Ricotta Mashed Potatoes From Sedcution in the Kitchen

I know I have been quiet. The reason is a simple one, I simple wasn’t in the mood to write. Truth is that work place drama I talked about in Chocolate Sour Cream Mini Donuts, really took a toll on me. In the end, all I will say is thank god it is finally over and I got apologies from people.

Although I went through hell during that whole ordeal, I do believe everything happens for a reason. If anything that drama helped me open my eyes. Since I turned 40 in October, this past month I realized so many things. My 30’s was finding myself, and my 40’s is about being myself what I thought was real around me isn’t, and time to break away and just be me and stop waiting and pleasing other people.

It isn’t a bad thing to do things for yourself, in fact, sometimes you have to. I am who I am, I realized I was throwing out some calls for help, but the louder I called out, no one heard me. That drama at work helped me realize this, it was a similar situation. The more I said I did not do that, the more no one listen.  We all are guilty of being so wrapped up in our own lives, that sometimes we just do not see what is going on right in front of our faces. Like I said, everything happens for a reason. As I always said, change is good, and I also realized it is ok to be just you.

Sometimes accidents happen when you are cooking. Everything happens for a reason, and those accidents can end up making a dish much better. That is what happened in the creation of these mashed potatoes. It was an accident that I added ricotta to mashed potatoes. I took a little taste and wow they were so good. My accident turned out to be a good thing. On a side note, I do need to not text and cook at the same time, that is how accidents do happen.
