Guess who’s still struggling with this?
I’m under a lot of stress. Some of it good, some of it bad, some of it exciting. It is enough to make me double up on my meds. The stress of maintaining my title as the world’s most brilliant, hilarious and general bad ass blogger is a lot, y’all. (Kidding. I’m not comfortable mentioning here what is truly bothering me. I think it is one of those things that once I get through it I’ll be able to write about it. Right now it is too raw.)
But I digress.
I truly sometimes worry that stress of reaching my goals and that of the pressure I put on myself may kill me before I get to them. At Non-Con a few weeks ago, JC Little spoke about this beautifully. Her words (and pictures) cut through me.
When I think about the stressors, I sometimes feel like I can’t breathe.
So I’m overeating. And trying not to. But even when I’m perfectly full, all I think about is eating more for that few minutes of distraction from what is truly bothering me.
I’ll never understand people who lose their appetites in times of trouble. All I want to do is stuff those feelings down with mounds of cheese and pasta and bread and pumpkin spice everything.
Speaking of which.
If you’re going to eat your feelings, you should probably do it this way:
Notice I said “try.” That means you have a bite and I’ll have the rest.
Since I’m not really feeling like sharing, you can make your own by laying Crescent rolls flat on a cookie sheet. Place the wheel of brie (We cut off most of the wax rind because that stuff is safe to eat but straight up nasty, yo.) Put heaping spoonfuls of pumpkin butter evenly on top of the wheel and pull the sides of the Crescent Rolls up and over the cheese to make it into a closed pastry. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-35 minutes. Serve with crackers, apples, or grab it with your grimy paws that can’t wait to stuff it into your brie hole.
You know you want some. Buy some brie.
