Riding the storm out
For some reason I feel like I have used that title before?
We are currently sitting through a line of thunderstorms, which we also had this morning. I’m hoping they pass through soon since I have to take Suzie out one more time!
Around 5:30 or so, I was hungry but not quite ready for dinner, so I snacked on some mixed nuts.
Then I did some studying…I have my first Exercise Science exam tomorrow! But I’m not even worried. These first few chapters have basically been a review of things I learned in Anatomy & Physiology last semester.
I have also enjoyed resting today. No napping occurred but lots of sitting with my feet up has 🙂
When I was finally ready for dinner, I made some Chickpea Curry!
I’d made this dish once before but this time the ingredients were slightly different. I used more curry paste and only added spinach since it was the only veggie I felt like putting in there.
Simple Chickpea Curry – Makes 2 servings
- 1/2 cup unsweetened plain soymilk
- 1 can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
- 1 cup frozen chopped spinach (thawed)
- 1-2 tbsp of red curry paste
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- Dash of salt
Heat soymilk and curry paste in a medium sized pan over medium heat until bubbling (stirring occasionally) . Add chickpeas and let cook for a few minutes. Add garlic and salt. Add spinach last and allow to simmer until most of the liquid is absorbed. Serve warm alone or with your favorite bread 🙂
I ended up having two pieces of whole wheat toast!
Then just a few minutes ago, I had some peanut butter because I was feeling a bit hungry.
Gosh I am so tired! But it is still storming. Once there is any kind of break in the weather, I’m running out with the dog, so I’d better get off here.
Ugh, Josh is yelling at the Giants game. Don’t you just love football season?
Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and have an even better tomorrow. It’s a new week, let’s set some new goals and make a plan to make them happen 🙂
