My afternoon was spent at the dermatologist's office. Apparently, the eczema that is taking over my face has been exacerbated by my stress. What I need to do, it seems, is lessen my stress. She said, and I quote, "Maybe you could try yoga. Or breathing."
Yes, I'm sure that will fix everything. I just need to breathe. Right.
After going back to work, picking up my friend's son from school and picking up Max and Dylan from the sitters, I was finally on my way home. No one should be surprised to read that I caught a TRAIN on the way home and was forced to backtrack and go the long way. By the time we got home, and I fed Max (who was hysterical due to the fact that he didn't have enough breastmilk today), I was a tad cranky. But, I was determined to make Emeril's Pot Roast Bolognese with our leftover Pot Roast. So, after the babe was fed, I put some water on to boil, gave Dylan a bowl of cottage cheese to tide her over and started prepping.
It was excellent!!! Here's a pic:
Dylan and I both loved it, and we had a ton left over. I packed up a giant tupperware for Stephanie and Clayton (our babysitter and her fiance) and still had enough leftover for my lunch tomorrow and a second tupperware for my sister-in-law. I love being frugal, and this was a very tasty way to use up leftover Pot Roast.
The best part of the meal, though, was the fact that I felt so much better by the time it was completed. The chopping, the sauteeing, the mixing, and the hanging out with Dylan was completely cathartic. Much better than breathing....
(P.S. Do you all like seeing photos of my completed meals? Would you like to see prep photos as well? Please comment!)
