Yesterday’s post was a mere preface of today’s thoughts and recipe. I recently read a quote that resonated with me. In between goals is a thing called life, that should be lived and enjoyed.Since being back home I’ve busied myself in an endless list of things. Side projects for c&é, meetings and conference calls, making decisions. I have this terrible habit of doing everything on my own, not asking for help or being able to say no. I’ve come to realize that this is just a quality, or rather a weakness, of mine. I need to step away from my little black book and look up since that’s where my parents are waiting. Waiting to spend some time with me. I haven’t done that nearly as much since I’ve been back, two weeks today.

There’s a reason why I share this reflection with you. I share it because I sometimes seek comfort in food. Not in the way where we search for chocolate in times of heartbreak, ice cream in times of celebration, but seek good food and company to get away. I made this a while back, quite a while back actually. For my friends after a week of so much frustration and confusion and heartache. It’s comforting because it brings warmth emotionally. It’s made in one pot and distributed from within, like we are sharing. It helps me relax.
