I. The Bible in Recipes
Genesis: Arrange a salad of baby greens, chaos and tomatoes. Set aside and prepare a dressing of wine vinegar, dry mustard and struggle with a barren land. Kill whatever crosses your path or it will kill you. Marinate.
Exodus: On flatbread, assemble: yogurt, chives, sauteed ground lamb. Garnish with fresh, local herbs. Do not use beef.
Leviticus: Sweat onions, carrots, celery in a stock pot until soft; add sliced herbs, sliced meat, sliced vegetables. Whatever you do, don’t argue where the soup can hear you.
Numbers: Make cocktails before guests arrive. History proves: everyone loves a good host.
Deuteronomy: Baking is too complicated for most of us but cake is delicious.
II. Sometimes Love Is Not Enough
If you’d paid any attention you’d know I know: I never mattered to you, and there was nothing wrong with me.
