Sleeping, shopping and curry

After getting home around 2 a.m. this morning, I was planning on sleeping until about 9 or so, but Suzie had another plans (meaning it was 7:30).

“You WILL wake up and take me outside now, Mama!”

After I couldn’t say no to Evil Eyes, I was up and went ahead and made breakfast since I was practically starving.


Nothing like banana PB oats to quiet a growling tummy stomach. I scratched that out because the word tummy actually bothers me and I don’t use it normally, ha ha.

I also had some coffee with light vanilla soymilk in a Christmas mug, which is another one of my favorite things about this time of year 🙂


Once everything settled, I organized my grocery list and coupons for a while before going to my mom’s house for a bit and having lunch at Subway (veggie delight-no pic).

Then I hit the grocery stores and did some major damage…for $54!!


That big can of oats is actually hiding a lot of stuff, ha ha. Today, I shopped at Target, Walmart and Kroger which is convenient for me because they are all right in a row on the same street (two in the same shopping center).

I found some great deals and used lots of coupons…I love trips like this!

I got hungry after all of that excitement and had a spoonful of peanut butter to hold me over. I didn’t want to eat too much of a snack because I needed my appetite good and ready for a special recipe!

I decided that tonight, I would make Mama Pea’s Vegetarian Curry. I followed her recipe pretty closely, making only a few adjustments for what I had on hand.


I decided to use spinach, mushrooms, potato, onion and carrots for my veggies.

And my favorite tofu!


Plus the rest 🙂


This was my first time using canned coconut milk, so I was excited (it doesn’t take much).


I followed her directions to the T and everything came together nicely. I started by sautéing the veggies.


Then I made the curry sauce, which smelled delicious.


All together, on top of some brown rice.


This dish was pretty good! I think I would like to make it spicier next time (even though my nose was still running) but it was definitely the best curry I’ve made yet.

Big thanks to Mama Pea for providing this easy recipe which I plan to make again in the near future (plus I have leftovers from tonight, yippee)!

Since Josh is currently yelling at the Texas game, let’s hear it…What is your favorite college football team?
