennel, as unless it’s juiced, I’ve never really found it that appealing in taste or in texture until recently. I love that about food (and most anything), there seems to always be something new & amazing to discover, whether it’s a cooking method, a new spice or any single ingredient. It’s all a giant sprawling rabbit hole that really can keep going on forever so long as we decide to keep pushing forward, and it’s never too late (never) to pick up again and start anew.

Regardless of your cooking skill, or how you eat, I’ve had countless discussions with folks who all agree that finding inspiration, or just coming up with the very idea of what to make can be the biggest challenge when attempting good, sensible meal preparation in the home.

They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
― Andy Warhol
Change. It’s a wonderful thing. As the seasons change, so do we, and one can never expect that things will remain the same, not ever, and why would we? There are so many wonderful things to do and experience! Sometimes it’s all about the little things, like that water you never drink in the morning? These are the things YOU can do, right now. Just do it. Just drink it (those of you who don’t drink enough water, that’s for you). Change can be as simple as changing your phone screen saver (I’m working on a good one) to a fresh perspective, or running a slightly different route than the one you’ve practically worn your predictable footprints into.

That's living with (just a little) less.
