I kind of get annoyed when people complain they’re “so busy” or “crazy busy” or “insanely busy”. Mostly because half of them have no idea what busy really means, but also because it’s this scape-goat answer to the question “how are you?”. You’re not special – everyone else is busy too. So I really try NOT to say “busy” when people ask me how I’m doing. But lately… I’ve failed.
I’m just crazy busy.
From travelling to a new job to extra-curricular activities to friends and family to celebrations to trying to keep my house quasi-presentable to eating and sleeping and oh, reading that book club book I haven’t started… life is nuts. And let’s not forget I am the self-declared more productive person on the planet. Okay, maybe not the planet, but certainly the most productive person I know.
Something has to give when life gets like this, right? It’s been the blogging and the cooking, sadly. But I’ve told myself time and time again NO PRESSURE – blog only if you can! But here I am again, chastising myself for missing a post this week. Whoops.
I’ve been saving this recipe for a rainy Friday! It’s the perfect thing to make just before the weekend and for me, it’s the definition of comfort food. You’ve no doubt seen 20 of these recipes online before… The Pioneer Woman has one, Brown Eyed Baker has one and Annie’s Eats has one… and just about everyone else.
This one is an adaption of Joy The Baker’s and I just want to say I freakin’ adore her. And I need one of her cookbooks ASAP. I am not an incredible baker or anything but she is a MASTER and if it wasn’t for her blog I’d probably be lost in that department… often.
I single-handedly ate this entire loaf in 48 hours while My Other Half was away. Sorry? Not sorry.
