I hope you are all doing well. What an unbelievable time to be alive.
It’s certainly scary and uncertain times, but I have faith it’s going to be okay. We are at least all in this together.
I don’t want to focus too much on what’s going on in the world here, we have plenty of news stations to take care of that for us. While we will remain vigilant and practice social distancing, my family and I trying to take advantage of this time. We are focusing on each other and valuing this unexpected time we have together, we are decluttering and reducing our waste, and we hope that when things return to somewhat normal we’ll have a better appreciation for each other and the world around us.
The original purpose of this blog was to discuss food and share vegan recipes and products and I will continue that since I need a distraction from everything that’s going on. Thankfully we are still able access grocery stores and purchase fresh produce. We have a decent supply of canned goods and other non perishable goods (and maybe a box of wine) in our basement. I’ve been trying to be more resourceful and creative with my cooking. Now that I’m not packing lunch for work, I’m trying to only make what we will eat for dinner, and utilizing my freezer so I can access frozen veggies, bread, etc. for later. I’ve honestly just been eating dinner these last few days and having some veggies or a piece of toast here and there throughout the day.
This is truly an incredible (and not in a good way) time in history that I’ll be talking to my (hopeful, no pressure boys) grandchildren about. I’ll be back with some recipes later…
