A Break Up
Just a quick Thursday night post to announce...I'm breaking up with Braun.
I know, I know...we were the last ones you expected...but isn't that always the case?
It was a difficult decision, but after making Dave's Moroccan Spiced Chickpea Soup again tonight and opting not to completely puree it (like Braun and I did originally) it made me realize I've become too dependent...too much of an "enabler" to Braun's willingness and ability to pulverize - into oblivion - even the most tender of ingredients.
Braun's power to turn a wilted spinach leaf into something barely recognizable (frankly) has become frightening...and so while this may seem abrupt - for me - it's the right decision.
Dave Lieberman's Moroccan Spiced Chickpea Soup (no doubt delicious WITH Braun) was over the top wonderful....without him....just as Dave intended.
So sure... ...I'll miss Braun.
And there will be times (out of pure habit) I'll appropriately pivot over to his drawer.... yearning for what we once had...
But with this post...I am hoping to find the strength to rid myself of Braun...
...if only for the weekend. ;)
