Savory, sweet and just a little bit spicy, this paleo curried apple pork is an easy family dinner.
I'm sitting on my bed in a sunbeam. It is still a little chilly outside, but the sun through the window is glorious. It makes it easy to forget the world outside.
And what a world it is: Covid-19 is sweeping across the globe leaving a wide wake of fear and uncertainty. Still uncertain how you need to prepare? Raj has some sage advice for you, in this post. Don't worry you won't need any extra TP for it!
I think we will all be okay.
I used to have a card on my fridge that said: “Everything will be okay in the end. If it is not okay, it is not the end.” It is very real and uncomfortable right now, it is hard to keep hope alive. We can only do what we can do, we have to remain hopeful.
Wash your hands, cough into an arm or elbow, keep physical space between us, stay home if you can. Check-in via phone, video or email with friends and family.
Disconnect, play some music and give the news and social media a break.
Not much is more cathartic for me than making a big mess in the kitchen while listening to some music.
Teach your kids to cook: this will be an exercise in patience, but I bet it will be one of their favorite memories when they are grown and you are long gone. Certainly, my fave childhood memories are from baking and cooking with parents, grandparents, and even my Great Granny. Maybe just call great granny this time, and have her walk you thru baking your favorite dish.
