I’m in a little bit of denial about Summer right now.
Despite this month being #NationalIceCreamMonth, I haven’t even made any ice cream this month! And let’s not talk about the beautiful rhubarb I ended up composting because I just didn’t get around to using it.
You see, it’s been an especially cold and grey San Francisco Summer. I’ve been craving curries and soup instead of Summertime treats. And I’ve also been heads-down on onboarding a number of new content clients. So there hasn’t been as much time for cooking and baking and treat-making.
The good thing about the less-than-Summery weather is it’s been the perfect time to get things more organized. I’ve put my local Container Store to good use, finding more useful (and smarter-looking) storage bins and boxes to deploy throughout the house.
It just feels so much more relaxing, especially in a small space like our apartment, to have everything tidied up and put away. Small spaces, in particular, can feel cluttered pretty fast. But having attractive storage that puts the clutter out of sight goes a long way for making things feel more relaxing.
Feeling that everything is in its place is always important, but it’s even more important when you are self-employed and working primarily from home. That clutter can become a pesky distraction that keeps you from being able to focus on your creative tasks.
Now that I’m feeling better organized and ready to go into the weekend without any distractions, let’s dive into this week’s Low FODMAP recipe round-up.
