Vacation begins now! I can’t believe that I’m not going back to work until March 28. It seems like such a long time, but I know it’s going to fly by. Sorry for the missed post yesterday. I ended up going out with my sister and group of friends to a local bar to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The place was pretty packed, the drinks were cheap and I was still home in bed by 1 a.m. I’m actually surprised I wasn’t more tired this morning at 6:38. I’m sure it’s going to hit me tonight!
I also received my goodies in the mail from Kayla at Little Miss Healthify yesterday. So many recipes sound delicious in this cook. With a week off, I should be able to try at least a couple new ones. And these granola bars all look delicious. I’ve never tried any of them, so I’ll make sure to let you know what I think. Thank you Kayla!
I made a decent dinner for myself yesterday, but I think I should have let all the ingredients simmer some more. I didn’t let the liquid reduce enough. But the bowl was still good. Next time, I want to add more veggies in the mix. Unfortunately, we didn’t have any.
One thing that having a blog has really taught me is that I’m a really inexperienced cook who is eager to try new things. I mess up a lot (brownie madness), but I don’t quit.
Tomato, Tempeh and Zucchini Bowl
- 3/4 C. tomato, chopped
- 1/2 C. zucchini, chopped
- 1 handful spinach
- 1 Tbs. kefalotyri cheese
- 1/4 C. tempeh, chopped
- olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. onion powder
- 2 tsp. balsamic vinaigrette
- parmesan cheese
Heat olive oil, garlic powder and onion powder in a skillet over medium heat. Add spinach, and let cook for a couple minutes, then reduce heat to medium-low. Add tomatoes and zucchini and let cook 2-3 minutes. Stir occassionally. Add kefalotyri and tempeh and let cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add balsamic vinaigrette and let cook for another 1-2 minutes, until liquid is reduced. Let cook until it looks eatable. Transfer to serving bowl and sprinkle with parmesan, to taste.
Not sure what my plans are for tonight. I think I’m going to take a rest day, though. Tomorrow should be pretty jam-packed. If all goes as planned, I’ll get my brows done, get a hair-cut, work out, possibly get a car wash and get some reading in.
Tempeh…yay or nay? What are you up to this weekend?
