Three Basic Needs

"It seems to me that our three basic needs, for food and security and love,
are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think
of one without the others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I
am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth and the
love of it and the hunger for it… and then the warmth and richness
and fine reality of hunger satisfied… and it is all one."

Thoughts From the Kitchen

I’m in my kitchen a lot and I love it. Kitchens really are the heart of every home. We think about our food here. We make lists to stock our pantry with ingredients we love. We plan days to feast and days to use up delicious leftovers while we live our busy lives. We clean. All this gives us a self-nourishing routine as a part of our living life. I love that about cooking.

Tonight, I’ll be cooking fish tacos on the stove in a cast iron skillet, using El Capitan Seasoning, of course! They’re an easy dish for the end of a busy week. I’ll dip tilapia filets in flour, then beaten egg, and then grill them lightly in olive oil over medium-high heat for nice color in a heavy skillet. El Cap makes these delicious. Warm some corn tortillas in foil in the oven, using two per taco. Some finely shredded cabbage, sliced onion, avocado and shredded cheese. A green sauce, or your favorite sauce, and a little sliced lime finishes off delicious fish tacos!

Friday finds me in the kitchen once again. It’s been a busy week and fish tacos are on the menu! I hope your Friday is a good one. What are you cooking this weekend? Whatever it is, take a deep breath, relax and enjoy your time in the kitchen. In there, we are the heartbeat of the home.
