At Queen of the Castle Recipes, Lynn has graciously allowed me to share a few thoughts on food and slowing down. I included two European recipes, because from my visits to Belgium and France, I get the idea that they know how to slow down. About Belgium, I wrote:
[E]veryone in the country knows how to stop mid-morning and enjoy a leisurely coffee break. In fact, this might come as a shock, but vehicles in Belgium don’t come with standard cupholders … maybe Belgians would rather wait until they can sit down at home or a café and truly enjoy sipping it while nibbling a Speculoo cookie. I suppose we could argue that the caffeine from all that coffee negates their slow-down tendencies, but in general, Belgians seem to know how to hit the pause button.
2. High Calling Blogs
If you’ve never been to HighCallingBlogs.com, you’re in for a treat. Not because of what I’ve written, though I did just publish an article for their “family” category, but because the bloggers in this online community are posting wonderful material covering a wide range of topics, including work, faith, and culture, as well as family. There are featured blogs and then you could spend weeks visiting those in the broader network.3.
