Maureen: The world is in lockdown, but we’re still going to cook. Because we can’t do much, but we can feed our families.
Maureen: It seems like an odd time to be reviewing cookbooks, so we decided to take off for the forseeable future and just highlight recipes we love or that we’re cooking right now. It seems a little bit frivolous.
Kirstin: At the same time, cooking is such a huge thing.
Maureen: It certainly is one way to keep us all sane.
Kirstin: I keep getting distracted while I cook, but I know I will get there.
Maureen: But we’re all going to have to figure out how to cook without being able to nip out to shop and get certain ingredients. Or if we’re running low on stuff. This is going to be hard, especially since that’s how I cook– deciding on the day and then hitting the shops for what I need.
Kirstin: It’s like playing music. I can’t just sit at the piano and make it up. I need the sheet of music in front of me.
Maureen: The plan this month is to post stuff that’s getting us through this, from cookbooks we’ve already done. Whatever is going to get us through all of this. Who knows how long it will last, so Lockdown 2020 might (or probably will) be longer than one month long.
Kirstin: We have plenty of cookbooks in our house, so we might find new classics, too. Let’s get through this together.
Maureen: Stay healthy! Stay safe!
