Out to Lunch

Sometimes, luck and serendipity bring me wonderful and unexpected opportunities to do the work that I value the most (feeding people and creating opportunities, particularly within at-risk populations).  It’s work that takes a lot of time and care, which means that even though I’m still cooking and learning and researching, the actual writing of this blog isn’t happening at the moment.  So I’m off on another hiatus. I’ll be back, because I really love this project, and it’s because I love this project enough to take it seriously that I’m taking a break.  In the meantime, here’s a sample of what I’ve been up to.

I usually avoid posting mixtures of my kid, for a lot of good reasons. But I can't resist this one. He prefers cats to dogs (actually, doesn't really like dogs), but fell in love with this little Pug named Quinn.
