Day 11 – Mushrooms
Maybe you do not like mushrooms very much – but have you ever thought about what you can learn from mushrooms?
If you walk on a woodland trail, you are likely to so many mushrooms – different colors; different shapes. They grew all together, teaching us about diversity.
And, they push their way up through the dark, sometimes reaching for some light. Mushrooms teach us about learning to trust. There are treasures in darkness. Sometimes we must journey through dark times, and we must trust in how this forms us, even though we are feeling lost or far from the Divine.
Reflect on this scripture:
I will give you the treasures of darkness and riches hidden in secret places, so that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who call you by your name.” – Isaiah 45:3
Question to ponder:
When have you pushed through a dark time, only to find a hidden treasure?
As you reflect on that, enjoy this piece of music that reminds that are one with all creation:
Do you like to cook with mushrooms?
Try this Mushroom Spinach Quiche recipe:
In a large skillet sauté: 1 tablespoon oil 1 cup chopped onion 1 cup sliced mushrooms
Add to skillet 1 package (10 oz) thawed chopped spinach, well drained 2/3 cup finely chopped fully cooked ham (or bacon) Cook and stir until excess moisture is evaporated. Cool slightly.
Meanwhile in large bowl mix together: 5 large eggs well beaten 3 cups (12 oz) shredded Muenster or Monterey Jack cheese 1/8 teaspoon pepper
Add spinach mixture to bowl, blend well. Spread evenly into a greased 9 inch quiche dish or pie plate. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Yield: 6-8 servings
