Hi everyone~ my soup was great today for lunch! My throat is a little sore (I think because I’m so tired and answer like 500 phone calls a day at the Restaurant) and the soup was perfect for it. That, combined with the crackers and grapes (and a small piece of dark chocolate!) kept me full for a couple hours until I snacked on a few nuts–brazil nuts and cashews–and a plum midday.
I got home from work a little later than expected and didn’t have enough time to make brown rice, which I had planned on having with with my leftover dal, so I made some more couscous instead! I know brown rice is better for you nutritionally, but you can’t beat couscous when you are in a time crunch. I also quickly stir fried some kale in a little bit of coconut oil and hot pepper flakes to round out this very spicy, rejuvenating meal! This dal has def. gotten better as the days go by…its a great thing to make on a Sunday and eat all week long in a variety of ways (aka in a pita, on couscous, on rice, with other Indian sidedishes….).
I’m off to my last night of laminated doughs class AND my last night of school before break! Wish me luck on my practical! I’m hoping for an early night because I am very tired!
