@chefmd, I'm so sorry - and best wishes for your travels, and your father.

 

I myself am on the verge of some kind of breakdown for international travel + family reasons, having JUST returned from a hellish week to the wilds of British Columbia in Canada, where my brother in law has committed suicide, necessitating what has been a very upsetting trip. As a result of the stress, the jetlag, the grief, the shock and the general psychic distress of all combined, my dinners lately have basically consisted of things like this -  a Rum and Rum and Rum and Rum and Raisin; Flor de Cana aged rum, Mount Gay Barbados rum, Sailor Jerry spiced rum, a rounding of treacly Pedro Ximenez, and giant, fat golden raisins that I've been macerating in rhum agricole for nearly 2 years.

One day soon I'll cook again properly, as I struggle to find my new normal.

 

Love and light to you all.
