    Easy Homemade Potatoes Au Gratin

    …Or, as we would call it, Vegetarian Moussaka.

    I have so much to say today, yet I am speechless.

    How could this happen? How could a human being wake up one day and say to himself, “I’m going to go and take the lives of 20 children today. And a few adults to go with them… yeah, I’m gonna go do that…”

    Blame it on mental illness, blame it on the guns, blame it on society. You know what? I don’t know who to blame. Do I blame his parents for his upbringing? Do I blame the 2nd Amendment? Where can I point my finger? I want to feel safe when I send my kids to school! They are supposed to be taken care of while they are there, away from me.

    I can’t imagine what the parents and families in Newtown are going through… I just can’t.

    I want to say, I am sorry… I am a parent and this is my nightmare, as it was yours as well… I don’t want my nightmares to become a reality. Nightmares are supposed to stay in the back of your mind, stashed away and to never be seen by your eyes.But, unfortunately, this nightmare became a reality for 26 families… I am so saddened. My heart is breaking.

    I can’t stop hugging Ana and Aleksandra. Ana is getting frustrated with me because I keep kissing her, but I don’t care. She can scream all she wants. There’s one too many moms wishing they could do the same, but their last kiss was on Friday morning. That’s just not fair…

    I chose to share this Spinach, Feta and Potato Gratin with you because when things don’t feel right, I make something that I know will bring the whole family to the dinner table. Moussaka, orМусака,is one of those meals. Usually we make it with ground beef, but this time around I wanted something a bit more cheesy. And green.

    …Please hug your kids, tell them you love them, and enjoy your family today. I know I am.

    God Bless.
