Confession: I have election anxiety. True, it’s my own fault because I’m choosing to read election news and watch debates. This refusal to opt out has forced me to come up with a coping mechanism: frying chicken. It is soothing to coat the chicken with a mixture of flour, salt, pepper and whatever other spices inspire me in the moment. Chervil, anyone? The talking points fade as I watch the peanut oil heat up. A welcome peace calms me as the coating transforms into crispy brown goodness. It doesn’t change anything about the world we live in, but it provides a few moments of calm.
