So I followed my own advice and planned my meals out, and made a grocery list. I knew I had a busy week coming up so I decided I would make a lasagna on Sunday night that we could eat Monday night and maybe Tuesday.
I got my iPad out and played creative music, lit a handle to set a calm mood and proceeded to cook a wonderful lasagna for my family.
Monday night came and I came home eager to heat the lasagna up for dinner. Everyone dug in and guess what? It was dry. It was a $50.00 compilation of dryness.
My family politely ate it, and later filled up on chips and snacks. My lovely meal was a fiasco.
Even after cooking for 26 years I mess things up. I have dropped casseroles on the floor, that the dog later enjoyed, have burnt cookies and made messes that only Mr. Clean could fix.
It’s life. So we pick up our pride off the floor and try again, or order pizza.
My lasagna might not be comparable to a piece of art in a gallery, a photograph in Time magazine, or as important as trying to climb Mt. Everest, but it was important to me.
What we do is important, whether anyone recognizes that, or appreciates that. It’s what we do. So let’s keep doing it. I read this quote this week and thought it was applicable,
“Do the best work you can when the world isnt’ watching” Jeff Goins
Now on to the next project.
