"Do not overcook this dish. Most seafoods...should be simply threatened with heat and then celebrated with joy."--Jeff Smith, The Frugal Gourmet

Personal Notes:
~The hands that do God's work are patient hands,
And quick for toil through folded oft in prayer;
They do the unseen work they understand
And find---no matter where,
The feet that follow His must be swift feet.
For time is all too short, the way too long;
Perchance they may be bruised, but falter not,
For love shall make them strong.
Now! It is gone--our brief hour travel past,
Each with its thought or deed, its Why or How:
But know, each parting hour gives up a ghost.
To dwell within thee--an eternal Now.
