4.11.17

It’s finally happening, the temperatures in NYC are beginning to stay above 55 degrees on a consistent basis.  It’s felt like a small miracle after a harsh March, one that felt like what the dead of the winter should be…..in Minnesota….with a lake effect.  But now only light jackets required and the sun is peeking through the clouds. But since it isn’t full out warm weather yet, I still take comfort in soft clothes, sweaters, and spring pieces mixed with colder weather wear. I also take comfort in a soft savory quick loaf.

Braided PB&J Bread | Domestic B(i)atch

11.14.16

*I cannot ignore the 2016 Election results, and you are totally free to skip ahead to pics of me in a great jacket and of this delicious braided bread.  However, I must respond once, and then work on what I can do to help this country so this never happens again. Thank you for understanding, as this has been a very sad time for me, and many fellow Americans.*

This past week has been very challenging for me.  After the election on Tuesday night I felt defeated, like I had the wind knocked out of me, and I lost all motivation to do anything creative.  I didn’t want to bake, I didn’t sleep well, I spoke and cried a lot with my friends and husband, discussing the future and what kind of a world we’re in for with this president-elect.  As Dave Chapelle so brilliantly spoke on SNL, I hope he proves us all wrong. And I won’t dwell on this past this post; this isn’t going to be a blog that is constantly hammering on how poor of a choice we have made. I will say this as a take away with this outcome: I feel stupid. Since Tuesday I have tried to read articles, on both sides, to educate myself on why something I was so sure was in the bag, got pulled from under our feet. Too little too late of course.  I blame myself, I blame the fact I obviously surround myself with like-minded people and therefore social media algorithms cater to such, and I blame the media for pushing things that shouldn’t have been a focus instead of actual situations.  Because of the articles I’ve read, the numbers, the statistics of the people out of work, the decrease in wages in this country, the fact Hillary didn’t even visit Wisconsin since April because they voted Bernie and assumed it’d go blue, these are all things that lead to a president I am personally scared of.  The difference I will point out between the past 8 years and Obama’s campaign, and why I will NOT just “get over it” is because Obama didn’t build his support base on discriminating against anyone who wasn’t like him.  Trump has thrived on this, because from what I’ve watched and read……..a plan? Not so much. Just a lot of words and empty promises.  And when hate crimes spike in schools, when the KKK has a parade to celebrate our next president, that is a clear clue.  That is a warning.  And you can defend the fact that Trump actually cares about the Rust Belt, will help these men and families, and I REALLY REALLY hope he does. I hope he proves me wrong.  However, you must also take responsibility for the fact he has chosen a VP who is the most anti-LGBTQ elected official in the nation, he has insulted the black community, the Hispanic community, veterans, the disabled, women, and numerous other people, including fellow Republicans (who then endorsed him). You don’t get to cherry pick his qualities, you must take responsibilities for all of them. And those families he promises to help? I’ve yet to see any solid outline of what he will do to ‘fix this.’ This country is great, it will continue to be great, it didn’t need to be great again. Half this country didn’t even vote. In two years I will do my part to take back Congress (by voting!!), and in 4 years, I want to help a huge chunk of this country feel not so desperate that their only hope, their only viable choice, is the current president-elect.

Wearing America | Domestic B(i)atch

11.8.16

So I did not plan on taking last week off.  But it happened, and I’ve moved past it, and I’m sure you have too.  I’ve been waiting for this day forever, or at least what feels like forever because this election has gone on for an eeeeettttteeeerrrrrnnnniiiiitttyyyyyyy. So after today, it’s done, and the next four years are decided.  And I urge you to vote.  It’s your right, as an American, you get to put in your two cents.  So do it.  I don’t post a ton of shit online about politics, because it’s a rabbit hole that leads to arguments, hurt feelings, and anger.  The one thing it doesn’t lead to is a changed opinion.  Social media just let’s people who have never met be pissed at each other for 15 months.  It’s the worst.  Who’s ready for stupid YouTube videos and pictures of pandas becoming best friends with a sloth to come back? Because I am. This is the farthest thing from a political blog possible, but I will say loud and proud I cannot WAIT to vote for the first female presidential nominee.  The fact a woman is even nominated leaves me a little speechless, just a little, I still will talk forever.  I’m excited that as my right as an American, I can vote for her. And then proceed to hole myself up in my apartment, make homemade burritos with my husband (hashtag badhombres), and with a bottle of bourbon by our side, hope and pray that the country makes the right choice. Because I think shit is going to go DOWN today, no matter who wins. And I truly believe the other option will have dire consequences for what will happen to this country.
