Ten Minute Fresh Tomato Sauce with Quick-Stewed Zucchini + White Beans

I read an article recently about anxiety, and how we have the ability to create self-soothing circuits. We’re born without these, and we build them with age as a way to survive. Some of these circuits are positive, like meditating or cooking or talking to someone on the phone that we love. Others are {can be} negative. Like eating too much, drinking too much, numbing of any kind. For good or bad, I am certain that at least sixty-percent of my self-soothers consist of tomato sauce of some kind. Pizza, pasta, you understand where I’m going with this.

I don’t know a lot about everything, but I do know at least a little bit about tomato sauce.

My best friend and her husband and their baby were visiting us last week. The days were hot and glorious. We spent them mostly in my backyard, eating and drinking, reminiscing and being present with one another. For seven days there was a constant series of ups and downs. Wine and negroni soaked evenings. Hysterics of laughter and tears, sometimes simultaneously. Ramblings of past mistakes and current blessings. And quiet. The comfortable silence of just bring safe with one another.

There was a trip to the pet emergency room. My cat is okay now.

There was a car accident. Everyone is okay now.
