Never quite follows the recipe. Doesn't really measure. Tastes with her fingers. Somehow, it always works.

Sometimes, things happen. Things you can’t explain, can’t fix, can’t change. Bad things. Things that bring hurt, loss, pain to people.
Home baseWords are inadequate. Feelings of helplessness, of being lost, of not knowing where to turn abound. But not for me. I know where to go.  Food is one of the few things in whose power, I am absolutely confident. I believe in the power of food.
ComfWhile nothing I can say will bring her back, while I can’t bring everyone who misses her a plate of food and a hug, at least for now, one person is breathing easier. At least I can give him that.

Safety on a Plate

And on Saturday, or whenever he gets on a plane for hometown-ville, I can give him cookies. To have and to share. I can’t be there, but at least my portable version of  a hug can go on the plane, can be passed around, to people I don’t even know, not just the ones I do.
