Oh boy. I started this post last week, and now it’s already Tuesday! Autumn is running with a vengeance, maybe trying to to burn off the excess energy that’s giving us ninety-degree weather in November? I dunno. It’s nuts.
This month is gonna fly. I’m heading to Santa Ynez tomorrow to participate in and cook for a four-day meditation retreat about developing compassion. Then I’ll be back for a week, during which I’m throwing my big annual shindig, which is also my favorite holiday of the year: Friendsgiving! It’s the Thanksgiving that comes before Thanksgiving that you celebrate with friends. Pretty great. Then I’m heading to Colorado to celebrate actual Thanksgiving, also with friends.But for now, it’s Election Day! Time to get some healthy food in me and steel my nerves for the excitement. Yeah breakfast bites! No matter what the results of today’s election are, I’ll still be grateful to live in the United States of America. I know this country has many flaws and inequities, and that the people living in it disagree about pretty much everything, but we also have a lot going for us. We live in a country where we are allowed to disagree, where we have the right to work to change what inequities do exist, even if the balance of power is not always fair or transparent, and where basic rights are acknowledged, if not always guaranteed. We also live in a place with some of the most diverse landscape in the world, both culturally and ecologically. Heck yeah, dudes!
Whether or not you are from the US, whether or not this election matters to you, I hope you have a great day and if you want a great breakfast, you’ve come to the right place! These tasties are what I imagine would happen if a scone and some killer granola had a baby. Check it out…recipe after the jump. Continue reading
