I know that losing a job is one of the top five most stressful life experiences, but I had really hoped that I would just slip past any depression from this since deep down it was what I wanted. It turns out that when someone wrongs you, it doesn’t matter what you wanted, you feel wronged. I can’t wait to tell you about it, and oh tell you I will, I am just deciding whether or not to sue the shit out of her or not.
Anyway, I’ve been in a bit of a funk about it. On top of the funk, we are in the middle of what local news is calling Arctic Blast 2010. The high today was 31.
What I am trying to say is that I’ve been cramming comfort food down my piehole for days now. I’ve gained my Thanksgiving weight before Thanksgiving – GAH. B asked me if I wanted to take a bath with Fiona tonight and I was like, I have too much extra girth to be seen in a bathtub, otherwise I would, you know?
All that being said, I ate like a queen today and thought I would share some of my bounty.
Breakfast: I tried a new way of cooking steel cut oats. Usually I make them on the stove top or in the slow cooker, but I recently read that baked is the way to go. The “recipe” is as follows:
1 cup steel cut oats
3 cups water
1 cup milk
pinch of salt
Stir, bake for 2 hours at 300.
You can eat it all week, just scoop out what you want each morning. So this morning I topped mine with soymilk, half a banana, coconut and cinnamon. It was so, so good.
Lunch: Lunch was leftover chicken and dumplings, from this recipe. I swear, this is the perfect cold weather food.
Take that, troll boss. Take that, Arctic Blast.
But seriously. I am so full.
