I just wanted to write a little update on what has been happening at In The Kitchen with Johnna Rose, and like a true farm girl fashion I am writing this while drinking coffee at the kitchen table. In my family the kitchen table is where we had family meetings, meals, wrote out bills and was the center of the house.
I hope all is well with you and your family and that everyone is safe during these crazy times! My family in Minnesota is safe and sound at home right now, except those who are considered essential employees. No, we are not nurse’s or doctor’s, but work in manufacturing from building/fixing semi-trailers to transport supplies to the stores, cleaning nursing homes, and like myself working in a food processing plant to ensure that there is food in the grocery store. We are all tired, but continue to work to provide for our communities and country.
Yes, these times are weird right now. Just 2 months ago, there was food on the shelves in the local grocery stores, no one wearing masks and things were “normal”. I don’t know if our way of life is going to be going back to normal, but all we can do is embrace the new. I know I am doing all that I can to embrace this new environment we are living in by:
- Wearing a face mask while out in public.
- Reducing my trips to the grocery store.
- Making my truck bed and tailgate a dirty zone where I sanitize packaging prior to bringing it into the house.
During this time, I have been working on content for you all with everyday ingredients that you probably have in your pantry right now. My mission during this time is to create health, simple recipes that do not require a ton of ingredients and that you would probably have them on hand (no need to go out to the grocery store). A couple of sneak peak recipes are a Homemade Hamburger Hotdish, Banana Bread Muffins, and a Italian Lemon Chicken Rub :)/ If there is anything recipe that you would like to work on, or would like to see more of please let me know. Comment or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy and Stay Sanitized!
