I have a little weekend wrap up post to share with you a bit later. First, let me paint you a picture.
After a brisk morning walk (in the dark) with Andrew Henry and dog, I put on a pot of steel cut oats (gluten-free goodness). Then I threw in a handful of flaxseeds, couple dashes of cinnamon, some dried cranberries and left it to simmer. I was feeling pretty good about our healthy start to the week.
I have previously mentioned my 40's are robbing me of my short-term memory (I have right?). What happens when you don't turn the "simmer" knob all the way down and you leave the kitchen, forgetting you started cooking at all....
Luckily, what was left inside was very edible and yummy. What was left outside was not edible, nor did it look very yummy. There is an ocean of it under that pot people. AN OCEAN PEOPLE!
I got no sympathy from Andrew Henry. He was busy cleaning dog vomit off the dining room rug.
I am now reminding myself, we are lucky we have food, a kitchen to cook it in and even more blessed to have someone to share it with. A little dog vomit is nothing because we get to have our dog with us every day - easier for me to say because I didn't have to clean it up but I know AH feels the same.
How did you start your week?
