After failing to prepare lunch everyday like I had originally planned, I decided to prepare a make-up meal. Teaching, marking, chores and studying for my Master's degree simply became too much to handle and I was just unable to prepare lunch as I had planned. To console myself, I decided to prepare a meal that would make all my worries go away.
I began with two recipes I viewed this week on a blog I recently discovered. The Minimalist Baker has simple, but tasty recipes. I tried the No Churn Chocolate Ice Cream. Too good, Too GOOD! I paired this with some vanilla cupcakes, also from the Minimalist Baker. I love this site and can't wait to use this same recipe for my son's birthday party.
The main course consisted of Kale Salad which I found in Salad Samurai, Lentil Walnut Loaf (Oh She Glows), Yellow Rice, Roasted Vegetables and Sauteed Green Beans.
It was all worth it! I felt comforted and less guilty for not preparing lunch everyday. I don't know if I will meet my goals this week, but I will surely try!
