These are the hot chocolate days of winter. The city is in the minus 30s and getting slapped with minus 45 wind chill and as I trudge to work and back I’m dreaming of the long-lost days of hot soup. You know, those days where you throw every vegetable known to mankind in a crock pot, go to work, and when you come back you have a steaming bowl of soup – with a mouth-watering aroma to guide you in for safe landing – waiting for you. Sigh.
The last couple of days have definitely been more of a struggle. I ate about half of my pasta and then stopped because I just wasn’t getting any enjoyment from it. The sauce was actually really good, but all I was picturing was it slathered all over a plate of cooked spaghetti. I did pick up my bowl and finish it though, but it was more so because I knew I needed to instead of that I wanted to. So… here’s to tomorrow!
