Sup monsters! Can you believe that it is Sunday already??? The weekend went by so fast! Hope everyone had fun! I still have two more days off though 🙂 Booya.
I totally skipped breakfast this morning. I went to bed pretty late last night so I might have stayed in bed until 11:30 am!! Super sleeeper. It was awesome. I bummed around with Beasley while Andrew went to a movie and after about an hour I made this salad
accompanied with more soup
My brother dropped off some sprouts he sprouted with the soup yesterday. I don’t know how he does it. I FAIL at making sprouts.
Anderr and I made a meal plan and a grocery list and went grocery shopping! My favorite thing to do haha. Our list was looong and when we got home I was starving. We bought some new gluten free brown rice that takes 50 minutes to make so while that was cooking I munched on some black pepper and olive oil Triscuits with goat cheese and mashed blackberries. Try it because you’ll love it 🙂
The rice turned out soo good! Cooked it a little too long (rice times are always effed up) but it was still really really good. I was lurking a lot of blogs last night and I found myself drooling over stir fried rice dishes. So obvi I had to make some today. I made stir fried rice and veggies with homemade red thai curry paste. AMAZING. I have never cooked with lemongrass before and it was surprisingly easy. Oh and I got to use the chopsticks I got from my friend Kristi for Xmas!
