The feeding and eating of the Now-Loved Soup went very well-- besides an apparent lack of salt in the soup. (How appropriate!) Everyone seemed to be in good spirits and smiling.

In Preparation...

I dutifully loved all of the ingredients that went into the Loved Soup, one vegetable at a time...

Cooking Loveless, but now Loved Alphabet soup

For the opening reception of the No Gallery Left Behind Show, I was lucky and grateful to receive three matching CrockPots (from 3 different people! how strange!) for the cooking of the Loved Soup. Not having much experience with Crock Pots, however, I ran into the issue of not being able to cook the pasta at the gallery. Instead, I cooked it at my gracious host, Sarah Blyth-Stephens's house. Thank you very much for your kitchen, Sarah!

Apparently, jade (the precious stone) is associated with the heart chakra. So, to remind my alphabet soup friends that I love them all the time, I attached jade stones to the bottoms of the bowls that the pasta is in.
Green is also generally associated with the heart chakra-- which explains my choice of bowls for my almost-loved pasta letters.
Another gem relating the heart is rose quartz.

Writing Love Letters

I decided that it would be nice for the pasta to have some company while I went home when the gallery closed, so I left it notes over the last couple days. The letters were composed to the individual components of the alphabet pasta. Here is an example of what was written, followed (of course) by a couple pictures.

Dear and Darling Y's,
I adore you. You are graceful and beautiful and I think the world of you. I want you to know that I appreciate not only your being here with me but also all it took for you to get here. This may seem out of the blue, since I had previously discarded you, but I assure you it comes with a most sincere heart. Thank you so very much! I love you!
