Haiti

I know it's been quiet around here - very quiet. I've been focusing on other projects this month (as well as the birthday explosion... hey, January people, can you spread out your birthdays a little more? ;) ) and haven't been as creative in the kitchen as I generally like to be.

So for today, I don't have a recipe for you. But because of the earthquake in Haiti, the devastation of which we can unfortunately relate to all too well here in Los Angeles, I wanted to link to Chris Sacca's excellent post on how we can help the relief efforts. I feel lucky that A. and I are able to contribute and, though I am generally not the praying type of person, I would like to ask you for at least a small prayer for the victims of this terrible disaster and to keep hope in your heart for survivors.

Thanks for being here to listen.

Thank you for posting this, Irene. I haven't watched the news in so long I didn't even know about this. My heart is hurting for them - what horrors they must be facing just to make it through each day.

I'm missed your posts, and look forward to your return when you're up to it. :-)

That was pretty devastating news. My husband and I watched it last night. We were pretty sad. What making us so sad was, that this country is really poor, and now, having a natural disaster like this. We can not imagine how hard it is for Haitian people.
