You’re busy. You’re stressed. You have a million things to do and no time to do them, including making dinner. So you reach for a simple recipe. And even though you’re in a rush, you follow the instructions because you want to get it right. If you’ve ever forgotten just ¼ tsp. salt from a batch of chocolate chip cookies, you know what I mean! What should’ve been delicious, ends up a disaster. You gotta follow the recipe!
What if we took this same approach to busyness?
May has become the new December. One glance at my calendar makes my shoulders feel like the Rocky Mountains of Colorado! So many things to do and places to be. Not sure how I’m going to get through it all. Ugg. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a simple recipe for this busy month to help ease a little stress?
Here’s one of my favorites! It’s tried and true. I hope you like it. =)
