Hello fellow bloggies. Thank you for boosting my spirits yesterday. Your comments brightened my day, thank you, thank you!
Happy St. Patrick’s day! Did you go all green?! I always manage to have some green on me, but since I was in a not-so-good mood yesterday, I forgot that today was 17th. One tradition that I have carried on every year since I came to the US and got acquainted with this holiday is, baking the Irish Soda Bread. The husband loves it too. I think my breakfast problem is solved for the next few days!
Since green was the theme of the day, dinner had to involve the color. Per the menu plan (See, I knew it was St. Patrick’s day until Sunday, but it magically escaped mind over the week), I was supposed to make Aloo Palak (Aloo-Potato and Palak-spinach)
The curry was enjoyed over a bed of cooked millet. This was my first time trying millet and I think it is a great alternative for white rice. I have tried quinoa, bulgur, brown rice (which is my new love by the way) and now millet! Toasting the millet in the pan prior to cooking in water is the key to keeping the grains separate and not turn into a mush. I cooked the millet per Emily’s method.
Workout: 1.5 mile easy run, yes easy, and the best part I did not take any breaks today. YAY. Jogged at 4.2 miles till I covered 1.5 miles non-stop.
What did you do today for St. Patrick’s day?
