Sometimes I want to switch lives with my dog. Now, I don’t mean forever, of course, but maybe for a few hours. I say this now as I’m on my third cup of coffee, gripping to life, while he takes his second nap of the day. Mind you we woke up about an hour ago. I love life, I’m incredibly blessed to be able to do what I love most for my job. I know. But you know what? Some days I want to nap 16 times a day and not have to worry about feeding myself.
I know how horribly lazy that sounds, but it’s true. I’ve been SO BUSY lately with work, prepping for the move and getting ready for a 10 day trip, I’ve been running around like all of my legs and arms have been cut off. Which when you cook for a living, it’s a little hard to manage your job without arms and legs. I wouldn’t mind napping for 16 hours a day. I sure wouldn’t.
Although I will say, dogs have the short end of the stick when it comes to food. I couldn’t imagine eating the same thing, twice a day, every day for the rest of my life. Well, I could if it tasted like this cake. I know, that sounds like I’m bragging but I’m serious. It’s sweet, but not too sweet, filled with perfectly juicy berries and is perfectly moist with just the right amount of crunch. I could probably get on board with eating this everyday.
I said probably. Don’t hold me to it if you see me stuffing my face with baked ziti and calzones.
