My plan to sweat out some toxins at hot yoga last night didn’t exactly come to fruition. Instead, I sweated out the toxins by sitting on the couch and watching Season 1 of Modern Family on DVD. Same thing, right? It wasn’t for lack of trying though. Some blogger buddies (I do not like the term blend) and I had been planning to go to yoga for a while. We finally found a day that worked for everyone and what do you know? The yoga studio changed their schedule and there was no 7:45 pm hot yoga class. Fortunately, we discovered this before going over there.
It was probably for the best because I was still hungover when I got home from work. Seriously, what has happened to me? Three beers and I’m almost out of commission the next day! I’ve become such a softie. If my college friends could see me now! Although, the same thing has probably happened to them.
Since my mom was here this past weekend, I didn’t do my normal Sunday night grocery shopping. I decided to go after work, after my run at the gym. I wanted to make something so I consulted my recipe box on allrecipes while I was at work. I never really noticed before, but apparently I save a lot of soup recipes.
Even though I sometimes order fish or seafood at restaurants, I cook almost 100% vegetarian at home. I guess it’s hard to find vegetarian recipes that aren’t either stir-fry, Mexican casserole (aka some sort of refried bean concoction) or soup. As much as I like soup, I didn’t feel like making it for the millionth time, so I went with the first non-soup recipe that looked good – coconut tofu curry and printed out the recipe.
After my 5-mile tempo run (1 mile warm up at 5.5, 3 miles at 6.0 and 1 mile cool-down at 5.5) at the gym, it was already 7pm. I knew that I would be eating a late dinner. I bought all my ingredients and when I got home, I immediately threw some rice into the rice cooker, so I wouldn’t be tempted to scrap the curry and eat pretzels and cheese for dinner.
I might have still had some pretzels and cheese while I was cooking, but that’s our little secret!
I used spinach instead of bok choy because the grocery store was out. This meal was good, but the Skinny Bitch Curry was much more flavorful. I did like the addition of tofu, however, so maybe I’ll add that to the SB curry the next time I make it.
Writing this post has taken me a good 45 minutes. My computer has suddenly decided to become extremely slow. It’s four years old and I guess that happens, but it’s so frustrating. I bought some new RAM for it which should arrive soon, so hopefully that will help. If not, I’m going to have to get a new computer which I cannot really afford.
Are you a Mac or PC? I’m a total mac snob, which is why I can’t afford a new computer.
