In a Curry

Friday, August 20, 2010

This morning started on the wrong foot toe. Literally. Yesterday morning I accidently got pricked by a tooth pick that was on the floor, and from then on my big toe has been throbbing. It brought back memories of when I got stung by a sting ray, because that's exactly how it feels. The pain is radiating throughout my toe which made the 35 minutes of my morning cardio a bit unbearable. leee sigh.

I hope I don't have to visit the doctor soon. Then I drive 20 minutes out to my way to get a pass for my car for nothing, unfortunately THAT was denied. I realized in tense situations, I hardly breath. So on the car ride home I did some breathing exercises to help calm me down, but I was a bit stubborn because I wanted to be angry. Then later on while I was cooking, I hit in the head on the cabinet door. Doh!

But you know what helped make me feel at ease? hot curried stir-fry on a hot summer day. Because I am weird like that.

Yes, another one. After coming to my moms house, I thought I had left left-overs. Nada. Ya know what? That's okay because it was so easy to prepare. I just threw everything together in a pan and waaahhhh-la!

Instead of TJ's meatless sausage, I had fake "chicken". I'm not intentionally avoiding meat, cause believe me I would use it! but I've just been using what left in the fridge and saving some money.

Served with barley. I am obsessed. It's a nice change from brown rice, it hit the spot and fills me up ~4-5 hours. Hopefully I am still hungry in a couple hours because I have dinner plans.

Time to do some summer cleaning and de-clutter my life before school starts, before I go. I leave with this flashback from last week.


Last week Jasmine, Ashley, and I ventured to downtown to watch a screening of Eat, Pray, Love.

I was excited, although I've never read the book. I was anxious to know the story behind Elizabeth Gilbert's bestselling novel. I think I was looking forward to EAT out of the PRAY and LOVE.

Great movie, it definately had sad, happy, hilarious, and life learning moments. Quite inspirational actually, I'm looking forward to reading the book now. That's only if I am willing to pay $12 for the book, here I come.

After the movie, we decided to eat at Fred's Cafe located in Old Town.

Steak Rancheros. So good. I assumed that the steak would be sliced, cause you know, I'm a diva like that. I need my steak sliced! I was afraid how the texture would turn out, because I've been to places where the meat was tough, bland, and chewy.

Let me tell you, it was some really good steak. Medium rare, mostly on the rare side. Soft and chewable, also flavorful.

Taco trio.

Jasmine with her chicken enchilada. I had a bite and liked it, I think the cheese made it taste good. Monteray? sp?


What makes you happy? And when you get upset, what do you do about it?

Gotta jet!

Angela, I replied to your sweet comment on my blog, but wanted to stop over here too. It's too funny reading this post because it sounds like me at certain points-I want my steak sliced too, and please don't let it be chewy! Probably why I don't eat it that often! And your curried stir fry is exactly what I would eat right now if someone could make me anything! For real, just douse some vegetables in a super flavorful sauce and I'm good to go! I think my husband and I are going to get Thai in a bit. Do you have a recipe for your curry sauce? I need to do more breathing exercises too-breathe in, hold, let it out. It helps when my body feels anxious. What do I do that makes me happy/for when I'm upset? I just let it out to God-who knows my thoughts, my joys, my frustrations anyway. I talk with those closest to me-my husband, mom, sister. And I try, TRY to choose a different attitude. It's hard to do, though! Like you said, sometimes I just want to be angry when crappy stuff happens! I've said before to my husband, "I'm in a bad mood" and he gently reminds me, "you have a choice to change it." Ugh, true. I'm a work in progress, my dear. Ok, longest comment EVER. I'm really looking forward to reading more, Angela!

mmmm the stir fry looks so good! I have put barley on my TO-BUY list, I haven't eaten it in ages!

I call my Mum or husband to pour my heart out when I am in a stressful/unhappy situation!
