Mount Veggie

Sometimes I crave vegetables like crazy. Fine, often I crave vegetables like crazy. When I crave vegetables, I don’t want a flimsy side of broccoli (actually I do like broccoli but that’s not the point). When I crave vegetables, I want a pile of vegetables roughly the size of a small mountain. So that’s what I made last night.

Potato and Mixed Vegetable Curry

Cook baking potato. I’m lame and just make mine in the microwave. Chop up veggies of choice – I had zucs, onions, and green peppers on hand – and sauté in frying pan. Crumble in tofu. Toss in some chickpeas, because all meals are better with chickpeas. Mix in ¼ cup of curry sauce – I enjoy using Golden Temple sauces. Add salt, pepper, oregano, ginger, and curry powder. Cube baked potato – watch it, it’s hot, don’t burn your hands. Add vegetables and curry sauce over potato. Enjoy your pile of vegetables.

  You are what you eat?

Sorry no actual photo – I’m still working on that camera situation. But this was good and easy. And it looked pretty appetizing, too. Promise.

Good Start

Yes, yes, yes, it’s pouring rain. I’d say it’s raining cats and dogs, but not even Hadley wanted to be outside today (oh the corniness). But all the same, I had a good start to my morning. Usually when I commute, I listen to my Ipod on shuffle. Today, I accidentally left my gym mix on. Now I’m pumped to start the day. I think more playlist will have to be made soon.

Also, since it’s so nasty out, I switched from greek yogurt back to maple brown sugar oatmeal. It’s oh so warm and comforting on a rainy day. Bring on the rain storm – armed with my pink rain boots, busted pink umbrella, and oversized men’s Eddie Bauer rain parka, I’m a regular Morton’s Fisherman.

What do you do to jump start your day?
