Macaroni 23-Jul-2018


Today it is my turn to cook in our household. It is always nice to cook a meal for some people. When I have little inspiration macaroni is a tasty option. When it is prepared freshly it smells good.

Because we eat with four I also prepare a soup and a small chocolate dessert.

With cooking I usually do not make big efforts. I do not study the INTERNET. I check in the supermarket what is affordable. I plan a little. I start the cooking timely to work relaxed.

Preparing the table

Once again I am not great in decorations. With the cooking I like to use some ingredients with nice colours. I may transfer the dishes to a glass bowl or serving plate. I make sure that the table looks orderly and clean.

Dinner time.

Then the miracle happens. Usually people enjoy the foods I present.

So simple can it be.

Not always so simple.

In the gospel of Saint Mark (11:17) it says:

We played the flute for you,
and you wouldn't dance;
we sang dirges,
and you wouldn't be mourners.

For John came, neither eating nor drinking,
and they say, "He is possessed."
The Son of Man came, eating and drinking,
and they say, "Look, a glutton and a drunkard,
a friend of tax collector and sinners."

The problem explained:

With eating food, we know how to eat.

When Jesus came with good news from God
the 'wise' would not dance.

When John the Baptist preached 'repentance',
the 'wise' didn't not respond and repent.

Why is it hard to respond to what we know as beneficial?
