Creature of Habit

If you have never taken a personality test you should think about it. They are fascinating. Because I work in the human behavior industry I have taken several and I know my natural tendencies pretty well. I like organization. I dislike fly by the seat of my pants. I am a creature of habit. 

Today I was set on making Rueben Chicken. My problem was that although I knew the ingredients by memory I needed the recipe for the order of them and the baking instructions. I could not find it. In my mind I was visualizing the location and I was positive where I thought it was but it was nowhere to be found. Thank goodness for Pinterest. 

Over the years I have learned to be more flexible and open to possibilities. I prefer to think of it as “plan for the worst and hope for the best”. That doesn’t mean that uncertainty and change don’t cause me some amount of stress. I just roll with the punches a little better. 

The weather was lousy today so I made good use of my time in the kitchen. AND It turns out that I could have made that dish from memory after all.
