Give Peace a Chance [Jul. 13th, 2006|09:24 pm]
[Current Mood |tiredtired]

I'm still trying to recover from my California trip - I feel like I've been in a bit of a coma since coming home - I've been so painfully tired, it's just started to let up today.
Perhaps it was the overwhelming combination of Maybelline!!© Hyde♥♥♥♥ throwing shamelessly girly airkisses to the band and the whole intensity of it - but I sure hope they come out with a DVD of the tour since I feel like I was sleepwalking thru it... lalalalalalala ♫♫♫♫
Since returning, I felt frazzled to the quick. I found myself falling asleep while driving home at lunch yesterday... eeek! I managed to cook dinner today, so *yay* that's an improvement (Leigh helped himself to Mexican carry out yesterday as I slept thru dinner Zzzzz)

Speaking of dinner, what's your favorite quick meal? I Often get too ambitious for the amount of energy and time I actually have (like today - Tofu/Kale/Oyster Mushroom quiche with Parsley Garlic Noodles & Salad... )

my favourite quick 'meal' is bread and butter XD

...in quotations since it's not so much a meal as a snack but yeah....usually if i want something quick (and i actually have veggies lying around) i'll make a salad, because salad is yum :)

My mom likes to make some kind of pasta (never really matters what, haha), with garlic butter ^_^

It seems we wore a lot of people out after CA! I feel terrible that rabi got so sick, too. I think I was more tired when we got back than I realized - When I went back to work, I would keep feeling like the ground was moving underneath me if I stood still too long, or walked :P

Lazy cook here...

couscous + peas + tabasco sauce

brown rice + honey + any assortment of vegetables or apples. Those mandarin oranges in the cans w/the syrup are nice w/it since their tartness counteracts the honey.

fruit juice + frozen fruit in the blender

Usually quick and easy for me is soup of some kind in the crockpot or the stove.

On the stove:
soup base + frozen vegetarian gyoza + lettuce = yum! (don't ask me why I decided soup needs to have lettuce, but it tastes totally different that way. When I make it for Gerry, I also add asparagus, which is his favorite veggie.)

My totally bizarre crockpot soup:
soup base + bag of roasted corn from Trader Joes + can of Southwestern corn + can of potatoes + 1 large onion + 1 bay leaf.

I'm not certain where the pictures are from - maybe from the 666 tour book?

Here's another recipe someone just gave me...

You only use one pot!

Banana Chick Pea Coconut Curry

One chopped onion
One tablespoon butter
12 ounces coconut milk
1 1/2 cups cooked chick peas
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup cashews (unsalted)
1/2 cup tofu (in chunks)
4 quartered bananas

Saute the onion in butter. Then gently add everything else. Be careful with the tofu and bananas. Don¹t stir too much or they'll get too soft. If you like this dish with more liquid, add cream or coconut milk. Cook down if you want it thicker.

This dish is great over rice or pasta or as a desert by itself or over ice cream. It freezes well for future use too.
