Gotta’ love it!
That little jazz-of-pizzazz which delights the dish, sparkles the eyes with a surprise, and magnifies the meal in a moment. Yes, good garnish makes any ordinary dish extraordinarily spectacular in every possible way!
Garnish - defined by Websters Dictionary is “to decorate (food) with something that adds color or flavor.”
This past week I was doing a radio show with host of the “Hatched Egg”, Amy Furbee, and we were talking about the issue of becoming who we associate with. Surrounding yourself with positive or negative people, definitely has an effect on YOU, whether you want it to or not.
Stand next to perfume or manure long enough,
and guess how you’ll soon be smelling?!
Suddenly, Amy interjected,
“It’s like my husband and I always say – “Is that person Good Garnish?”
WOW! I love that analogy – because it resonates truth beyond compare.
The people you chose to associate with, are either good garnish in a true blue right side up world, or distasteful wilted garnish in a green sky upside down world. You must decide what you will allow by your side.
A little bit of garnish, possess a powerful impact on what the whole plate looks like. Think about how just a little piece of something, makes such an enormous difference on the larger portion. Doesn’t the concept make you pause and reflect?
Next time you feel agitated around someone, or perhaps just a little confused, ask yourself, “Is this person”Good Garnish”in my life?”
You may decide you need a different ornament decorating your sustenance. If you’re plate is already full, adding even the smallest sour flavor could be a major killer tipping point which destroys your whole meal.
Who is Good or Bad garnish in your life today? Are you Good Garnish for the people you meet?
You are what you eat. Bon appetite… and Cheers!This content will be shown after all post
