It’s very strange to be a private, reserved person with a public job. Sometimes I can hardly stand to publish another post and put myself out there for critique all over again. I’ve pulled back from writing about personal matters on this once-little corner of the internet over time, even though ninety-nine percent of you all are so kind and encouraging. (Thank you.)
I catch myself doing the same in new relationships—not opening up, not quite being myself, turning into a generic people pleaser. Vulnerability terrifies me and it’s safer to just bob along on the surface. This week went south and that’s all I can muster up to say about it.
This frittata, though. It deserves mention. You should make it. It’s full of sweet butternut squash, sautéed onion and salty Parmesan cheese, topped with crispy fried sage. It’s a great gluten-free holiday brunch option.
