Even though I’m not working at lulu anymore, this week has been CRAZY. Even so, I’ve managed to ninja kick most of the to-do list and have been all kinds of organized up in herrre.
I even celebrated Indian Food Wednesday…. on a Wednesday!
Who knew?! 😀
This chickpea and potato dish was super easy and was the perfect fuel for a super busy afternoon 😉
All I did was steam 6 baby potatoes for 10 minutes:
Reserved the potatoes and in the same pot (on medium), sautéed 1/2 sweet onion and 2 cloves of garlic for 5 minutes.
To that, I added 1/4 t cumin, 1/4 t tumeric (a natural anti-inflammatory), 1/8 t garam masala, 1/8 t cinnamon, 1 can of diced tomatoes (drained), sea salt and pepper.
That cooked for about 10 minutes and then I stirred in the potatoes and 1/3 C chopped dried apricots.
At the last minute, a splash of fresh lemon juice and some mint for garnish.
This would have been lovely with some roti, brown rice or quinoa, but I decided to roll with gluten-free, vegan, RAW roti!
Also known as Swiss chard 😉 Heh heh. <—my fave green!
So delicious rolled up in chard leaves:
Some more recent eats:
Goat’s milk kefir, gluten-free granola + cinnamon
and two very scrumptious ballz 🙂
It’s workout time over here, but I hope you have a lovely night!
See ya bright and early 😀 (after am walk time)
Just for fun: 3 Things I Didn’t Know About the Pilot
Since the Pilot got home from Afghanistan –it was this 3rd time over there- we’ve finally gotten re-acquainted and settled back into a semi routine. All of the things I know, love and missed about the Pilot are still there, along NEW things that I’m just now figuring out.
1. He only eats half a cookie.
I discovered the above cookie in the fridge a few days ago. Half a cookie?! Who does that? I just don’t understand. It’s totally cool if you’re sharing with someone, but to eat half and forget about it… well I would never.
2. He always win.
I was the Fruit Ninja champion in our household, with a high arcade score of 504. He finds this out and spends days playing Fruit Ninja… to eventually show his iPhone with the numbers “645” on the screen. I had to wave the white flag at that one.
3. He calls his grey hairs “Ginas”.
What are some random things you’ve learned about your significant other/friend/cat?
