This pandemic has been tough. Being alone, isolated has been difficult. Most mornings I ask myself, “What you going to do today Jude?”
In the beginning I was full of purpose. I made two flower planters, painted the trim on the garage. But slowly a heavy blanket of ennui encased me. The voice in my head kept repeating, “Why bother?”
That’s why I was so happy that my family suggested that we cook together, ‘pandemic together’, aka Zoom or Skype.
Finally, a project that involved people, real people.
I wanted to show how easy some meals can be. Lesson one started with this chop and dump recipe. It’s quite versatile in that you can add just about anything. The first time I made it I put it over arugula, many in my family put it over pasta. The choice is yours.
Another bonus is that all the ingredients are readily found at Trader Joe’s.
I hope you have as much fun as we did making it.
