There’s no doubt that this summer will look unlike any other that we have experienced before. Summer camps, vacations, and hitting the town are a thing of the past as we now must learn how to navigate social distancing during a season that is historically spent in the company of others. If you’ve got annual summer traditions or had previously planned trips, there are still unique ways to enjoy this season and recreate those memories closer to home.
The microplane- a zester, grater, shredder, whatever you prefer to call it, is perhaps one of the handiest tools for the kitchen. Its uses extend far beyond that of a traditional shredder or zester because it creates soft and fluffy pillows of cheese, citrus rinds, chocolate, and so much more.
It’s not simply enough to have conversations about the injustices taking place towards the black community, we must have a continued effort to become anti-racist and allies with our brothers and sisters. While education and awareness is definitely key, they are merely a starting point as there are even more impactful ways for us to make change. One of those ways comes from our pockets- it’s where we spend our dollar.
