Ah, it’s been awhile. Actually it’s been a really long time since I’ve posted anything. Last week, as we know, involved the terrible bombings at the Boston Marathon and the capture of the responsible individuals. I know my break was extensive, but I find myself extremely emotional during times of immense violence that the thought of talking about recipes and my trials and tribulations in the kitchen (topics which I am extremely passionate about) did not seem right for the mood that the entire country was feeling.
Meg and I had this discussion that the internet, television, and media in general are used as escape methods. We watch certain television shows to escape from the issues we face in our own life. The same goes for the internet. That’s why many people continued on with their lives during those trying times; to escape from that which they could not control or even understand. I can accept that, but I’m not that type of person. I immense myself solely in the lives of others (mostly because I am more concerned with other people’s happiness than my own) that anything that seems important to me, at the time, is irrelevant. Last week was a testament to that and I hope you can understand why I had to step out of the kitchen for a few days.
My thoughts and prayers are still with those who have been affected by last week’s tragic events, but justice will come and soon we will get answers to why these acts were committed.
As for now, let’s discuss the reason I have returned: Pizza. Yep, there I said it. Pizza. One of the greatest gifts to ever grace this world we live on, in its crusty, cheesy, saucy, glory. Pizza.
