Pretzels and the faith community shows up in DC to walk with protesters

10th day of protests. Even with a deadly virus raging these people are on the streets. I don’t know how long it can go on, but good for them.

And we made pretzels…

There are 1000 different recipes for pretzels and my first issue with most of them is that they make huge batches. We arent expert enough to start cutting and adjusting the size, but we arent expert enough to figure out what we like.

We do know that we like them boiled in baking soda, we definitely know we like them slathered in butter and sprinkled with salt as soon as they come out of the oven. And we know we will keep trying because it was my crave for pretzels that headed us down this path of baking… it was this that brought the kitchenade stand mixer into our lives.

And then the news…

This is not the rejection of “political correctness”; it is the success of white supremacy in the Texas Republican Party. The GOP, in many places, has become an institution where leaders are elevated and groomed for cruelty and bigotry. This is what happens when the president of the United States normalizes racism and mainstreams ideological madness.
