|Pumpkin bread - 1 for today, 2 for the freezer|
I'm doing some batch cooking on the weekends so, I have some easy, nutritious meals to throw in the microwave or oven and/or making a lot of things from scratch. I’ve reduced or eliminated breakfast cereals, bread, cookies, crackers, snack items etc. For example, waffles. A double batch of waffles can go in the refrigerator or freezer and then turned into toaster waffles. I'll do three batches of cookies. Save the dough in the refrigerator and cook them on demand. I just commit to one thing. One day. One thing.

Before you go shop. Finish the meditation at the beginning. Cook the breakfast. Go to the funeral home. Look upon that child's bullet ridden body. Poke at the dinner. Don't turn on the tv. Follow that meditation all the way through to the part where you climb exhausted into the bed knowing tomorrow will be the same and the same for another mother and one after that. Every 28 hours, a Black mother somewhere is putting her feet on the floor and standing up after her son has been killed. Then think about how much you need that whatever it is which seemed so important five minutes ago.
