This past weekend a friend brought a huge basket of beautiful fresh blackberries for a brunch we were having with a few other friends. They made a gorgeous and dramatic addition to the fruit bowl and, though they're not in season in our slice of the hemisphere, they were plump, sweet and juicy. So I'm offering a hearty THANK YOU holler to whoever (somewhere out there) is growing these wonderful berries for us to enjoy while the cold winds blow and the days here are dark, damp and dreary.
As I was cleaning up after brunch I noticed, to my great delight, that half of the yummy berries remained in their little plastic basket. They were looking quite lonely and forlorn, but it didn't take me long to take care of that dilemma, as a beautiful salad idea started swirling in my mind ................

The Bible is the place I go to for strength, encouragement and wisdom. It's never-changing, despite the shifting sands of an uncertain, ever-vacillating world. Never failing to give me proper perspective on life and hope for the future, it's stood the test of time and is as true today as it was a thousand years ago.
There's one verse that, though the Bible certainly needs no embellishment from me, I'd love to revise just a bit; it's found in Psalm 127, verse five. It speaks about children and it goes like this; "Blessed (happy) is the man whose quiver is full of them" .................

We love curry here at The Café, and if you search our recipe archives, you're sure to find a bevy of variations of delicious Asian/Indian-inspired curry entrées. This Coconut Curry Shrimp was another home run, in fact, my husband took his first taste and paid me a supreme compliment .................
