My Fair Lady!? Anyone!?
Whew! Two classes complete. Two to go. One exam on Friday and another on Monday.
Had a delicious EarthFare salad for lunch with my friends.
Let’s see if I can remember….
Greens on the bottom….grapeleaf, garbanzo salad, penne pasta salad, blackberries + pineapple, granola (LOVE their buffet granola!), kale salad, snap peas, kidney beans, corn, blue cheese, a hidden piece of salmon….and a partridge in a pear tree!
Plus a yummy tea
I also brought my crackers to share. Had a few of those as well
I walked to the bathroom at EarthFare and stumbled up on a sampling of chocolate PEANUT BUTTER!!! You bet I ate that whole sample 😉 It was good, but not as good as Naturally Nutty Chocolate Vanilla Almond Butter. Gotta get me some more of that stuff! [But oh no, I don’t see it in the store! I wonder if it’s STILL in the trial stage!? The vanilla almond butter is just as good! Like frosting]
*Insert MNT exam here*
Once I got home dinner was almost ready! But I was not ready to eat! EarthFare was filling today.
On the menu: Crockpot Curry Chicken + Fruits
I put two FROZEN Greensbury Market organic chicken breasts in the crockpot this morning with a can of coconut milk and 1 tsp each of cinnamon and red curry powder
I set it to low and came home 6 hours later to find tender cooked chicken….and curdled coconut milk!? Not sure why the milk curdled since I’ve cooked with it many times, but it was still good.
So at 5PM I added a bag of broccoli + cauliflower plus 8 chopped apricots and about a quarter cup of raisins and they cooked for another hour or so. Was going to add eggplant, but I figured there wasn’t enough liquid for both.
Garnished with more cinnamon and greek yogurt. The dish wasn’t perfect, but it tasted AMAZING. The dried fruits were plump and sweet and the chicken shredded-tender. Loved it! Would have been good with some brown rice underneath as well.
I almost forgot – Matt’s coworker, Kruti, send him home with a special fried dough treat for me to try!! It was awesome – sweet and spicy at the same time. Went well with the curry!
After dinner we watched the movie Chocolat. Loved it!!! I was captivated by the plot the whole movie, and I loved the characters.
Of course, one cannot watch a movie about chocolate and not partake. [If only I had a mug of that rich hot chocolate!]
I give you my Chocolate Chest
It is filled with all kinds of chocolates that I stash away
I even have a Cadbury creme egg from EASTER! I have no idea how I resist this stuff, but I will tell ya that I sneak chocolate from my chest at least once a week and it does not get blogged!! This with wrappers are saved for special occasions, hence the egg.
I made myself a nice tasting plate of chocolaty treats.
A Fleur de del Caramel by Recchiuti from the Foodbuzz Festival, a piece of Curry Vosges from Marathon Val, a bite of Brownie Points from VeggieGirl and some Scharffen Berger semi-sweet, almost from Foodbuzz Fest, which I think is the best chocolate in the world! DROOL!
I ate my chocolates in honor of MICHELLE’S BIRTHDAY!!
Off to read Wicked!
