From the Founder:

Welcome to Edition No. 8 of Just a Moment in Food.

Here we all are...two seasons have now passed since March. As autumn approaches, we are more reliant than ever before to technology during this pandemic. Zoom meetings and FaceTime have helped keep some of us in touch with the world and prevent a total shutdown. School, work meetings, workouts, dinner parties are now through a screen.

Making meals, cooking, baking, even ordering delivery to eat at home is still accomplished the old-fashioned, pre-Covid 19 way,...made by us or someone else with our hands, no serious tech needed, whether using new recipes from scratch, re-making familiar ones, fulfilling beloved menu items, defrosting frozen goods, or opening take out containers. Food/grocery delivery workers are busier than ever. Farmers are adjusting, getting the job done. So are the benevolent local food banks taking care of those in need during these times.

It doesn't feel the same outside in public, but it doesn't feel like the ghost town it did when we first started quarantine. It's ironic, however, that the numbers were so small several months ago in comparison to now - but society seems to be out and about, some of us wearing masks, functioning as if this has miraculously gone away. It hasn't. Yet.

It also doesn't feel the same outside as the wildfires here in California have turned up early along with storms and hurricanes across the country with intensity levels matching the reality of global warming and climate change - which used to be an issue before the pandemic struck. It still is. We have lots to work on and probably can better move forward on helping the environment if the administration changes come November.

JAM's previous fall issue was also on food - in the season of cooler temperatures, harvest and Thanksgiving. We wanted to highlight the joy of cooking again...bring focus to how grateful we are for finding simple things to keep us going.

Please continue to stay safe and take care of yourselves and others.

All the best,
Two More Minutes, Inc.
