End of June

Another month has come and gone and we are 1/2 way through the year of 2014.
I have been going through items that were in storage and it has been hard to know what to keep and what to let go of.   Most of these items and papers have been gone through 2 other times and I don't think there is anything else I can release.  But we shall see. 

"I am going on my journey glad with joy from dawn to dark.
With the spirit of the morning and the carol of the lark.
I am drinking of these fountains whence the healing waters flow,
And I hear heaven's sweetest music as along my way I go.
And my heart is full of laughter like the singing of  a psalm;
My sky bends blue above me with its winds of evening balm,
And I know not any trouble, for I have the tempest's King
To change my winter's fury to gladness of his spring."

Black Bean & Roasted Sweet Potato Burgers

 I actually made another recipe today.  Like
 all of us, I have tons of recipes to try, but seem to do only 2 a year!  This one is from Kris Carr
 and looked delish. (and was)  It doesn't look like her photo, but even Mike liked it and that
 is saying a lot!  It took a while to do...had to 
make rice and also roast the sweet potato, 
but it did make 6 so I froze the other four.  
I had a bit of rice and roasted sweet potatoes left over, so I steamed some brocolli 
and mixed it all together with a bit of pesto
 on top.  Served over some wilted greens too.

The below photo was taken a few years ago
 off the Mendocino Coast in Northern California.
