Post 4: Jessica Fechtor’s Recovery Ziti

Tonight Maribeth and Flora use a recipe for a pasta dish presented in a new book by Ms. Fechtor, titled “Stir”. It is a book written by a woman in recovery from a brain aneurysm and subsequent brain surgery. We had 6 for dinner and this provided a nice diversion to a day filled with some frustrations, anticipations of an important meeting concerning Maribeth’s future career opportunities in science, and a few of the kids scattered across town. Sitting down at a meal together is a necessary component for family bonding, and in a year like this, a break from trying to deal with all of the many fragmenting elements of several dynamic and overlapping lives and their individual events.

I am the husband and father of a lovely family of 5, living in the Greenwood area of Seattle. We are all recovering from the effects of encephalitis having struck our lovely Wife/Mom. We are coming along, together, to recovery in many ways. We have been broken, but not destroyed! Finding our bond of love through cooking and eating together, and with friends, we will recover, stronger together than before!
