Class was uneventful and before I knew it I was back at home. I’ve been slacking and haven’t been planning my dinners out and also skipped a grocery store trip this weekend since we had enough stuff to get by, so we’re in "dinners on a whim" mode.
Things I had:
- Leftover chicken
- Leftover squash goo "broth"
- A sweet potato
- Huge thing of spinach
=another crock pot meal!
At 4:00 I prepared the dish and set it to high for 3 hours.
First a nuked a tiny sweet potato and 2 carrots so they were slightly tender.
Then added half a cup each of rice and red lentils plus 1.5 cups broth
Then leftover chicken (only about 1/3 cup) pulled from the bone and our congealed squash broth from the chicken + squash dinner.
Then 2 tsp of red curry powder, 1 tsp yellow curry powder, salt and pepper.
I think this deer in our yard was rabid – he was dancing and doing weird things. I stayed inside.
And I ate this KIND bar for a snack. Don’t think I’ve ever tried this flavor and I loved it!!!
And at 7PM it was time to eat!
Curry Chicken + Squash Lentil Dal
[I’m not sure what the definition of a dal is, but I’m calling this one because it was goopy and had red lentils!]
Topped with cinnamon, yogurt and red pepper flakes and served on a bed of wilted baby spinach drizzled with EVOO
I thought it was appropriate to have curry for dessert too 🙂
Trying to motivate myself to do more research. I am good at finishing small projects, but I despite research papers 🙁
