These 8 healthy big batch suppers are wholesome, nourishing and comforting. This selection includes chicken, shrimp, pork and vegetarian options.
On Sunday, The Globe and Mail columnist André Picard posted a very simple and meaningful opinion piece about how he believes we’ll all get through this pandemic. Picard has been a health reporter for decades but his column wasn’t about the virus or how it’s spreading. He wrote about humanity, how it’s in our DNA to help others and that a desire to lend a hand will carry us through to the other side of this crisis.
“The only way to slow this pandemic is for all of us to become helpers…” he wrote. By now we all know how we can help our communities (working from home, avoiding social gatherings, self-isolating if necessary…)
Since most of us are spending more time at home than we’re used to, the kitchen could become a hub of helpfulness.
