What a treat -- I don't actually have to work until 3:30 today, so I have had the most wonderful morning! I slept until 9:00 (despite the construction that starts at 7 am across the street from my apartment,) lounged around on the couch forever while eating breakfast (cinnamon-raisin oatmeal,) drinking coffee, and writing in my journal. I also managed to cook up a big pot o' black beans (most of which hit the freezer after cooling), wash a few dishes, do a load of laundry, and stew some chickpeas for lunch! Mmmm . . . .
A yummy, slightly curry-ish melange of chickpeas, carrots, tomatoes, spinach, and some "secret spices." I took pretty decent notes, but this one will need to be retested (I did not measure the salt, as usual,) before being included in the cookbook. :) (That's whole-wheat couscous hiding in the bottom of the bowl.)
Man, I'm going to have to finally get up off my tush, get dressed, and head off for work here in a little while. I'm so thankful for my relaxing morning, though! Hooray for lazy days.
