1/31 Slice of Life Challenge: A Cheesy Start

I didn't want to post something along the lines of, "I have no clue what to write". But I must say, I have no clue what to write! I am staring at this blank post with the curser blinking intimidatingly and I keep thinking, "I was an English major, I should be able to write something!"

The same four words continued to dance in my head from earlier when I dappled with a new recipe from Pinterest: cheesy broccoli quinoa bites!

So I attempted a brief poem of my newfound obsession for a "healthy" snack I will definitely continue to make!

Cheesy broccoli quinoa bites 
fill my tastebuds with delight!
May I please, may I might, 
have more cheesy broccoli quinoa bites?!

Was that as painful to read as it was for me to write? I feel as if I should have a delicious poem unravel on the page, and yet my mind is preoccupied with to-do lists, lesson plans, grading, family, tax season, and cleaning. I can't seem to focus, but do hope--desperately--that the next 30 days come with a bit more organic grace.

Side note: The original recipe may be found here. I highly recommend trying it! :)
