I guess the theme of the day in the blogosphere on this Wednesday morning is "the simple things in life"... Julochka has her list up, inspired by Christina's post, and I had a similar list some time ago here, but today I decided to stick to one "simple thing" that gives me and many others a bit of joy and pleasure.... food. I know our caveman fathers ate whatever they could find just to survive, but eventually man figured out that...hey... some of this stuff taste better with some of this other stuff mixed in and our pallets started evolving. I think food and the process of eating, especially in good company... foods that we enjoy eating.... and those little guilty pleasures that make our tummies happy.... is one of the greater joys in life. And often times it is that little "simple thing" that we enjoy.
I love most cheeses, but have never really been big on blue cheese, however this little, creamy delight I found some time ago from Trader Joe's is amazing, this is my little guilty pleasure I indulge in from time to time. And I don't know if you've noticed this about me from some of my posts... but the things I enjoy eating... I like to savor, and really let the tastes dance in my mouth in stead of devouring it in one bite.
Yesterday after my grocery shopping, this is what I had for lunch.... some nice crusty Ciabatta bread, a nice helping of that yummy Castello Blue cheese, and I love some honeycomb on it, oh... the flavors are sooooo nice together (I'm salivating just writing about it).... focus Mari... focus.
So, enjoy those simple little things that put a smile on your face, and play along today.... let us know what your simple pleasures are in life.
Still gloomy and blue down here in LA today.... enjoy your day anyways :)
Love and Peace!
