Independence Day! (Depending on where you live, I guess and your status or non-status as a citizen). It’s so complicated and full of angst, this holiday, so I am choosing to celebrate it as Charred Foods Day. If you are a vegan, no problem. Char up some aubergines on the grill. Pescatarians, get after some salmon. Vegetarians, well, you know what to do.
This isn’t a holiday that we celebrate thoughtfully, so I’m happy to take a break from being my best self and revel in the baser desires I have around cheese and wine and napping during the day time. I full on get that independence is a thing and a thing we should celebrate, but post-BREXIT and current-TRUMPness have me in the mindset of celebrating this 4th of July with a couple of hours of Netflix, some scriggle time with Russell Jenkins, and filming knitting tutorials for Make.Do. all day. #freedom
