Correct me if I am wrong, but I have a feeling that a lot of us are feeling this way….in limbo.
We may have just completed a race and don’t know what to do next (rest, train, race again, etc.), we may be waiting for the Holiday season to REALLY begin, we may be waiting for change yet don’t know how to make the first step, we may be waiting to heal and all we can do at the moment is let time takes it course.
As for me, I am a little bit of everything (minus the racing). I’m counting down the days to New Zealand, I am anticipating a lot of change and I am trying to mentally pump myself up in order to embrace it, I am longing for this body to fully heal and get back in the swing of things (it’s getting there).
But the one thing I have been neglecting is learning to LOVE the LIMBO. Yes, truly LOVE the moment. We say all the time that we must LIVE in the moment, but do we really LOVE the moment? Of course not, sometimes it’s just not fun. But LOVING the LIMBO means we are loving the STATE/STAGE we are in because ultimately it will bring good, it is purposeful, it will makes us stronger, wiser, etc.
That’s if we let it……….
This weekend I was in the kitchen, working, loving the limbo. When it came time to prepare a REAL meal on Sunday night I was at a loss. I had not been to the store in days, nor did I want to go. So I took what I had and decided to make it great (or at least try).
Sage Sausage Cakes
- 1 cup chopped sausage (I used chicken sausage, but you can also use tempeh, pork, turkey, etc)
- 2 tbsp GF flour (can also use corn starch)
- 2 tbsp chopped sage (if dried us 1 tbsp)
- 1 egg
- paprika (optional)
- black pepper (to taste)
- sea salt (to taste)
- oil or (for pan)
- BBQ sauce
- Choice of Cheese Topping (shredded)
- combine sausage, egg, and flour in bowl. Mix well and add in herbs, seasoning, etc. Mix again. Form into patties (makes about 2 small or 1 large), set aside. Heat skillet on medium heat and add your oil or butter. Place your patties on the skillet and let them cook thoroughly on each side. Should be about 3-5 minutes on each side. The patties will come out golded brown. Top the patties with BBQ sauce and Mozzarella cheese then serve.
- Repeat this recipe to make multiple cakes.
Are you in limbo? If so, how will you LOVE it?
Ponder that thought my dears.
I apologize if you now have the LIMBO song stuck in your head. I can’t get it out of mine. haha.
