happy crepe makers

once a year, each of my children are allowed to bring their classmates to kismet for a crepe and tea party! Today, Lara Slessor's 2nd grade class came, made delicious fresh mint tea & each made their own crepe!! they did a great job, were very polite, and filled our dining room with giggles, joy & chocolate fingerprints!!
Having the children there reminded me how important it is to be sure to involve kids in the cooking of their own food. They had so many wonderful questions, and really were very proud of themselves & the food they made!

theres a new season on its way!!

AHH! SPRING! yes, really, it is nearly here!

Where does this joy come from?
is it in the sunshine-
the feeling of bliss when i wake-
the grass revealed?
Is it in the warm breeze-
the site of naked skin-
the extra bit of sunlight as i set my dinner table?
it is all of this and more!!

It is the pleasure in my heart as I receive local spinach-
newly dug roots
fresh eggs with the bright yellow yolk of happy chicks!
It is the excitement in my whole body when i plan kismet's garden-
5000 feet of simple expectations
where spreadsheets give way to soil, starts & seeds!
& it is within me-
my own yearning for new flavors, colors & nourishment...

After all that we endured last year (which i still struggle putting into words), at kismet, we are quietly celebrating the birth of a new year, and a new season!

I hope you are all well, and will drop in and join us soon!
Also, i hope that you will let us know what is your favorite oldies as well as your new favorites so we can form our new menus with you in mind!!
