Oregano Cottage Cheese BreadJune 15th: My first official day without a work place to report to. What did I do with my free time? I baked bread. There is little else in this world that is so comforting as the smell of a yeasty loaf baking in the oven.

I also continued my research, going back to Anthony Bourdain’s great Typhoid Mary to refresh my memory about life for women in the kitchen at the turn of the last century.

Bourdain notes that then, as now, “one finds oneself being defined by one’s job.”

So, how do I define myself when I have no job?
