Empty plates

What happens to you when your plate empties?  Doesn’t it feel great to get tasks accomplished?  In case you were wondering, this plate happened to have a gigantic, lemon ginger snap cookie on it.

So,what’s next?

“Begin doing what you want to do now.  We are not living in eternity.  We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake.  Let us use it before it is too late.”   Marie Beyon Ray

I hope your plate has good things, like lemon ginger snaps, alongside the mundane and the necessary.

  1. The most unnecessary things – well, foodwise – on my plate currently are PUDDINGs. Yes, Pudding. Vanilla pudding. Rice pudding. Pudding bought at the store in cartons…pudding made at home from a butterscotch box, from cold milk; next to try is the hot milk recipe in a box, generic brand, and compare it with the Jell-o version of same. And I found and made a recipe from scratch a few nights ago which I finished last night. But frankly, nothing touches the version I found at Jason’s Deli a couple of weeks ago in their salad bar. Smoooooth. Now WHERE does one find it to take home?
    And unfortunately I have seldom known the feeling of an empty plate, except possibly the morning after returning rented lighting equipment and platforms, and dropping off costumes at a cleaner’s. One empty plate – with several full ones nearby loaded with more papers to read than pudding to read.
