This week has been an exercise in limitations.
After one too many recipe failures, unnecessary messes (both literally and figuratively), moments of stretching myself thin and subsequently a few too many sessions of eating my feelings, I decided to take a break for a day or two before venturing back into the kitchen. Plus, it was just a good excuse to get Chipotle for dinner.
When I was ready to return, I didn’t do so with some lofty, challenging dish, but instead with a simple and quick one that had been nudging at me ever since I first saw it in the cookbook, Plenty. It was the perfect dish to welcome me back — easy, filling and kind to my belly. And with the way things have been lately, we could all use a little more kindness.
