Give me the beat [girls] and free my soul, I wanna get lost in your rock and roll, and drift away!
^^ One of my favorite songs!!
Great day today!! The past few Sundays I did a lot of writing, but today I just worked on the household, which I find very relaxing. We had our doula meeting (SO helpful!! So excited!) and then I read some more Ina May and then I actually IRONED MY PILLOW SHAMS after they came out of the dryer! Could that be a subliminal nesting urge?! I also folded the shirts in my closet (if you watched this video, you’d know that is not the norm!) (I was freshly pregnant then!) And organized all of our cloth diapers.
The above was eaten at 5pm and took away my appetite until about 7:30 when I really still wasn’t hungry, but started to think about dinner. Rice was in the rice cooker and the menu in my head read: Rice + Beans + Garden a.k.a. rhythm, rhyme and harmony
This delicious mixture materialized in about 10 minutes.
Brown rice topped with a can of pinto beans and frozen PEAS (I love peas!) plus swiss chard from our garden and a sauce made of nutritional yeast. The sauce was simply 1/3 cup yeast, 1/4 cup milk, a generous pinch of salt, and a sprinkle of smoked paprika. Cashews on top – totally delicious!
I’m starting my Monday behind in my workload but totally organized in the dwelling place.
