Today(being tuesday) I am a person of presence in a Mom and teens day for incarcerated women and their teen children.
I made these journals for the women, and am praying they will be able to take them back into the prison.
I'm also bring cookies, and I'm making several kinds- these are basic ginger snaps.
My beverage of choice today is oat straw with fresh turmeric and ginger.
The turmeric from Full Circle Farm, gets more colorful when you cut it.
The ginger from Ol' Turtle Farm is just one of the most amazing and flavorful veggies you have ever seen, or eaten, grown by master grower Eileen.
So, this brings us to the dilemma.
Y'all know my phood philosophy.
My time with the women and teens, will include booth snacks, lunch and dinner, where, honesty I'm expecting to not want to eat anything, except my snacks.
My bottom line is if asked to bring something I bring what I would eat, and I can make snacks that will pass in popular culture.
This event in particular is not about me. It's about making a safe and enjoyable environment for visitation for families.
It's a time for me to learn, rather than to teach.
Everyone learns, everyone teaches.
That being said, I still have to put food on my plate and make my best effort to look like I am eating it.
You get the picture.
