White women played key roles in organizing this past week’s rally-turned-attempted coup at the Capitol, and, echo what Michael Bluth once said after opening up a paper bag that said “DEAD DOVE DO NOT EAT!” in order to inspect its contents, I don’t know what I expected!


The Washington, D.C., rally—you know, the one that spiraled into violent chaos on Wednesday after participants stormed the Capitol at Donald Trump’s behest, resulting in at least five deaths—was largely organized by Women for America First, CNBC reports. Women for America First, a 501(c)(4) group chaired by former Tea Party Express leader Amy Kremer, had been urging supporters to join up with what the nonprofit was calling its “caravan” to Washington in the days leading up to the siege. Kylie Jane Kremer, the executive director of Women for Trump who also happens to be the other Kremer lady’s daughter, is listed as the sole organizer on the permit for Wednesday’s rally, officially dubbed the “March to Save America,” per The Washingtonian.

Cheers Pink Ears!

People are the worst.

I don’t know if people still want to talk about food with what’s been going on, but if you do, what did you make this week? I made homemade masa harina tortillas for the first time, delicious, but not picture worthy, BUT, the “good” butter, Kerry Gold, was on super sale, the same as store brand butter, so we got some, and I had to do something special with. Tartine Morning Buns!

Croissant dough rolled up with cinnamon, sugar, and orange zest. They have a nice level of orange flavor, citrus without being punch-you-in-the-mouth orange oil flavor. Not too sweet, and great flavor, probably from the fancy butter. When you’re baking them, the instructions say at about half way push the centers down, and you can see, I was maybe a bit aggressive with that part.
