I cannot believe that I don’t have class tomorrow! I keep thinking about Wednesday as tomorrow and am so relieved when I remember I have a day to recoup and catch-up. I’ve already got a ton of work to do!
My lunch held me over SO well today – I was just getting hungry when the husband reminded me that if we didn’t make dinner at 7 he was going to have to go to bed without, so we quickly jumped up to make it.
On the menu: Jenna’s Spicy Tahini Sauce Stir-Fry
The sauce was amazing! I love tahini, and it was def. the highlight of the recipe. Since she warned her recipe makes a TON of sauce and there are just two of us, we reduced the recipe by a lot. I eyeballed most of the ingredients but here’s my approximation for two people:
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 2 tbsp hot water
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 2 tbsp tamari
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp cider vinegar
- 1.5 tbsp sesame oil (sadly, we didn’t have chili oil so I used a little more of this)
For the rest of the meal we cooked 2 servings of whole wheat spagetti and tossed that with sauteed bean sprouts, snow peas, frozen bell peppers, and 2 cloves of garlic (I didn’t want to put raw garlic in the sauce or I’d be tasting it for days). All topped with some microwave-toasted sesame seeds! We left off any meat components out of laziness/cost, but this would have been great with tofu, shrimp or chicken.
I should have listened to Jenna and made more sauce – I am sad it’s gone!
In addition to chopsticks, I had green tea
Some of you wonder how I keep track of all of my life’s tasks. I couldn’t do it without Todoist! It’s this great to-do list manager that lets you have different categories, color code, create recurring events, etc. I have a category for real “To-Do’s”, one for groceries we need, one for each course, and one for all of my assignments. Here’s my upcoming week, which compared to weeks in the past, is quite short at the moment!
Here’s my Upcoming Assignments folder, where I can easily see everything I have to turn in for the semester (with the exception of tiny things and tests) in order –

I’m off to finish up the evening and get in bed early since last night’s sleep was a disaster. My plan for Tuesdays + Thursday is yoga + oats, followed by studying while I digest, followed by a late-morning workout. Guess I need to start the day at 6am instead of the recent 8am mornings now that I have school work to complete!
