stuff of substance vs. fluff

As we sat around the table last night, one of the things we discussed was ways we encourage others, within the group and in the world around us.  It was a powerful reminder of the importance of real-life connections.

Especially considering the company I was in, a group of former-strangers-turned-friends.  Different backgrounds and stories, different places in life.  Yet unexpectedly now sharing something special together.  And this monthly ritual of real-life connection is stuff of substance, deep and filling.

Unlike our dessert:  Vanilla Bean Pavlova w/Honey Cream & Berries.  The recipe I used was adapted from THIS ONE on Eat, Live, Run.  I made a few small changes, which included using 4 large egg whites instead of medium and substituting a 1/2 tablespoon of vanilla bean paste for the vanilla bean.

I believe we need a bit of both (substance and fluff) to keep things balanced.
