Kalamata olives and a dandelion experiment

Sunday was delightful; we had an unexpected lunch guest, and then two more families for an unexpected coffee . . that turned into an unexpected dinner. it's nice that Spaniards don't eat much for dinner - - the fridge was empty but I was able to feed them all with a bunch of tomatoes, some cheese , a few baguettes, and (oh! I'm glad I found this in the back of my cupboard!) a can of olives . I was thankful for this chance to exercise my gifts within the church; its so nice this way!I get a lot of dandelions around here (because of this . . .) and have found with Malachai that if you keep the bright, sunny yellow dandelions in a vase long enough, they turn into the lovely, fluffy, blow-away dandelions!

I'm curious to know what you made to satisfy your guests with those secret ingredients. Last night I made a new recipe of pozole for a dinner guest--it got an A+ from Mercy so I'll definately make it again.

Dear Naomi,

You have such a gift of hospitality. How wonderful you accept unexpected company as a blessing not an inconvenience. I'm sure you prepared a wonderful, relaxed meal with a beautiful floral arrangement provided by Malachai. Enjoy these special moments. God is good - every day, all the time.

Love,

Ginny
