Workshop reminder: Feb. 5 and Feb. 13th! Check out my workshop page for more details, or comment on this post/email me on Facebook!
This blog, and pretty much every piece of my life puzzle right now, are dedicated to getting healthy food into little bodies and keeping the people who make it as sane as possible.
Occasionally, though, it’s nice to take a break from the “we” part of who I am, and do something just for me.
The other day I was alone in my quiet house. The laundry was done. Dinner was prepared. After almost nine years as a full-time homemaker, I’ve let go of conundrum created by holding a Master’s degree and still being OK with checking these sorts of accomplishments off my daily list of to-dos. It’s all good.
I made a salad. For one. Me. Mixed greens, fresh sliced pears, thinly sliced red onion, grilled chicken, feta cheese and a balsamic vinaigrette dressing that I fixed on the spot. I didn’t consolidate my efforts in the kitchen by chopping ingredients for future salads.
I didn’t even make enough to share.
p.s. This was a weird day for me–which you already know if you’ve been reading my blog! I actually love to make ridiculous quantities of food and share it all with the world. If you’re interested in attending a workshop “just for you” to get some excellent tips on meal planning or how to get your kiddos to eat anything (including a salad!) make a comment on this post or check me out on Facebook!
