It was a good excuse to spend the morning in the kitchen. Mashing bananas into flour. Cooking quinoa. Watching Law & Order: SVU. Yes, a good morning indeed.
What's your weekend morning routine? I'm usually up by 7, and either out the door to the gym or already on my computer working on a paper. That was my plan for today, but my kitchen was calling to me... she's been feeling a little neglected lately. After spending a few hours making a delicious mess, our relationship was restored and my spirits were lifted.
