‘Twas a dark and stormy afternoon – we lost a plant in the wind. We will rebuild!
The good news is it meant peppers for dinner!
I ended up driving to yoga and back because of the rain – ate half a Hungry Bar before I left! These bars are not cheap, but they are comparable in price to there bars on the market and are my favorite “real food” granola bar ever. This one is a sample of the new flavors Emily sent me to test for my store, but I think I will have to order replacements for eating when the baby is here – I hear my appetite will be through the roof! I put them in my freezer and they last forever.
Prenatal yoga was good – tons of chest opening tonight which I desperately need! I’m still getting a lot of burning under my ribs, which my doctor says is my muscles stretched to the max. It’s worst at the end of the day – like now!
Have you had forbidden rice before? It has an awesome texture – very chewy! I picked some up at WF a few weeks ago and cooked it in the rice cooker this morning.
I didn’t even bother to clean the rice cooker before cooking a second ingredient – green lentils. They were both ready to go for dinner so Matt just had to worry about cooking up some veggies.
He made a saucy topper out of tomatoes and okra and then grilled those fallen peppers – all served over the lentils + rice. Goat cheese on top, which totally made this dish!
Very unattractive, but very nutritious! Lentils are one of the worst foods in the world to showcase!
Note the construction zone! We had to eat inside!
After a nice dinner, we cut open a melon Matt brought back from the market. I have no idea what kind it is, but if I had to name it I’d call it a Cucumber Melon! It was oblong and has that coolness that cucs do.
It’s crunchy too – but sweet and refreshing!
Two more tasks and I’m off to read! Started The Hand That First Held Mine this week – a hand-me-down from Karen!
