Soul Food and Southern Cooking told me tonight that by overcrowding the pan, I would be hampering my efforts to succeed in my vegetable medley sautee. Never mind that, at 25 years old, I needed to look up online, how to sautee vegetables. I read this teaching point long after my vegetables were nearly finished, crammed in their pan. Naturally I thought I had ruined them and that the outcome of my dish was going to be horrible because of this hiccup along the way. This idea completely parallels my run today!
I didn't plan to appreciate my rock-weighted cotton pants, elongating every step. But upon reflection, and with this new onion thinking in my mind, I realized that there was a bright side to it. I thought of how easier it will be to run on Tuesday, without the pants. Without the extra weight. This was an unforseen benefit of the drudgery of today to be witnessed only after the fact.
I guess you're always going to have an onion or two in your day. But I bet you... for reasons understood now or later... that onion probablyyyyy wasn't so bad after all!
