2021 is OFF and Running...
...into a wall!
Tonight, I was at a bit of a loss for dinner ideas. Until I noticed a few things in the fridge! A package of turkey tenderloins, a bunch of Snow Peas, Sweet Peas, and Carrot, as well as a dozen leftover Brussels Sprouts that haven't been cooked yet.
Each Sprout, I sliced into 4 slivers, popped them into a pan, medium high heat, olive oil and sea salt. Next up, sliced Carrot on the bias, and once there was a decent sear on the Sprouts, into the pan these went. Added a little ginger, fresh ground black pepper, and some lemon. Then, when it was almost ready, tossed in some sweet peas, some fresh turkey broth, and some snow peas. The broth turns to steam and heats the peas!
I extremely convicted tonight, after reading about the measures taken in DC to ensure that trump doesn't get the country into a Nuclear Conflict. Frankly, on one hand, extremely glad that people, including Senior Military in the Chain Of Command, are ensuring that only Lawful and Necessary Orders are carried out. on the other hand, I am disgusted that the GOP has allowed things to deteriorate so far, for so long, that we're even in this situation. All in the pursuit of filling Judges that will vote in favor of Corporations, rather than people or the environment... Ahhhh, well.As I mentioned, terrified that it has come down to placing so many in the chain of command in the situation where, they have to debate and decide, are these orders lawful?
2020... a wild and woolly year, if ever there was one. My entire industry (Special Events) was shut down on 13 March and hasn't been back yet. Personally, I am ok, but so many of my colleagues and friends are struggling with bills, paying for food and rent, medical and health insurance.
To the animals and birds around me
to put more plants in than I take out
And be a good steward for the world around me!
