    Food in isolation

    I made Jamie Oliver's Eggplant Parmesan tonight to bring to some friends tomorrow, one of whom is anxiously awaiting biopsy results. This recipe bakes the eggplant instead of breading and frying, and it is delicious. https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1901-jamie-olivers-eggplant-parmesan

When I first went to WFH it took me a good 6 months to a year to adjust. There are a lot of potential distractions at home, and you need to...

    Panic Shopping and Shortages and Kindness

    The good: my elderly parents (87 and 91), who live in a condo, opened their door to find two canisters of Lysol wipes, dropped off by a neighbor. Also good: got an email blast from a neighbor offering to shop for any elderly or high risk people in the neighborhood. It's heartwarming to see...

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7
