Week Twenty-eight: If you follow any sort of social media or news you probably get the sense that things here in the US are a bit tense. It seems like everyone everywhere is on edge. I had a friend ask I had considered prepping for my family. Not, really I mean we have plenty of food in our refrigerator and pantry. Then I realized they were talking about guns, ammunition, and a to-go bag. Wow! That caught me by surprise. I guess more and more people are making plans for election day and there after.
I will keep doing what I have been doing in being my little ray of sunshine (or as well as I can be) in the world. My family is a bit anxious but we will keep going. I am trying to limit the news, social media (other than my blog!), and other negative influences. How are you all feeling where you are?
I think part of why I am digging into old recipes is they remind me of simple times. But, when I start reading about why they were made they really are not the simpler times we think of. Canned soups and vegetables were used to save time for women returning to the work force that also wanted to still have a hot meal on the table for their family. Shortages of butter and eggs during the war lead to the creation of Crazy Cakes with no butter, milk, or eggs. I wonder if one day our children will look back at this time of Covid-19 and political turmoil with the rose colored glasses we look back with?
