I must confess. I’m a recovering perfectionist.
Even on something as simple as whipping up a fabulous meal on the fly. I’m just not naturally one of those people who says, “Oh, let me use what I have on hand right now.” If I don’t have every single ingredient for a recipe, I’ll defer eating…or run out to a restaurant!
Please note I said “recovering.” So when I got hungry this morning and went to the fridge, and the main ingredient staring back at me was tofu.
Tofu for breakfast? Does that sound good to you? I have to admit it made me a bit uncomfortable to think of eating tofu for my first meal of the day.
I accepted that feeling…and went for it; decided to create my own recipe. I like to cook, and I added ingredients I thought might substitute for eggs. It was amazing–a little browned, crunchy on the outside–totally delicious!
You know what? There’s more than one way to accomplish a task. You can even surprise and impress yourself with the end result by stepping out of your routine.
