Jamie’s BLOG – DAY 197 :: beauty is in the eye of a watermelon jalapeno mojito

14 Jul

Tonight’s blog is easy. I mean, really, how hard is it to find something beautiful when you are served THIS:

It a Watermelon Jalapeño Mojito from Justin’s Test Kitchen — aka the man I live with, the love of my life, the boy who loves to cook. He always had. He once made me a dish of shrimp fettuccuni — at age seventeen — and boy, was I impressed.

I still am.

He brings me things to taste, sliding a spoon under my nose with the announcement of, “Try this!” They are like little gifts, each one. His form of cookery is like watching beauty unfold. He loves it, that’s all. He does it for the love of flavor and food — to create and to share with me.

Someone we grew up with recently posted this after seeing Justin’s latest creation, “I thought JJ was the lucky one … I guess I was wrong.”

Well, yes, Scott, you were wrong.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder… the beholder of a mojito, which is really a gift, that comes from a place of love, that ought to be shared.

Cheers to that.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
