Every 9/11 is sacred to me, and I choose to show my gratitude -- to firefighters, brave strangers, and pure providence--on this day with edible offerings.
I'm not good at many things but I have the gift of grub--so I bestowed a lot of food today to those far and wide: 8 bowls of pasta with heirloom tomatoes and truffled Pecorino. 21 Banana muffins. 9 bowls of Black Bean-Chorizo Soup. And 6 combo trays of Greek Yogurt and Homemade Granola. Most went to those I know, but 4 treats to strangers.
Man, this town-- it GETS it and more than once I found myself in teary company for all that we have-- but with so much already lost or at risk of slipping away.
Be safe and hold loved ones tight, peeps.
