It's so hot right now in my household! Holy cow, I am sweating bullets and it doesn't help that I am eating some hot curry on a hot summer day. I am on a tight budget...at least til payday! but I the only thing I had on hand was a meal replacement drink which is for emergencies. It wasn't an emergency just yet.
I had to get up at work at 5 in the morning with only five hours of sleep, after I came home to my moms house, I crashed hard! I took a 2 and a half hour power nap. The extra zzzz definately got my creative mind juice flowing.
I looked around the kitchen for something I can just pop in the mircowave. nada! ziltch...Then I saw that I left a bag of dried barley I bought a month ago and curry powder. Perhaps curry infused barley?
I scoured the freezer, I spotted one salmon patty that I left many many months ago. I wasn't feeling it, but it wasn't the time to be picky. I was huuuungggrrrrry! oh but then I remember I left some TJ's Meatless Italian Sausages, I had two links left. Cool, something I can work with.
And I also left a big ass bag of frozen stir-fry vegetables that I bought from Costco many months ago too.
I seem to always leave stuff at my moms house.
I just threw everything together and create a curried stir-fry dish, nothing technical...just easy. The barley went in the rice cooker, thank goodness for a rice cooker because I don't think I can moniter any grains on the stove top.
