A glorious Sunday

I oftentimes wonder if my staunchly conservative father thinks us crazy folk at Neshoba are two steps away from establishing our own vegan, organic, and free trade commune.  That or some of us may be– gasp!– socialists.   Either way it’s always a delight when he comes to church with me.  We must not have terrified him too much with our quest for liberal world domination because this isn’t the first time he’s been my guest of honor.  Love you, Dad.

Sunday’s sermon:  “The Man Nobody Knows”

Who was this Jesus guy about whom we make such a hullabaloo?  Why was his birth important?  What does his message have to do with Unitarian Universalism?  Why Christmas?

It’s not in our faith tradition to proselytize.  But I’m always thrilled to share with people how important UU is to me, so please feel free to message me if you’d like to have that discussion.  Or better yet, check it out for yourself, at the Neshoba website.

All that religious fervor works up quite the appetite.  Tatum made her restaurant debut at Tao Too in Germantown.  I cannot recommend it enough.  Kelsey Allen and Tom Billings— does this place ring a bell to y’all?  😉

Frontrunner for the best soup I've ever eaten

Thai Tom Kha Kai is nothing short of a miracle.  Coconut milk soup with chicken, mushrooms, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and lemon grass served with rice noodles.  Slightly spicy and darn near perfection.

You know it's a good meal when you fling your foot on the table.

I’m so grateful for every second I have with my precious daughter.  That will be my focus this holiday season….

 

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,

About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
