Oh, So You Think You Can Sandwich Bread?

Lately I’ve been talking out loud to whomever is in charge of this world and been asking them “where in the flamin’ heck does the day go?” I am seriously on struggle street to get everything I have on my plate completed and in some sort of orderly fashion. Something usually has to be missed or shoved to the back of the “let’s get sh*t done” line.

Honestly I think I have some sort of disorder which reduces my productivity and ability to prioritise… I believe it’s called motherhood. I can almost hear the mocking tone of life as it laughs and heckles “Oh, so you think you can have a social life, work and be a parent all whilst functioning on broken sleep?” or “It’s amusing that you think you can write a blog, study and get your chores done all in your day” “Bwahahaha! I laugh in the face of your attempted organisation tiny woman!”.

Well f*ck you weird floating voice of life! I will get stuff done, despite you making time go faster! I swear I lose an hour a day.

I just want the simple things, like being able to have a coffee/lunch date with my girly  mates guilt free or sitting down at night watching an episode of a tv series which I am already 10 years behind everybody else on (Did you know that Friends has finished???)

Despite this floundering position I find myself in, laundry will get folded even though it still sits on the kitchen table for a week before I finally put it away. Dinners may not vary from week to week but they will bloody well be delicious and healthy! And yay look at me the kids are still clothed, fed and watered! I’m doing ok… right?

So now that you think I have completely lost my marbles, I’m going to tell you that this recipe is not one of my own creations. I found it on Grass Fed Girl and I have memorised it and make it 1-2 times a week. My kids have a “sandwich” everyday in their lunch boxes with almond butter and honey on it. I use this as toast and for paleo Ruben sandwiches. It also goes down real nice slathered in ghee with a big bowl of soup. I wanted to share this one with you so that you know that I don’t always “create” original recipes and that its ok to be making the same stuff each week if your kids like it and its easy. I won’t be judging.
