Hello folks! I hope y’all had a great weekend. I sure did, it was fun, productive, relaxing with a little bit of laziness thrown in! Perfect, right?!
The first thing that I did this weekend was to go to the farmers market.It was my first visit this season and I was blown away by the number of people. So after a lot of roaming around, thriving on the excitement in the air and watching lots of cute babies and doggies, I came back with this loot.
- Swiss Chard
- local tomatoes
- And overpriced eggs.
Other things achieved,
- Meal planning
- Shopped other grocery items.
- Did a lot of merciless decluttering which was actually very very therapeutic
- Some Make ahead meals.
In the Kitchen on Saturday I managed to take the dish from my last post to a whole new dish. By adding some chickpea flour to the blackeye peas curry, I turned them into fun patties to be used in sandwiches.
One of the best chicken I have made in a long time, not my words, the husbands. I don’t eat chicken much so you have to rely on his recommendation. He gave it a 4.5/5.0.
And finally for dinner tonight, I made Madhur Jafferey’s Chickepeas in Mughlai curry. Yumminess in one bowl! We needed a change from our abused overused Chana masala recipe
and this one was just perfect.
Served over a bed of quinoa,
06.05.11: Workout wise I reached another high. It may be trivial for all advanced runners but I ran 3.5 miles yesterday. I was so freakin happy!
06.06.11: And then today to relax those muscles, I did a 20 minute yoga session at home.Equipped with a new yoga mat (in purple!!) I enjoyed yoga all the more 🙂
Did you have a fun weekend?
