California has been issued a stay-at-home order. Only essential adventures are allowed (such as going to the grocery store or picking up prescriptions, etc). I live in a house that was subdivided into three apartments. We have shared hallways. Fortunately, we really like our neighbors and consider them family. We decided to isolate together for a Dungeons & Dragons session to break up the monotony of being in our individual rooms and release some pent up tension from working from home. A couple of the guys upstairs are vegetarians, so I decided to make something I figured all of us could enjoy: Jamaican Jerk Tofu with Coconut-Lime Rice and Black Beans.
It was definitely a hit.
Our adventuring went well and we did another evening of Dungeons & Dragons a few days later. It’s tough to be a bard whose primary instrument is the bagpipes. But, we had thematic music to underscore the adventure and had a lot of fun. For the second excursion, I made the Scotch Eggs, again, and made sure to make two vegetarian versions, as well. As soon as I’m able to get more of the Lightlife ground meat substitute, I’ll make some more and maybe do a taste-test video for it! According to the guys, they were all amazing.
P.S.: Hey, folks! So, I’m a Ph.D. Candidate in the field of Industrial/Organizational Psychology and my research focuses on using Dungeons & Dragons (among other games) for leadership development. I’m ramping up to start a YouTube channel for that, as well. In the meantime, you can look at the random stuff I have posted for that over on my business website, Improved Initiative.
