Family Matters

I generally like my double entendres to be a little more lighthearted, but such is not the case. This is just a quick note to let you know that I'll need to take a break from the blog this week to attend to some pressing family matters. I will be back before you know it, and I want to wish all of you a happy and thoughtful Memorial Day.

Chef John, I hope all will end up well with you and yours. I'll use the extra time without new recipes to hunt down my own freakishly small wooden spoon.

You and your family are in many thoughts and prayers, Chef. Yes, family does matter and we all understand that.

Due to all your hard work, we have hundreds of Food Wishes videos to peruse until you are back again.

I was just thinking, as you'll perhaps be away a while, maybe some of your fans here can post a favorite non Chef John recipe. I have one for awesome crispy citrusy pork carnitas you can make in an hour and no one can stop eating - courtesy of my Ecuadorian street cook friends. Also a good one I call ratatouille lasagna if anyone would like it. I don't have a freakishly small spoon but I do have a freakishly small fork. Take care and all the best.

This is my first comment on your blog, but I thought it was the best time to wish you well. I hope by "pressing" you don't mean "really bad". Looking forward to your return. Be well.
