Full Moon Weekend

Zoom fatigued with migraine headache or not, who would pass this up?

Making Gnocchi from scratch ! Invited to a Fundraising event for “Fund Her” www.fundher.org (Please learn about them:)
As recommended, pairing with light Merlot (actually most dry whites match quite nicely and if red, Syrah was also recommended) – first time ever learning and making Gnocchi from scratch – Tat-taaaa a “Lemon Ricotta Gnocchi with Truffle & Brown Butter Sage Sauce” – proceeds from the fundraiser goes to FundHer, a political action commmittee which supports progressive woman running as political candidates – a cause that resonates with me/us; and part of the proceeds goes to give a meal to an essential healthcare worker as well ! What a creative group of women in our community – Thank you A:) When there’s so many depressing news; there’s even a sense of feeling of guilt in doing something fun – where there is so much suffering in this world. Yet, I think it’s best to keep up our heart OPEN with joyful event like this so that you yourself is not depleted and darkened like soot, burned out. Spark of joy needed for strength and resiliancy.
A Kind and generous hearted friend brought all these veggies over – including the green/golden hybrid squash, so unique, harvested from her garden. Just astounded with the rainbow of colors, her warm heart just as bright, and … thankful to the farmworkers bringing these to us in spite of the smoke and Covid.

Wondering what I can do to show my gratitude in return…

There are over 14,000 firefighters deployed to battle the wildfires of California. What can we do to help in our small ways to show support and appreciation. To our nurses, healthcare & frontline essential workers. How can I make a difference in my small way without adding to that Covid stats.

Currentl Stats:
