 Good morning!

Smitten Kitchen took a social media break this weekend -- given the
devastating, enraging events of the last week, it was neither the time
to talk about shortcakes nor were they near my thoughts. I almost
never talk about “politics” on SK because I like cooking to be an
escape and I've never had my mind changed about who I was going to
vote for in the headnote of a sheet cake recipe. I also don't consider
myself an authority figure, a teacher, a leader, on how other people
should think -- nor do I wish to be. It would be a very uncomfortable
position for me when I have so little figured out, and so much
learning to do. I can only tell you what I usually do on Monday
morning -- what life looks like from here.

My street in NYC has many smashed storefronts and as we went by them
on Sunday, I explained to my son (he's 10; we use simpler language
with the 4yo) that it's essential we're not more concerned about
property that can be repaired than human lives that cannot be. I told
him that when systems break down -- and a system is broken when having
black skin makes people the target of excessive police force, or is
used to deny a presumption of guilt before innocence, as happened in
the killing of George Floyd -- people will and should exercise their
legal, protected right to protest, and while there will always be a
tiny subset who use crowds as an excuse to be destructive (I saw it
firsthand from my balcony the last two nights), we cannot let this
distract us from the important message of the other 99%. And I told
him about some of the causes we give to [like the ACLU and The Bail
Project] because we consider these investments in a more just future,
in the same way we hope talking to him about his place in, and
responsibility to, the world around him will be something he takes
with him.

And now I really want to cook again. We had a weekend of unmemorable
takeout and it's left me famished for something real. Below, a few
relatively quick, simple, early summer vegetarian favorites that I
hope will restart us, plus two sweets we need right now, we just do.

Hope you're staying healthy and well-fed,

Deb

beach bean salad [link removed]
[[link removed]]

New: I found my platonic ideal of a summer bean salad --one that keeps
well, getting better as it marinates, and travels fantastically to
anyplace your socially distanced summer might let you safely escape to
-- in a new Southern cookbook that celebrates the stories behind the
recipes it shares.

This in a foil packet on the grill + some hearty olive oil-brushed
bread, grilled and rubbed with a clove of garlic + a glass of rosé
with a couple ice cubes clinking around in it = how we're going to do
a weeknight around here.

In which I took a perfectly good apple betty and swapped in
strawberries, dark brown sugar, browned butter, and made them
individually sized. With Wonder Bread. I regret nothing.

Did you know that deadly good butterscotch, butterscotch so
transcendent it might bring tears to your eyes, is ridiculously easy
to make? Five ingredients + five minutes on the stove = we just
can’t. You're going to have to for us.
