The BEST gift for the busy person
Posted on November 20 2013
Wife. Mom. Entrepreneur. Incredibly different titles. Equally challenging. At times…some more than others.
I struggle with balance.
I struggle with a strong desire to be a stay at home mom, and the call to do what I do as an artist.
It's not easy to be all things to all people.
Often I fail.
For years I home schooled my kids and my studio was in my home. It allowed me to juggle mom-wife-business owner. Since we moved last fall, my kids ALL went to school for the first time and my temporary studio is miles from home. Ugh. Struggle.
I'll also let you in on a little secret. I LOVE to cook. LOVE. And I'm pretty good at it too!
I also love family dinners around the table. It's not always easily to coordinate six people, but we make a huge effort and I treasure that time.
But driving home from work, and THEN having to plan a meal. Not easy.
I've tried different meal plans or cooking for the month plans. Sure they worked. But we never liked the food. Kinda boring.
And bonus bonus? The recipes are amazing. Not boring. Fun. Tasty. And in 5 weeks, we have only had one thing they did not like. Ok, it had spinach in it. I like spinach. Popeye likes spinach. Apparently my family does not. My bad.
For me? I love that I don't have to think. I love that I have a list for the grocery store. I love that I can come home and KNOW dinner will be on the table without me losing my mind.
This soup was amazing. Easy. And everyone loved it. Perfect for a cold winters day.
You win. They win. Everyone wins. Anyone else hungry now? Seriously…I'm starving!
Let me know if you have any questions…or what you think!
