Pozole is a classic comfort food around these parts. I could use a little comfort today as I head back to work after 6 whole, glorious days off. I also need something easy, because today is shaping up to be a doozy.
I’m sure everyone is feeling the post-holiday drag. How do you manage to get motivated again and back into a routine?
I’m pretty sure its going to take me at least through the end of next week to feel “normal” again, that is, if I wasn’t heading off to Mexico for a vacation from my vacation! Guess that means that a normal routine will have to wait!
Instead of focusing on the comfort this simple, slow cooked Pozole offers from this hectic workday, I will now focus on the vacation inspiration its providing. Only 7 more days till I’m off to paradise…….I can do this!
