I drank the tea still hot. Felt the steam on my face and ate like this --one bite, one sip, repeat.
Glorious, joyous, delight. Among the sick babes and the whole lots not getting done, there was this moment.
I asked my MamaCoach forum women what they would say to themselves today, if they were being really, really specific. The answers were beautiful. I'll share mine and I know that it helped me to get to my hot tea moment. What would you say to yourself today?
I said, Take a shower, get dressed in cozy clothes, make that soup, send your husband a sweet love note, let the boys watch a movie so you can work for 2 hours and please, please, don't let the dishes pile up. And as soon as you start to feel panic about all you need to do today, remember that there is all the time you need. There is all the time you need. (So, please don't yell today!)
Almond Curry Biscuits (adapted from Nourish Days Crackers which are heavenly)
2 cups almond meal
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp yellow curry powder
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp dried cilantro
1 TB olive oil
Mix the meal, salt, and spices together. Make a hole in center and add garlic, egg and oil. Scramble the egg and then mix all together until even. Taking tablespoon sized amounts, roll into a ball in your hand and press down. On oiled parchment paper on a baking sheet press down a little bit more until the biscuit is quite flat. Bake at 350 degrees for about 13-15 minutes, nice and golden. Enjoy with goat cheese and jam and really hot tea or at dinner with tomato soup and a glass of wine or lemon water.
After all the birthday celebrating is over, I'll be back to tell you all about this, and the rest! Happy Tuesday. Celebrate the simple today. Enjoy your tea hot.
