I have a pretty lengthy commute to and from work. 114.4 miles, but who’s counting? I’m used to it and on most days doesn’t bother me much. I have uninterrupted time to think (a favorite pastime activity), listen to inspiring podcasts and of course music. 

So in my head I’m laying out the evening which goes a little something like this: Okay so I’ll get home, make the recipe I’ve been trying to post for weeks, give kids a bath..errrr..suddenly all traffic comes to a complete halt and stays that way for well over an hour. Panicked and anxious, I try to listening to a podcast and fail. I can’t recall a single word. Okay, let’s try music, music is always good…calming, calm, relaxing. SHIT THIS ISN’T WORKING! So the intrusive thoughts continue. My family will starve, the kids are going to be sleep deprived, what will happen to my post? Damn it, everything is falling apart. 

But in reality it isn’t. It’s just traffic and yes, it’s frustrating but it’s just part of life. I would often whip out the “why is this happening to me?” question when I know very well it’s happening to everyone everywhere and certainly not just to me. It’s fascinating how even the slightest disruption in routine can unravel a person that quickly.

But a good thing that came out of this hour back up, is finding a shortcut to this recipe. I realized I would be able to simplify things by tossing everything into the processor and pulsing a few times. Voila!
