The First Day of Lent

“We must learn to fast from all unworthy thought
 and feast on the good and true….
we must fast from criticism and condemnation
 and feast in brotherly love; fast from false beliefs in lack
 and limitations and feast on the truth
 of God’s bountiful good will…”

Salmon With Caramelized Banana and Mandarin Orange

Years ago in New York City I had grilled salmon with bananas and I loved it.

And I loved this:

I roasted the salmon in a 410 oven for about 20 minutes. I should have grilled it, but it is winter, and it was cold and dark when I made dinner.

Ingredients:

About 1 1/2 pounds Shetland Salmon (Or Sockeye or King); use leftovers for Salmon Cakes

1 banana peeled and sliced
1 cup Mandarin oranges, drained
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/3 teaspoon Cayenne pepper

Directions:

Rinse off salmon filets under tap water set on plate and lightly salt and pepper. Squeeze 1/2 lemon juice over the salmon and bake or grill as stated above.

In a skillet, melt butter under medium high heat, when butter has melted add in brown sugar and Cayenne pepper. You need to watch this and stir it about every 15 seconds until it starts to bubble or caramelize. Add in banana slices and mandarin oranges. Cook until they have a nice glaze on them and pour over the salmon.

A Few Favorite Paintings by Heather Green

Last week
I had the distinct pleasure
to photograph the portfolio of paintings and drawings,
a beautiful and interesting collection,
of the artist
Heather Green.
Yesterday,
as I came to the end
of editing the photographs,
I paused with my work,
for I felt a sadness, a regret,
that soon my work would be completed.
I have experienced such a profound delight,
inspiration and prayerful wonder
looking at the art of Heather Green.
There is a spiritual coloring found in some of her work,
for me reminiscent of the photo-secessionists;
Heather, indeed, often paints from Polaroids.
The landscapes are both lyrical and modern,
Pastels are charged with eroticism.
Music, magic, and motion influence her art.
Her vision.
Here are a few of my favorites:

And here is Heather:

Heather is a graduate of The University of Massachusetts, Fine Arts.
Her website is under construction.
