A Thrill of Hope, the Weary World Rejoices

Cooks can develop affection for strange gadgets, like this giant pan that is deep and wide enough to do all sorts of interesting one pot meals, including this one.  It has replaced my wok for even cooking when needed.  Chicken breast with mushrooms, onions and broccoli rabe with, of course tons of garlic, red pepper flakes, soy sauce and sesame oil.  I put mine over brown rice and doused it with indecent amounts of garlic chili sauce.  
My sister and I shared pics of our tiny Christmas trees for 2021, the year that was but wasn't. It came and went slowly and ultra fast somehow.  It was incredible and yet also pretty horrible at times.  It was cruel but so giving in other ways.  I guess in hindsight I am happy we can stand at the other end of these tough years and know we didn't just get through it, but suffered through the suffering and still wake up excited for the next one and are hopefully better people for it.   But yeah, my holiday decorating game was super weak.

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
