(Late) Weekend Reminder

Weekend Reading | The Full Helping

Hi all. Didn’t get around to posting weekend reading yesterday. I found out in the morning that someone close to my mom and me had passed away unexpectedly. I’ve been focusing on supporting my mother however I can.

For today, I’m offering you the reminder that I’ve given to myself: take care of yourselves and your loved ones, focus on the present, and find gratitude where you can. I’ll be back later this week.

  2. Hi Gena,

    Condolences to you and your mother during this healing time for her. XXX

  3. So sorry to hear of your loss. My best to your mom.
    If you don’t post, I just re-read old posts with a cozy cup of tea. There’s usually some nugget I missed or didn’t fully absorb, and finding recipes again is like seeing old friends.

Steven and I are winding up a few weekends of day trips and overnights with family, and I’m in the midst of two big work projects and my first RD class (Food Safety and Management–not the most scintillating, but at least it’s going quickly).

This was one of those weeks in which nothing, big or small, went according to plan. From travel delays and disastrous commutes to missed deadlines and forgotten emails, it all felt like a mess. Funnily enough, I was OK with it. It’s funny only because I don’t typically handle curveballs well. Anything that reinforces my lack of control tends to addle me at best, freak me out at worst. This week, though, the rarest of things happened, which is that I greeted all…

I had every intention of sharing some food this week, but blogging (and a bunch of other things) got put on the back burner. My mom had a total knee replacement, so I’ve been pitching in at her place, keeping her fridge stocked and doing my best to be helpful in other, small ways. She’s healing well, giving PT all of her effort and attention, and I know she’ll be up and about in no time. Being by her side brought up a…

Well. I’m really so touched by all of the excitement about my book announcement. Thank you, friends. To everyone who pre-ordered or is considering it, I hope you’ll be pleased. And I can’t wait to share more news about the book and its publication with you as the next two months go by. For now, it’s back to weekend reading as usual. Since it’s Easter Sunday, I thought it would be appropriate to begin with this gorgeous, authentic, and traditional braided Easter wreath…
