CoronaBlog 2020

In a stunning turn of world events…

We are in a semi-quarantined world now. The virus that almost killed my wife (Encephalitis) has many an evil cousin, and unbeknownst and unforeseen by mankind… It has risen.

A novel Corona virus, named Covid-19, has brought fear, illness and death to our planet. Quickly, suddenly, we are in shock.

We are going to hang on, semi-seclusionary, and survive this invader one day, one week, one month at a time. Our family has been surrounded by the love, care and generosity of gift and spirit for the last year and a half… And this round, Maribeth has risen from the depths of viral attack to fight this battle with all of us…

Let us begin, a closer-knit and stronger family now, in our kitchen, in our community and in our city. May we bless as we have been blessed. May we give back as we have been gifted these past 18 months. It may sound like exaggeration, hyperbole, fiction…. But this is real. Well.

Well, if we are going to be stuck together in small groups, let the bonding begin. And what better way than cooking together…

Imogene’s Orange Chicken!!!

Re ady to plate…waiting for rice. Notice clorox wipes – always now
Leave space for the chicken pieces to fry
Toasted sesame and green onions. Add pepper flakes to heat it up.

MB and Imogene did most of the work. Dad directed, chopped and dropped in the oil. MB still a little tentative around boiling oil. Then, who isn’t?!

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!
