These burned taco chips are a violent reminder to always go slow and be mindful. I was not in the mood to make dinner yesterday but I did anyway. And while I was doing it I could feel myself being careless and rushed but I didn't do anything about it. I chopped fast and rough, I made a mess, and the biggest mistake of all: I got my oven mit wet. So when I reached into the oven to retrieve these bad boys the heat turned to steam in my glove immediately and I dropped the entire tray on the bottom of the oven. Luckily Matt was there to clean up my mess as I tried to bring my red fingers back to body temperature.
The lesson: Take your time. Set the pace for mindfulness. Enjoy what you're doing or find another way to do it. And lastly, there is always takeout.
