We are obsessed with food. Its even part of our lexicon. Colloquial expressions like  “three squares” “lamebrain” ”chow” and ” burger-flipper” exemplify how we use food sayings everywhere. 

It’s winter which means it’s colder and the nights are longer. Although we have had Chanukah with its traditions of food and candle lighting to comfort us, the ravages of Covid-19 continue to creep in and keep us apart.
