Snow Crab Mac n’ Cheese
I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning when I received a text that threatened to alter the plan I had made for my day. I had very carefully planned out exactly where I was going to be that day and when. There was a timeline, there was a plan and I blew the first part of it by not getting out of bed to go for a run in the 23 degree weather, which I felt lazy about, and then someone had a change of plans which changed my plans (heaven forbid) and it sent me right over the grumpy side of the bed. I spent the next hour stomping around with morning breath and a bad attitude.
What an attractive way to act on the day I had planned to make all the food for my Valentine’s Dinner post. I’m sure Tony was thinking what a lucky man he is. Whatever his thinking was he quietly brought me steak and eggs on toast and a bottle of sriracha sauce, he knows me well. So I ate my eggs, drank some coffee, put on warm socks and adjusted my attitude which I’m going to say was a sufficient workout for today.
I like Valentine’s Day and I think it should be simple, enjoyable and have a sexy flair to it. But stressed out is not sexy so from one over ambitious human to the next I’m making a commitment to myself here, say it with me won’t you? *raises right hand* “If i’m too stressed out to enjoy making this meal and the experience it will create, I will order a pizza.” There… Pressure’s off. Now let’s stop stressing out about trivial things and make the sexiest mac n cheese you’ve ever seen.
