No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

"Poets are like baseball pitchers. Both have their moments. The intervals are the tough things." - Robert Frost

As I may have written in the past, Michael is the cook in our family and I do the cleaning up. In the past few days Michael has not felt in the mood to cook.

We had a conversation about it and he suggested that, maybe, it would help him if I prepared a salad or created a side dish for our meals. After that we said no more.

Well, this morning I woke up from a dream where I had been eating a three bean salad. I remembered I like three bean salad.

When I got up I checked the cupboard and found we had all three beans. The only thing the recipe called for was green bell peppers. Oh well, it would still be good without the pepper.

By this time, Michael has gotten up and came into the kitchen. He was pleasantly surprised seeing me mixing away of the pot of beans. One thing for sure, the mixture smelled good but then I have always like apple cider vinegar.

Next on my list of prepping foods were the fresh green beans we received from the food bank. Sometimes, fresh foods go bad before we get to them. I was not going to let this happen to those green beans. I like them with a drizzle of sesame oil. So, I rinsed the beans and snapped them to size and they are now ready for steaming with tomorrow night's dinner.

Lastly, I found a recipe for rice and beans. I have the beans soaking in water now and tomorrow I will cook them up. I advised Michael of what I was doing and he thought the spicy sausages we received from the Salvation Army would go good with the rice and beans. The sausage is now thawing out as I type.

I can hardly wait to see what tomorrow will bring for food magick.
