It was a tough day for me watching the international crisis unfold. Packing for Fire Island.

We need to cry out for justice, equality, against gender discrimination, identity, race and humanity. Sorry to be so political on a cooking blog but I am compelled to a least tell you what I am feeling as I write this.

Watching the events today as I was cooking it was frightening.
