The first few days of Spring have been all about savoring.
We had my father in law in town from New Zealand and soaked up every minute of family time we could.
No agenda. No rush. No plan. No worries.
That’s the one of the many things I really enjoy about these Crazy Cotters. There will never be a plan. There will never be a “rush” of the day. We spent hours around the table eating good food, sharing stories, and catching up.
The weather was perfect to show him around the trails, the evenings last longer so we could sit outside and chat over a glass (or 2) of wine, and I couldn’t help but realize how much I (we) needed to just step back from life’s “agenda” and enjoy/savor the time we had now.
Maybe that’s the whole point of the “spring forward” time change anyway. To savor the last bit of day together…………. supper.
sup•per (ˈsʌp ər)
1. the evening meal, often the principal meal of the day. supper – a social gathering where a light evening meal is served;
Just the word in itself makes me feel at home.
So maybe your supper is just two people, maybe it’s 10! Maybe it’s crazy loud and chatty. Maybe it’s calm and collected. Either way, it’s about the time and the people you share it with, am I right?
The last day my father in law was here, we grilled out. He made his famous curry ribs (which I’ve begged him for recipe on multiple occasions), and I prepared a ginger and garlic haddock fillets. The meal, of course, was delicious, but the supper itself was savored for hours!
Garlic and Ginger Spiced Haddock Recipe- quick version
- Fresh Haddock or other white fish fillet
- sea salt
- 1 tablespoon chipped garlic
- olive oil
- 2 teaspoon ginger spice
- balsamic vinegar
- crushed black pepper
Mix together ¼ cup oil, 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, and your spices. Whisk and then pour over fillets (about 2 fillets). You can also marinate them in the mixture for 20 minutes if preferred. Bake or Grill at 425F to 450F for about 10 minutes or less. Depends on how thick your fish it. 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Once removed, place on steamed spinach and add fresh avocado. Add more crushed pepper is desired.
Here are a few of my favorite suppers to savor this spring! Each unique and full of flavor!

Here’s a great devotional about Balance. It really put things in perspective for me this week.
“I think God has already outlined in scripture His secret for finding balance and what our priorities are to be. If we don’t start our big dreams, goals and plans for life or the day by resting in Him and seeking His priorities first we quickly wear out and stop bearing fruit.”
