With next week being the big holiday here for being thankful and gathering around food with family and friends, I couldn’t ignore what’s happening in our world right now. I’ve been looking for words, but there really isn’t anything I can say that will do the state of things any justice. I just wanted to address that stuff is kind of crappy for a lot of people right now and for lack of a better word, it sucks. I’ve been heartsick, and that’s just from thinking about things. I’m not even living it. I try not to get too serious and emotional in this space because that’s just not what this blog is about. I’m still going to share some links, because even if things like this feel trivial in the grand scheme, gathering around food and sharing with people we love is still important.
