Art Everyday Month – Day 5

The art of food.

I like to eat.  Eat to live.  Live to eat.  I’m not always an adventurous eater, but every now and then I’ll try something new.

This past Sunday it was Spicy Chicken Fried Rice.  It was delicious!  The advantage to an Asian food court is all the amazing new food research I can carry out.

Tonight, it’s Korean soup.  I couldn’t tell you the name of it.  I can only tell you that it sure was dang tasty and spicy.  I tried a sample of it at a place called H-Mart – a local grocery store specializing in all sorts of Asian foods.  I figured it would be cool to try; plus I was starving.  {Note to self – never go shopping when you’re hungry.}

I liked it enough to buy a pack.  I wish I’d thought to take pictures before I cooked it, but oh well.  Here’s what it looked like when it was done.

Maybe if we’re willing to try new things, our horizons will expand.  We’ll find hidden treasure in the diversity among us.  We’ll step into someone else’s story.  We’ll experience a different kind of community that opens our hearts to loving without condition.

Perhaps that is the real power behind the art of food.  It creates connection and belonging in ways we cannot imagine.  So, here’s to the adventure of living life more fully and tasting all it has to offer.

You’ll find more artists crafting their everyday creative.  Explore the community.

  1. Marvia, what you say here: “Maybe if we’re willing to try new things, our horizons will expand. We’ll find hidden treasure in the diversity among us. We’ll step into someone else’s story. We’ll experience a different kind of community that opens our hearts to loving without condition.

    Perhaps that is the real power behind the art of food. It creates connection and belonging in ways we cannot imagine.” – makes my day! It brought me to the gospel stories and how much Jesus loved to eat with all different kinds of people.

    Food is an art, isn’t it – not just the food itself, but the whole experience, from selecting it at the store, to putting the ingredients together that you know your family loves most… to sitting at the table and sharing hearts. There’s power in your words, Marvia – and in the Kingdom perspective you open up to us 🙂

    • Yes and Yes. There’s something about food that allows for community segues and uncommon connection. Because Christ was always about the people. Sometimes we struggle to just be in the presence of people just as Jesus did. Here’s to walking it out!
