In the midst of a world wide pandemic, we get back to basics. Forgoing pre-made meals and restaurant food, we head to the kitchen pantry. We think about the food pyramid and plan meals accordingly.
The pantry holds many food groups, but not the most important …fresh fruits and vegetables. Fortunately, gardening in Coastal Georgia, the fresh greens are still producing.
Pesto, made from last summer’s basil bounty, was pulled from the freezer for a favorite ravioli dish. Is anyone else baking bread? This one is from The Craftsman’s Cook Book. My first job out of college was with the Museum of Contemporary Crafts in New York. The crafts movement was at its peak, and young people were toting peace, love, and back to the basics. Here we are again, and this bread fits my mood.
If I am not isolated in our home, you will find me exploring the yard. Spring has arrived, oblivious to Covid19. There is much beauty to be found. Just remember to keep washing your hands, stay close to the natural world but far from humans…at least 6 feet apart.
What are you doing in isolation?
