For some reason, I can't get out of my winter funk. We've had a few beautiful sunny days, yet I still feel as though I need to go into a small cave and hibernate. I feel such a stunting of my creativity during these dark days (we've had a lot more dreary ones than sunny) and a complete lack of drive. I think part of it is all of the illnesses that my family has been through during the past month and our time in familial “retrograde” –we seem to be emerging slowly (emphasis on the slowly more than the emerging). Life these days just feels like walking through glue.
To give myself some energy, I've been continuing my protein streak and also trying out variations that the boys might eat. Tonight I made these delicious gluten free fish sticks and served them with steamed kale on the side. The fish sticks are very kid friendly, as is just about anything fried. Given that they're rather high in protein, I find them adult friendly too, and quite tasty.
