I didn't take any pictures. You're going to have to close your eyes and picture a hunk of beef.
Are you done?
I went to the Farmer's Market this afternoon and after perusing my possibilities, settled on some zucchini, yellow squash, and purple and yellow beans. I then stopped at my grocery store to pick up a few things so I could make a Peach Clafouti. I found the recipe at one of my new favorite blog spots - www.mennonitegirlscancook.blogspot.com
Why did I go to this much trouble?
I wanted to sit around my table tonight with my family. I wanted to put good food in front of them. I wanted to feel their hands in mine while we prayed. I wanted to see their faces and listen to their words as they told their dad about our day in the soy bean field (more on that another day). I wanted to watch Will size up the roasted zucchini and say to him his favorite words, "just eat it." I wanted to look at Kelli and Elizabeth who sit beside each other at our table, and be amazed at how beautiful they have become. I wanted to watch Farmer Boy drink in his kids after a dry day at the office. I wanted us to be together, to celebrate a end of a chapter, the end of a fantastic summer.
It really wasn't much trouble at all.
