Well, it’s Tuesday morning. The Patriots’ season is over and it’s time to move on. Go ‘Hawks, I guess.
I know, I know, it’s just football and it’s entertainment and not a real life problem.
“I just want to tell you that some people have war in their countries.”
But yesterday I spent my day off from work basically in mourning. Normally I would be so excited to have an entire day available to spend in the kitchen making yummy stuff. Instead, I made exactly one thing and I did so only in the interest of stuffing my face with sweets.
Rice Krispie treats! I got this ultra-simple and delightful recipe from Becky of Glue and Glitter. The coconut oil totally elevates it. Try this; you won’t regret it.
With that, here is the complete, unabridged list of what I accomplished yesterday:
1) Made coffee.
2) Turned the knob of the dishwasher to “on” (probably the most useful thing I did actually)
3) Melted some stuff in a pan and called it “cooking” (seriously though it’s a fab recipe and I recommend it) 🙂
4) Ate a whole bag of baked Tostitos scoops. Also almost an entire jar of salsa, plus my lazy bastardized version of guacamole where I take an avocado and mash it with salt, pepper, and cayenne.
5) Watched five movies. Actually almost six, but one of the free movies On Demand that I started was too scary and also stupid to continue.
And no, I never got dressed.
But like I said, today I am moving on! Step one:This one was a real winner: 1 cup water, 1 frozen banana, 5 frozen strawberries, 1 tbsp. hemp seeds, and 2 collard leaves, plus 1 cube of coconut water that I had frozen in an ice tray. I cribbed that brilliant idea from Kathy of Happy Healthy Life.
Step two: tonight I actually will make dinner for myself and my dear, sweet, loving, patient husband. I’ve got this Black Eyed Pea Curry with Collards and Potatoes from the PPK on my mind.
