Resilience and Kale Rainbow Slaw

by Joanne on April 19, 2013

From Stanton Samenow, a forensic psychologist and author of the 2004 book Inside the Criminal Mind. "They seem to have an unfathomable ability to shut off knowledge of the consequences, of the difference between right and wrong.

There exists among us monsters.  It’s a scary world.  We cannot allow fear to get the better of us and stop us from living.  It’s our life. It’s our right to love, laugh, and advance our lives in the way we choose.  No one has the right to take it all away and they can’t unless we let them. 

I won’t let them.  Will you?

The Apple Crumbles kitchen is currently in a state of chaos.  It is being torn down only to be rebuilt, better and stronger  – like the Six Million Dollar Man: Better than he was before.  Better, Stronger, Faster .   

Ted and I, Shane and Zoey are barred from the kitchen. We have a tiny bar sink.  The refrigerator has been move to the sunroom. We have a toaster oven, microwave and grill for cooking. You can’t imagine how lost I am without my kitchen. 

In the meantime, I’ll post as many back log recipes as I have ferreted away.  They might not be seasonal but they are all pretty good.  Here’s the first:  Kale and Rainbow Slaw.

Tangy, crunchy, healthy, green and bright. Doesn’t it sound like the perfect slaw?

      The crazy thing is how some, like the younger brother, can seem like normal people who would never do something like this except– except for what? Hard to know.

      On your own kitchen and the effect it has on your blogging: I’m hoping you get your kitchen back soon, I’ve heard from so many friends how disruptive a kitchen remodel can be. And I know how it is when something disrupts your blogging, whether it’s a broken camera or a torn-up kitchen. Gets rid of that backlog of drafts, doesn’t it?
