It is hard not to eat and drink like it is a holiday every night, particularly when that is when we are used to being together. Daniel tends to mix a different craft cocktail each night, which now accompanies our mindfulness moments with Florence, followed by a virtual Zoom date with extended family and friends. Dinner consists of the kids’ fattening childhood favorites: lasagna, roast chicken with mash potatoes, and tuna pasta.
