Today, I'm unapologetically eating my feelings.
School started on Monday, and I jumped in with both feet, ready to tackle anything! My first quiz, I scored a 90, my second quiz was 100... and then this morning I failed my first quiz... EVER.
It went down like this: I woke up two hours before everyone, read and studied in quiet, and then take the quiz or write after I'm finished with the days reading. Today, I started my timed quiz while me 3 year old was watching her morning show and my one year old was playing quietly. As soon as I went to my computer, my son decided he was hungry and proceeded to repeatedly bite me while I struggled to take the quiz. I tried to feed him yogurt and other snack foods, and then he took the yogurt out of his mouth with his hands and put it all over my favorite couch.
So, my time ticked away while I was being bitten and freaking out. But, I'm trying to work through this with grace for myself. I can only do what I can do in the moment, and now I need to shake it off and eat this yummy soup.
To make it, start by cutting and peeling a butternut squash.
Add it to a soup pot with one carton of chicken broth and two cups of water.
Add in 1-2 potatoes and 3 cloves of garlic
Cook until soft, about 20 minutes.
Add one can of drained black beans
2 teaspoons of ground cumin
Let simmer about 10 minutes
And blend with an immersion blender.
Then sprinkle with a garnish of cheese, or a handful if you just failed a quiz, and enjoy!
