Food Recipes Life & Quirks

Spontaneous Soul

Yesterday, I decided that I would cook up a delicious soul food dinner. I hadn’t been fully rested, but I was determined to push through the fog and fatigue to keep from napping (and throwing my sleeping off track) and to satisfy my taste buds. We grabbed a few things from the grocery and within a few hours, we were dining on this.




I’m so happy I decided to cook a spontaneous meal and live blog it because it inspired me to keep creating art in the kitchen. I had been feeling overwhelmed, contemplating canceling my plans to attend my second BlogHer Food conference. My food blog still isn’t up, we’re making changes in our household, and events drain me. I just haven’t been in the mood to be around a bunch of people no matter how awesome they are. But I got my hotel reservation yesterday and boy is it fancy. I’ll survive and come back even more inspired than last year. It’ll be a good time.

    That looks so good, Sheena! And I’m glad you pushed through the clutter to keep following your curiosity for food. The food blog might not be up, but the food blogger (you, shaawty!) is clearly still refining her beautiful Give. Keep it simple, keep moving…you’re making waves!
