I’ve always struggled with being able to relax. Often I will do something calm for an hour and then my mind will start to drift to (fun) things to do and relaxation is over. However, I find organizing and getting things done so fulfilling that it’s often just my way of relaxing! The point of the confusing story is that today I had nothing else to do today. The house is totally nested, the honey-do list is complete, and my to-do list is at a bare minimum of weekly work right now. So we just floated around the house reading, making dinner, watching a movie. It was a nice day!
Tonight’s dinner superstar was a ton of okra from our garden baked to a cornmeal crisp!
We used my Better Than Fried Okra recipe and let them cook an extra 10 minutes for extra crisp. This is my favorite way to eat okra! [Also Matt’s new favorite veggie to grow.]
A slab of tofu was baked alongside the okra – just tossed in some olive oil – and then we sauced it up with some Bone Suckin’ Sauce to finish.
And on the side – leftover millet that was well blended with a few heaping tablespoons of coconut butter! My favorite way to consume millet : )
Lackluster photos tonight because it was so cloudy-dark by the time we sat down to eat that we had more light inside than out.
We ended our day by watching half of the movie Into The Wild, which we are really enjoying!! We’ll finish it tomorrow night because reading hour is about to begin. The AC is off and the crickets are chirping in a cool 66* outside. Makes me feel like I’m letting a little wild inside…
