This week nothing seems to be going right. From the littlest of things (my new phone fell in a toilet), to the biggest of things (two words: Election Night). I woke up this morning still dazed from the late night unfolding of news, and as I sit here I don’t know how to move forward. I need to get to work, but my work involves making food and taking pictures of food, which seems so very trivial right now. Like, if I had posted a recipe this morning and said, “hey, it’s a brand new day, make this broccoli quinoa dish!” I just didn’t know how to do that and actually feel good about it.
But the thing is, no matter whether you woke up this morning devastated or elated, there are still basic things that have to continue in order for us to stay alive. They are:
Breathing (see above)
Drinking (bet you did some of that last night)
Well, see, I can help with the eating part. And my little contribution to this brave new world that is upon us can be food that helps you feel a little better when you just don’t know what to do. So in a couple of days I will post a recipe and say, “hey, it’s a brand new day, make this broccoli quinoa dish!”, and it won’t feel like enough, but I’ll do it anyway. Because we have to keep moving forward. With love. And respect. And understanding. And broccoli.
