Yikes, I’ve been hurtin’ all day because I am so exhausted. Just that overall “dead on your feet” feeling. I actually took a break at work and ran to starbucks for a soy latte! I never do that! I did, however, feel better with my soy latte and my snacks and am happy to conclude my work week! Now I just have to get through this practical tonight and hopefully I will get to bed at a reasonable hour.
For some reason, I’ve been craving tempeh all day. Who craves tempeh? When I got home I kicked myself into high gear and produced a really great tasting and satisfying dinner. I used the leftover zucchini, eggplant and canned diced tomatoes to make a simple ratatouille (SO easy–just saute them all together with a little bit of water and voila!), heated up leftover brown rice and made ED&BV’s Temp-eh! again with balsamic maple dipping sauce (also out of the same cookbook). Simple, healthy and oh-so delicious!
How’s that for a 30 minute meal? I think I could challenge miss rachel ray for that one 😉
Sorry this is such a short post but I’m headed to school early to work on my formulas for tonight’s practical. I’m a little anxious since its my first one for the class! I have to make a chocolate peanut butter pie in a graham cracker crust and a apple pie with a lattice crust. My chef instructor this time is much stricter on grading than my last one!!
