I am a full speed kinda gal. I get going on one thing, get pretty fixated and BOOM, realize I need to “pump the brakes”. I really need a lesson on pumping as well. It is usually a full on slam!
I have been focussing all my energies on getting my business up and running. It has only been a little over a couple of months that I have been going full time with Grits and Honey. In my irrational mind, I think I should be opening my 100th franchise. In my realistic mind, I couldn’t be happier with what I have accomplished. Companies wanting to include me as a full time weekly vendor. Clients wanting to me to cook for them personally twice a week. I still have to pinch myself. Me? Don’t they know I do not have a clue and that I am just following my heart that doesn’t think. I am a romantic. It really is a strange concept. I hope the bank will be so loving when I ask for that business loan.
So, in order to go enjoy lunch with a friend, I decided to make a simple meal of Pasta with fresh Tomato, Feta and Basil for the girls. I made a little extra for them to take to lunch the following day. This is also a favorite on the catering menu. I like to add grilled chicken, kalamata olives or fresh grilled squash and zucchini. This can be made in advance so if your lunch goes to two glasses of Pino you don’t have to sweat what is for dinner. It is already done!
All you do is cook your pasta of choice. Add fresh chopped tomato, fresh chopped basil, chop some grilled chicken, chop your olives, and mix it all together with extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle the top with crumbled feta and Viola!
I need reminding to enjoy life through the hectic day to day as mother and business owner. We can all get smothered with stress. I hope you will be reminded to take a moment and enjoy whatever it is that gives you peace. Pump your brakes!
