Simply Delicious And Soothing For A Difficult Day
Our children are safe. The bad guy was found out before he had the chance to do any harm. It’s a happy ending to a chilling day. Shortly after our daughter went to school at HHS this morning we received a notice from school administrators that they had been alerted there was a shooting threat. The school went on lockdown. The police took matters in hand. And we waited. By 2:30 it was over and we are so grateful. So grateful not to have become another statistic in this crazy wave of violence in America’s schools, against America’s children. Last week the kids at our high school walked out, peacefully and with the support of the Upper Valley community, to protest school violence. Today they faced that threat is real and their actions to work to end school violence are welcome and strong and oh so necessary. Another community today, in Maryland, was not as lucky. They lost two children to gun violence and the perpetrator died, as well. My heart goes out to each and every person that was touched and hurt by the violence.
Let’s keep the pressure on. Let’s work to end the violence. Let’s work toward common sense gun laws. Let’s love our kids and make sure they know, every day, that we stand with them until they are heard and the senseless violence ends.
Let's remember the beauty around us.
It seems almost silly to write about food today, but baking soothes me and nurtures my family so it was a good thing to do while we waited.
These Whole Wheat English Muffins are super simple to make and a nice change from the store-bought variety. The texture is slightly different than a traditional English muffin, no doubt because this recipe doesn’t call for a sourdough starter, but they’re dense and flavorful nonetheless. Lightly toasted, with a pat of butter, and a cup of coffee—they are a perfect way to start your day and ease your mind.
I look forward to seeing you in my kitchen, gathering flavors, soon.
