A Restful Night At Home

Tonight we shared a wonderful meal of Los Nogales-style Fajitas. Let me explain. Since working with my cousin and her husband at Affordable American Insurance, we have discovered a wonderful little Mom-and-Pop Mexican restaurant, Los Nogales, which I call the best Mexican food in Denver (well, it's the best I've ever tasted!).

Anyway, we've been there many times, and most recently we went on a fact-finding dinner (actually, Kathy, Pam, and Jill were fact finding; I was just enjoying the food). The gourmet cooks in our home (that does not include moi) were researching how to make these delicious fajitas. Tonight we enjoyed the fruits of their research. Here's a picture of the finished product, fajitas, black-bean salsa, tomato-avocado-salsamole, and multi-grain tortillas.

Here are a couple of views from the kitchen.

For some years now, we have made every effort to set aside Friday night as a time to rejoice together in the evening meal, remembering the completion of the work of creation and savoring a time to be together and to invite others to join us in this celebration. We have learned from our Jewish friends the joy of the seventh day, the time to remember the God of creation and this marvelous day. Although we do not have a complete understanding of it, our little grasp of it has greatly enriched our lives. We eat together, light some candles, bless God for the fruit of the vine and the bringing forth of bread from the earth, and we bless one another. One night and day of the week set aside especially to bless God and one another. What a concept! How did we miss it?
