TAKING TURNS

Had an epiphany while frustrating myself in the kitchen last night (doesn't take much). STM being gluten-intolerant has required me to step it up in that department, and it's been a big step. I'm baking gluten-free brownies, I'm making gluten-free pasta, and last night I tried making gluten-free pizza dough - well, actually the whole pizza, not just the dough.

Had one cabinet open to get the pizza tray, opened a drawer to get a knife, knocked into the corner cabinet and just had to laugh: how like me. How like me to want it all NOW. I can have it all, the knife, the bowl, the pizza tray, just not ALL AT THE SAME FLIPPIN' TIME. But really, moments within each other if I just relax, closing one door allowing another to open.

Allowing one door to close.

Before opening another.

Yes - a slow down might be universally in order. Would you mind lighting a Mary for me?

Wanda said...

I love how you laugh at yourself in these moments. On the other hand...who TF designs these kitchens?

Drama Mama said...

Isn't there a saying like that? When God closes a door He always opens a window? Probably a different metaphor, but that's what this post reminded me of - the closing of doors. And of course, opening others.

It's hard not to be that way in the kitchen - I'm like you, just want to get the cooking over with!There's a place down the street from us that makes the best chickpea, gluten free pizza crust. Come visit :-)

Hmmm, is this why I have ten books I'm reading all at once? lol
I should read one at a time...

;)

What do you mean you can't have it all at the same time? Why not? Tell me! NOW!

I'm with Amber -- maybe I would get more done if I read one book at a time instead of 20 million! ;-)
