My Not-So Exciting Life – With Pictures!

As per Monday’s post, you’ll have to excuse some missing posts this month. My semester is pretty crazy so you’ll have to bear with me. I have a project due tomorrow so I have to make this quick so I can finish it up!

Our a/c is fixed! HURRAH!!!! If you don’t know, it’s best to change your furnace filter if you have central air a few times a year because if you don’t, the air gets blocked, starts leaking and then you pay $150 for the guy (or girl) to come in and empty out a small pipe that takes around two minutes to do.

Breakfast! Due to this heat I still cannot bring myself to cook anything hot so breakfast was natural vanilla yogurt with ground flaxseed, chia seeds, half a large banana and two sliced strawberries.

The no-cooking transitioned into lunch where I had a salad (same type as the last post), slice of oat bran bread with peanut butter and some berries!

I do love my berries! LOVE that cherries are in season again! YUMMY!!!

When I got home I figured the only thing I could do without generating heat was to flip this switch:

It’s my rice cooker! My favourite kitchen appliance! I decided to carry on Gina’s Indian Wednesday theme and have brown rice with palak paneer!

I may have another plate, it’s TOO good! Palak paneer is my favourite!

And later, as a treat, I’ll pop some popcorn!

I’m about as exciting as staring at the back of my hands right now. What’s going on with you that’s exciting?!

Quick & Dirty

Good evening, my friends. My apologies but this will be short and sweet, this is my last evening I have to study for tomorrow’s final and I need to be responsible at SOME point in my life!

Dinner had to be another quickie. I had a couple of leftover veggies I wanted to use up, swiss chard and the rest of the eggplant!

I chopped ’em all up and added them to the wok with a bit of EVOO. I cooked ’em down for about 10 minutes and then added my favourite Gits product, the paneer tikka masala to the last couple of minutes! I simply added it over some coconut brown rice (1 cup of rice to 1 cup each, coconut water and regular water)! Voila!

Too good! I’d better have that now before it gets colder! Plus, for dessert:

Cherries!!!

I probably won’t get a chance to blog tomorrow but if I’m done my exam early I’ll try! If not, have a great Friday and I promise to be back on Saturday!
