this month's wisdom quote
A beautiful poem by Mary Oliver
SOME QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT ASK
Is the soul solid, like iron?
Or is it tender and breakable, like
the wings of a moth in the beak of the owl?
Who has it, and who doesn't?
I keep looking around me.
The face of of the moose is as sad
as the face of Jesus.
The swan opens her white wings slowly.
In the fall, the black bear carries leaves into the darkness.
One question leads to another.
Does it have a shape? Like an iceberg?
Like the eye of the hummingbird?
Does it have one lung, like the snake and the scallop?
Why should I have it, and not the anteater
who loves her children?
Why should I have it, and not the camel?
Come to think of it, what about the maple trees?
What about the blue iris?
What about all the little stones, sitting alone in the moonlight?
What about roses, and lemons, and their shining leaves?
What about the grass?
this month's recipe for health and happiness!
Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts
(this recipe is from the book "Liver Rescue" by Anthony William)
2 pounds brussels sprouts
2 TB lemon juice
3 TB maple syrup
1 garlic clove
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. sea salt, divided
Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Prepare the brussels sprouts by removing the stems and slicing vertically into halves. This should yield about 6 cups of halved brussels sprouts.
Place the lemon juice, maple syrup, garlic clove, cayenne, paprika, red pepper flakes, and 1/4 tsp of the sea salt into a blender and blend until a smooth marinade forms.
In a large mixing bowl, toss the brussels sprouts in the marinade.
Spread out the brussels sprouts face down on two baking trays lined with parchment paper. Make sure to the save the left over marinade in the mixing bowl.
Roast the brussels sprouts for 15 - 20 minutes, until they start to turn golden brown.
Return the roasted brussels sprouts immediately to the mixing bowl and toss them in the leftover marinade. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 tsp. of sea salt over the top and serve immediately!
