A Bread Free Sandwich Idea

Enjoy a nice fresh pepperwich. Smiley Face optional.

Ever tried a “pepperwich?”  Many people are familiar with baked stuffed peppers covered with tomato sauce, but you can also stuff you favorite sandwich filling into a raw pepper shell.

Cut a large green bell pepper in half lengthwise.  Remove seeds and as much white pith as you can.  I also cut out the stem.  Fill up your pepper shells with your favorite filling. I like an eggless egg salad made with chickpeas, but tuna salad is also nice as are sliced sandwich meats, cheese and your favorite condiments.  One green pepper makes two servings.

Smiley face optional, but why not?

“Keep love in your heart.  A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.”— Oscar Wilde

One Size Does Not Fit All

We are bombarded with messages from popular media telling us to do this or not do that. While we would all like to find a perfect one size fits all solution or have someone else tell us how to live, that is not how life works. Life is a journey and we learn the way on the trip.

It is important to remember the words of Carl Jung, “… there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.”  Finding your way through life can be a lonely experience.  Continue  with prayer and meditation, following inner guidance and you will find others along the way to share experiences with.  Who knows, you may one day find others following you.

Happy Accidents

I  still love watching reruns of The Joy of Painting with the late Bob Ross on PBS.  Bob was not only a painter and teacher, he was also a philosopher and nature lover.  One of his favorite sayings was, “There are no mistakes, just happy accidents.“

Learning anything new becomes overwhelming if you are afraid of making mistakes.  Making what at first seems like a mistake may actually turn out better than what you intended.  Look for them and you will learn to love those “happy accidents.”
