Revive the senses through feel-good food. Just do anything food-wise, no matter how small, that makes you zing: pour hot water over fresh herbs for a fragrant tea; buy a whole organic pumpkin for a kitchen table centrepiece; thank a farmer at a farmers' market; put your hands on warm earth; spot a local rosemary bush; snag some for your lamb roast or your hair (Why not? Go nuts!); and comment to share your feel-good spring snippet. If stuck for ideas, mine are yours. Let's unite in support of feel-good food and ethical food practices. Thanks to all too who supported my Spring Feel-Good Food Project. I had a blast! While my food interests are diverse, so is my food writing history (and lifestyle freelance writing and corporate writing, yada...). Please see below right and my new FoodLit Website. Yeah! Please also subscribe for occasional food-fuelled news, ventures and opportunities.

Life's Lessons in Cabbages - Day 20, 72 To Go ....



When I first started this blog, I wondered how I was ever going to come up with 91 ideas, one for each spring day. While it's only Day 20, I realised today that it's not me coming up with the ideas. They're just springing up around me in this fab country of ours where we have access to so much good food, whether home grown, bought or foraged. It's everywhere. 

I was pretty excited to pick this little purple pearler today, all framed and pretty in her purple frills. Whoever named it red cabbage is clearly colour blind; they're purple - and you sure know it when you cook it together with other veg. Everything ends up a lovely shade of blue. Not pink.

As a first time cabbage grower, I was chuffed as ever when I threw half of it into a pot.

As a woman on a mission to clear out the shed before hard rubbish collection day tomorrow, I was mortified as ever when I burned it.

Clean shed, charcoal-ed cabbage and burnt pot later, I decided there's no point fighting it, or anything for that matter. 

It is what it is.

 Real people are much better than views measured on a line graph. Say hi and, if you like, share anything about food or garden or even what the 
high point in your day was today. 
We’re all in this together folks. 
Here’s to feeling good!
