A reminder that our next Food Group is next week ~ hope you can make it!
Monday, November 9, 2009, 7-8:30pm
At Bethany’s Home -- email bethany(at)frenchprairie(dot)com for the address
No book discussion this time. Instead, we’ll be swapping IDEAS for: simple/sweet/handmade/inexpensive/interesting/food-related/all-of-the (or)none-of-the-above Christmas gifts and RECIPES for: simple/fairly quick/nutritious meals (you know – those “Everyone’s blood sugar is low…dinner should have been ready an hour ago…what can we make without going out to eat and spending too much or starting an hour-long-dinner project?” meals).
If you can bring a few copies of instructions/recipes for people, great! If not, you can just bring one copy and leave it here and I’ll post it online for the group.
As always, feel free to bring a friend, bring something to eat, bring a story about your food-life, or just bring yourself and enjoy the good company and good conversation...
Food Group Update
It’s been a full twelve months since the formation of Sustainable Food For Thought and the beginning of our Food Group meetings. This journey together through books and topics of discussion related to wholesome food and a nourishing lifestyle has been a fun, encouraging
opportunity to connect with friends, new and old, and celebrate the beauty of delicious life.
Thank you to each of you who have participated in one way or another, through meetings, through book suggestions and discussions, through the blog, and through swapping resources and stories.
After Monday’s meeting, we will be taking a hiatus from our (semi-) regular get-togethers. Lisa (our gracious hostess for many months), Andrea (healthy living extraordinaire) and Emily (Sustainable Food For Thought co-founder) will all be welcoming sweet little lives into the world over the next several months, and in light of babies + holiday season + conclusion of a full year of meeting together, we’ve decided to continue the conversation on the blog and through the Google Group.
If there is interest after the new year, we may see about re-starting meetings, perhaps on a seasonal basis (one per quarter?). Of course, if you would like friends to join you for other opportunities in the meantime, feel free to post details and invite the group to join in.
Much love and good food…
Bethany & Emily
"Eating with the fullest pleasure - pleasure, that is, that does not depend on ignorance - is perhaps the profoundest enactment of our connection with the world. In this pleasure we experience our dependence and our gratitude, for we are living in a mystery, from creatures we did not make and powers we cannot comprehend."
