It’s raining, it’s pouring…

It rained all day today!!  Luckily on my walk to the gym this morning it was dry, but on my way back I got soaked!  That teaches me to go out without an umbrella in Vancouver!

A good thing about the rain was that it definitely made studying easier!  I didn’t get too much done today though because I got a late start to my morning and spent a little longer at the gym than I typically do.  The day flew by and before I knew it, it was dinner time!!

I didn’t feel like cooking anything that required a lot of ingredients so I used a pre made sauce and whipped up an indian inspired meal.  I used Patak’s Tikka Masala Sauce and added it to some sauteed veggies and tofu.  We had it served over short grain brown rice, alongside a salad.  The veggies I added to the sauce were zucchini, leeks, and mushrooms.  I lightly steamed cauliflower to add in the end because I wanted to control how soft it got, I’m not such a fan of mushy cauliflower.

The sauce was okay.  I would have liked it spicier and I felt the flavor was too simple.  It was very tomatoey.  We have enough leftover for tomorrow night so I think I’ll doctor it up a bit with some more spices!

A little while after dinner I was craving ice cream!! I happily gave in to what my body wanted and had a bowl of neapolitan with some nanners!  It hit the spot!

Well, this is a short post but that’s expected since I really didn’t do too much today 🙂  Hope everyone’s having a Happy Tuesday!

Is anyone doing anything crazy/interesting for St. Patricks Day??

I’m not really.  I just realized today that the only green thing I own is my Nalgene bottle!  I’ll have a green salad for sure tomorrow!  Or maybe Andy will let me borrow one of his shirts….

    Oh that ice cream looks so good!
    We don’t really celebrate St. Patty’s day over here.. I believe it’s a much bigger thing in the states due to the Irish background of so many people..

    Ooh, that Indian dish looks so deliciously saucy! Yum!

    I’m not doing anything super special for St. Patty’s Day, but I am making my first Irish-inspired feast! Irish soda bread with seitan corned “beef,” and then chocolate stout cupcakes for dessert! Can’t WAIT!

  7. Not really doing anything for St. Patrick’s Day, I did remember to wear green though! 🙂
