Good afternoon, all.
I was advised to write everything down as I see it during this quarantine. It's been about five days since then and it's now been called for a stay home order. This means that nobody leaves their home for 30 days, unless it's to go to work and the grocery store. Fortunately, this is meant to include restaurants, so we're going to hopefully be able to be open. I don't know what will happen, but I do know this.
I'm going to be stuck home now, so this means I'll be writing now.
I plan to write more often, with tips and tricks on how to run a house and not lose your sanity during this time.
It March 21st, first day of spring, and I spent the day with my husband, having a picnic out of the back of my car. We drove to Clinton Lake, I saw a bed of land snail shells. We watched the water and ate sandwiches and chips. This is likely the last normal day I'll have in at least 30 days, and I'm sure that I am not alone.
I've learned a lot over my last decade in the restaurant industry, and I want to share what ever knowledge I can with you about surviving on a razor-thin margin of a budget. Here's what I'll pledge to you now:
Put the recipe first, and then put the story. If you feel like reading that while your stuff is cooking, awesome. If not, just like and comment on my post and tell me what you want to see next.
I'll put whatever survival stuff I can and update when I can.
You're not alone out here.
