I am a creature of habit. I really don’t enjoy getting pushed out of my comfort zone….I realize the good after the fact and realize I can handle whatever life throws at me….but in the middle of it….I hate it.
Yesterday, I was part of a baby shower for a very dear friend, bible study leader and former bride. I love this woman and it was an honor to shower her with love in a tangible way. It was a blast working beside other woman I deeply love to prepare for the event. Part of what we did to prepare was sign up for and make food. Well, this girl took FOREVER to sign up and was left with a food she’d NEVER made.
To say I was nervous/anxious/not happy about it would be a little bit of an understatement. Add to the fact that I had never made this food, quiche, was that it had to be made with a few dietary restrictions. Oh my goodness, I was a MESS! Even one of my friends, who helped prepare as well, had to say, stop stressing about it, it’s one of those “can’t mess it up” type foods! It’s a party! Have fun!
So I pulled up my boot straps, bought the ingredients and set up shop.
The kitchen was a tornado of preparation. When I had the mixture ready to go, it looked way different than I expected.
But I put the little guys in the first batch in the oven and hoped for the best. Afterwards, I had a mom and husband approved taste test, so I gained a little confidence. I finished making the rest and called it a night.
They were apparently a hit because I didn’t bring many home. And now, I have a new food to add to my list of “can makes.”
It made me think, wow…if I can do this…what other things do I write off because I think I can’t do it, but actually can….AND do it somewhat well?
