Day 38: a love letter to cumin

7 Feb

Tonight continues my commitment to more love and less fear this year.  For February, I am writing a love letter each day.  Tonight is dedicated to …cumin. 

Dear Cumin:

I didn’t know I loved you.  Until tonight.

You see, it’s been one of those days.  One of those, Mama-Never-Said-There-Would-Be-Days-Like-These sort of days.  And, oh, Mama, it seems like everything has gone wrong today.

From finding a crack in my back molar to cracks in my computer, it seems this day was just not what it was cracked up to be.

Until, along came you, Cumin.
You, my dear Cumin, certifiably cracked me up on my last straw.

I mistakenly thought you were Cinnamon as I dumped you into my oversized cup of hot chocolate (well, my version of hot chocolate made from hot water and cacao powder — my, new, favorite recipe to satiate my chocolate cravings).

And, there I stood in the kitchen crying and laughing all at the same time, dear Cumin, as I stared into my cup of Hot Cumin Chocolate.

Thank you for making me laugh.

Love,
Jamie

P.S.  You don’t taste so bad mixed with a little chocolate.
