Lila channeled Martin Buber in this poem.
I spent many years
Trying to learn what is happiness?
Library books I checked out
I finally found the meaning
Happiness is other
And I had it all along.
You may want to try these Old School Spinach Balls. Yeah, there’s breadcrumbs and butter, but you don’t have to eat the entire batch!
Pretend you’re at a fancy party, like your 40th high school class reunion held at the bowling alley, and you just spotted Mark, the guy you had a crush on, who asked your best friend to the 1975 prom instead of you, and then married her and they now have 3 beautiful children, and you acted like it was all okay at the prom, because you never had the guts to tell anyone of your true feelings. And no, that didn’t happen to me! Maybe I’ll have one more Spinach Ball, but that’s it!
Tools You’ll Need:
Cookie sheet- (I like to line my cookie sheets with parchment paper)
1 Package chopped spinach (10 oz)
1 Cup dried breadcrumbs
1 egg beaten
1 small onion minced
1 teaspoon garlic powder
¼ Cup butter melted
¼ Cup Parmesan cheese
Combine all ingredients. Chill for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Preheat oven to 325˚. Roll into small balls (walnut to golf ball size depending on preference). Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325˚ for 20-25 minutes until lightly brown and firm to the touch.
