I had a good day by all accounts. I got some work done. I felt good about the work. Our country welcomed in a new administration with no major incidents, something that has been worrying me for a while. That administration made some policy moves that I welcome. Everything was going just fine. Then I … Continue reading Sometimes It All Falls Apart and That’s OK
It's been another week of quarantining and yes, I'm still cooking. This week, my husband looked at the meal plan and asked me very nicely not to change anything about it. I, of course, did, but only with one dinner, and it was a huge hit. Thursday (1/14) - We started the day with poached … Continue reading Quarantine Week 42

I did a separate blog on the superstitions associated with this meal, so I won't go … Continue reading New Year’s Day Dinner 2021
I am not much of a traditionalist, but this New Year's Day felt like the time to try a little.
I know I wrote a heartfelt "letter" to all my readers last week and may have even suggested I would not have another post in 2020, but I just couldn't resist. Don't worry, I am not going to do another reflection on this incredibly weird, sometimes very sad, sometimes infuriating year. Instead, I want to … Continue reading Adiós 2020!
Christmas was a little different this year, but we still managed to make some cherished memories and great food.
Not being able to cook a big dinner for my family and friends because of Covid definitely sucks. However, we have found a few ways to cope this year. One of my major ways is to prepare a full dinner for my vegan daughter, Mel, who lives just a few miles away, and deliver it … Continue reading Merry Vegan Christmas!
