The Early Days of COVID-19 Shelter At Home

Foodie Followers:

As each and every one of us are impacted in some way by the COVID-19 pandemic, anxiety abounds at the present time.  So much is unknown, so much is scary; we are all trying to keep our families and ourselves safe and healthy.  Today is day 3 of the mandatory three-week Stay At Home order in Michigan, which is similar to the rest of the US and the entire globe.

Please keep safe, Foodies.  We are in this together.

One of the few activities we are allowed to partake in is going to the grocery store.  Understandably, many store shelves and fresh foods can be scarce.  Simplicity and creativity may be necessary in the coming weeks and months.

I made this hearty, simple and comforting cabbage roll soup yesterday.

Keep calm and carry on, everyone! This too, shall pass.
