*Afterthought #106—Wayfaring Foodies

Where did this first month of 2021 go? The days were so full—insurrection attempt, presidential inauguration, COVID-19 vaccinedog adoption, and deadlines—that I missed telling you about the latest issue of The Wayfarer Magazine. We dubbed the Hearth and Home Edition “the foodie issue,” because this special installment features recipes and reflections by Homebound Publications authors.

It’s not too late to purchase a copy, though. And those of you who’ve read my memoir, Hiking Nakedmight be happy to know the edition includes the recipe for Orange Twists. The photos here will give you a little “taste” of what’s inside.

Many thanks to photographer Robert Harrison for the images of me making twists and to my daughter, Rae Graville, for the food styling. We’ll know forever more that this all took place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

I hope these images, recipes, and reflections bring comfort to your hearth and home.

*Afterthoughts are my blog version of a practice followed in some Quaker meetings. After meeting for worship ends, people continue in silence for a few more minutes during which they’re invited to share thoughts or reflect on the morning’s worship. I’ve adopted the form here for last-day-of-the-month brief reflections on headlines, quotes, books, previous posts, maybe even bumper stickers and refrigerator magnets

  1. Thanks to January, I will now describe your sweater in that photo as “Amanda Gorman Yellow.” Well done, Iris & Robert, and Homebound! Now I want to eat twists. With bacon.

    1. Hah! I hadn’t thought about that color; I love the suggestion! Mmm, yes, twists and bacon – a good combination. And you’re an excellent baker who now has the recipe…

  2. Now I’m hungry again for one of your twists! Thanks.

    Love and blessings,

    Lorna
