Sometimes you come across a blog and you know instantly the person behind it is on your wavelength, that you would be friends in real life, or that their philosophy in life is the same as yours. I cannot remember when first I read Eats Well With Others but I love everything about Joanne’s blog. This year has been one that started off on an amazing path, and she has shared the journey with The.Boyfriend with us on her blog. Joanne is a vegetarian, and her blog has amazing recipes that truly inspire me every day. Her writing is fantastic and I can tell you that when I read about her experiences on 9/11 I wanted to give her a huge hug. But that huge hug was small in comparison when I read her recipe for disaster. On the 17th of this month, Joanne found out that her father had terminal cancer and that he had literally days to live. On the 25th he passed away and I want to dedicate this post to Joanne – to say thank you for lightening and brightening my day.
Dear Joanne and family, may G-d hold you in the palm of His hand and bestow upon you the everlasting gift of peace. May the memories of your father be a shining light in days to come, and may he be forever alive in your soul.
I chose this ClemenGold, Lime and Ginger marmalade recipe to be the one I shared today as it is a tart spread and I thought quite perfect for such a sad moment. It reminds us that life is not always sweet, it is not always perfect, and that life is a gift, not to be wasted, but treasured.
