When I asked my Italian friend at the beginning of the stay-home-orders in Austria if he had some advice on how to not go crazy, him and his wife and two kids had already been stuck in this period for several weeks in Northern Italy.
His advice was to eat good food, treat yourself well, think happy thoughts and talk to the ones you like. (Grazie del consiglio ❤)
At that time, it sounded so simple, too simple. However, after a week of mostly staying at home, I appreciate his advice. It was fun to cook soul food together, to plan different dishes than usual – and I discovered I enjoy baking!
For some inspiration, here is our soul food diary of the last week. Stay safe, stay healthy!
