Has this week been dragging for anyone else? Thank God tomorrow is Friday! 🙂
Work was just as tedious this afternoon as it was this morning, but luckily I was able to keep my head from making contact with the keyboard.
Another double shot of tea and nibbling on my container of dried fruit all afternoon did the trick.
The idea for tonight’s dinner actually popped in my head Monday and I have been patiently waiting for a night to put the idea to the test.
Monday night I was exhausted, Tuesday night I had my massage, and last night I drove to the other side of Orlando to pick Maddie up.
Finally tonight it was nice to come home with no plans and have the time and energy to experiment in the kitchen. I love experimenting in the kitchen. Some people unwind in front of the tv, I unwind in front of the stove top.
Unfortunately my recipe for Lentil and Rice Stuffed Cabbage wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for.
I still believe the idea was a good one, but the execution wasn’t quite right.
I’ll spare you the recipe, but I basically stuffed cabbage leave with a pre-cooked mix of lentils, tomato sauce, rice, onions, mushrooms, and spice then baked it at 350 for 15 minutes.
It was missing something. More spice? More sauce? Softer cabbage? hmm… something to consider for next time.
On the side I had some roasted rutabaga nuggets.
Dessert was peppermint ice cream with a crumbled joe-joe on top.
Nom Nom Nom Nom
Can you spot the latest addition to my wall of racing paraphernalia?
I’ll give you a hint.
That’s right I finally got around to framing my bib and medal from the Disney Marathon.
I love how the frames make my marathon accomplishments stand out among my other achievements.
(Yes, I know the disney frame is tad crooked, but after 20 minutes of frustration I decided a little crooked was just fine. 😉 )
I’m a nerd and proud of it!
The faster I get to bed, the faster the weekend will be here! Yipee!!!
