Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay.

Meatless Monday: Pantry Pasta with Garlic and Green Olives


This meatless recipe is the basic version of a dish I make all the time. I'm not a huge fan of tomato-based pasta sauce, so I frequently toss fresh-cooked pasta with butter or olive oil and go from there by adding anything I want like olives, artichoke hearts, cheese, and seafood or grilled chicken breast.

I named it Pantry Pasta because I literally use whatever I have in my pantry that could go well with pasta. This dish is so easy to make, it really doesn't require a recipe. Simply boil your pasta as usual, drain and return to the pot, then toss in the oil (or butter if you prefer) and stir in the toppings. I love using stuffed green olives simply because I always have them on hand.

If you want to make this meatless dish healthier, use a veggie pasta and toss with fresh garden veggies or cooked greens. Add in kale or spinach to the boiling pasta water for the last minute or two. To make it a meaty pasta dish, add cubed chicken breast or shrimp by pan searing them in a skillet and cooking thoroughly before adding them to the noodles. Enjoy!

    I do like tomato sauce with pasta, so I'd be inclined to add it in.
