I find food prep very meditative. The beginning of the week was very stressful and resulted in three suspensions and a few parent meetings. Thankfully, I was back in my groove by Friday and it became my best teaching day!
This morning, I made rice wraps for lunch. I used avocado, grilled tofu, cilantro and carrot.* For dipping, I made a small mixture of satay peanut sauce and Sriracha.
I also made a big pot of Indian-style yogurt-covered chickpeas, which we are bringing over to a friend’s for a potluck later tonight. I really enjoy cooking and J. is easy to please. He’s not vegetarian but he’s happy to eat nearly everything I make him. He makes me feel like an awesome cook!
Of course, I’m looking forward to taking a little break from the kitchen. I’m excited to be returning to Toronto in a week and eating out Ethiopian injera and Shanghainese leek dumplings!
Yum, yum, yum!!!
*I had wanted to use the bean sprouts ($0.79) I’d bought in Rouyn last week, but I forgot to change the water and they rotted before I remembered.
