You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is the good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.” Mathew 5:13 RSB
Last night after a long day of work I came home to a lovely dinner prepared by my husband Todd.
Todd grew thyme, marjoram, basil and rosemary this summer, and used them in preparing a white sauce from scratch. He began by melting butter then blending in flour to make a rue from which to add milk for a smooth, creamy white sauce. He then seasoned it lightly by adding a sprig each from the four herbs, steeping the sauce like cup of hot tea. Along the way he lightly seasoned with salt to bring out the flavors, and added a splash of pepper. He later added in some leftover “Newman’s Own” Alfredo sauce for the mozzarella flavor. He lightly salted and peppered the salmon, pan searing it in olive oil in a cast iron skillet preheated to a very high heat then reduced immediately after putting the salmon in the skillet. The salmon was plated and laid on bed of steamed green beans, corn and peas and, then drizzled with the aromatic white sauce. Mmmmmmm….My love language is acts of service, so I felt very very loved. When asked how he prepared the dish, he said “Fresh ingredients, simply cooked, artistically presented” quoting Marco from Chopped, a cooking show he and Sabrina recently watched.
Seasoning our world is that simple. Be of service to another and they will see Him in us, as I saw My Father in heaven in Todd by his act of love in service to our family.
