becoming a happy adult in a sunny sustainable world.
Today was one of those days. I was stressed from the start after spending all day working…and I woke up early this morning to continue working (though, bonus points for me–up at 6am for the 5th straight day in a row). And it was just downhill from that point on. Surprisingly I handled it quite well until this afternoon. And I still handled it well on the outside this afternoon. But inside I was bubbling with rage and frustration. And I came home from work ready to explode.
So. I did twenty minutes of meditation. And that helped some. But I needed more. And I kneaded more. (I can’t miss the chance for a good pun. Sorry.)
Yep. Pizza/rustic tarte for dins. Pizza dough from scratch…with lots of dough to knead and punch all my frustrations out on. Perfect and tasty.
Ready for some rising…
Spread it all out, top with onions sauteed in evoo with fresh thyme. And bake for 12 minutes.
Take it out, top with gorgonzola and chopped walnuts and stick back in the oven for 10 minutes.
And top with (CSA) arugala!
Served with Sesame Ginger Soy glazed Sweet Potatoes and some TJ’s 2-buck chuck.
Nom nom nom.
Ok, off to bed ladies and gents…but tell me, what do you all do to work out anger and frustration?! but, seriously folks, punching pizza dough = best ever.
