every time we go to pick up our organic produce co-op order, we are "gob-smacked" to discover just how SPECIFIC is our Papa's answer to some of our prayers. a few weeks ago, we'd been eyeing champagne grapes at the grocery - but being that they're not cheap, and i didn't know how they taste, i hadn't bought them. well lo and behold, we arrived at co-op that week, and in the "kitchen" (read: cheap because it must be used immediately) basket, we received CHAMPAGNE GRAPES! (and in case you're wondering, they're terrific.) this week the kids had been moaning that it's been a while since we've bought artichokes, and when can we get them again? and guess what was in our "kitchen" basket this week? oh yeah, baby. lunch today was a FEAST. (sorry daddy, but we know you don't love these anyway.)
we love - LOVE - to eat these dipped in melted butter and balsamic vinegar... when i was a kid my parents ate them after we went to bed and for some reason i love inviting my kids to love this with me...
"how deep the Father's love for us
how vast beyond all measure
that He should give His only Son
to make a wretch His treasure..."
