A thought at dinner

“Ruling a large kingdom,” said Lao-Tse, “is like cooking a small fish.”

That’s on p. 402 of my Joy of Cooking, which I just read to get away from political news. The idea is that both ruling and cooking, in this case, must be approached discreetly and tenderly.

Indeed. So now I will decorate fresh Haddock fillets with herbs, lemon juice, and bread crumbs, add some broccoli and kale from the garden, and sit down to think about things.

Sweet evening, my friends.
