Last Night's Dinner and an Attempt at Slowing Down

It's been kind of a crazy two weeks, and I realized, I need to slow down and just enjoy the moment. Things at work are crazy since our department is hosting its huge annual event and I've been trying to hire someone to do some work on my blog design- to no avail.  Suffice it to say that I've been such a spaz, that I left my purse in the child seat of a grocery cart went I went to the Asian market on Thursday.  I didn't notice my purse was missing until Friday morning when I needed to go to work and couldn't find it. Thank God that when I went to the Asian market on Friday morning, someone had found the purse and turned it in- untouched.  Not a single thing was stolen.  I was overcome with sentiment and started crying in front of the store manager who kept saying in the funniest Asian accent "you a lucky woman" over and over.

This little incident made me realize that I need to pour myself a nice glass of wine and just enjoy the present without worrying about the future and everything I have to do.  My mind has been going a million miles an hour all day everyday it seems.  In order to quiet my mind, I turned to what I do best.  Cook. Cooking is therapy.  Certainly eating doesn't fall short either.  There's something therapeutic about chopping vegetables, enjoying the smell of food wafting through the house, serving a simple, but delicious meal and enjoying it with the best friend a girl could have.

I will be posting the recipes from last night's meal throughout the week, but this was the menu:

Caprese Salad
Baked chicken Parmesan with buffalo mozzarella, fresh pasta sauce and cherry tomatoes and grilled zucchini
Rosemary olive oil bread

That was the menu... but to top it off, I sliced up some lemons and served myself a tall glass of Perrier.... only the finest- lol...
