I could not get to sleep last night. I was up most of the night and now I am dragging around. I really dislike it when I get insomnia. Now I have to go teach tonight and I can hardly stand the thought of it. I am sure I will perk up before the day ends, right now?????
Mom is developing a bad chest cold. She coughed most of the night. She did however do my laundry yesterday and also made 16 dozen Swedish meat balls. That is enough for 8 meals. I think she over did it, now you know where I get my drive.
Hub's and I snuck out last night to get a few things. I needed a zipper to fix a costume for this weekend and also some purple satin to make two more Celtic belts for boys. Bought a few groceries hopefully will not have to pick anything else up but milk.
Yesterday I sewed on costumes most of the day, today I have to complete the belts if I don't collapse first.
It is cold and rainy today and we are sick of this weather. Blah!
Last night I made Golden curry for dinner. I don't cook many pre made foods but I do use sauce mixes for some things. If the spices and making of a sauce are too complicated and would cost too much time and money for things I would seldom use I will rely on a sauce packet.
Golden curry can be purchased in the Chinese section of your store. It is pricey. But every once in a while I find the mix on sale for 1/2 price then I take stock in a few. It is a nice change.
Put 2 cups of rice in a rice cooker and start. I use a mixture of brown, white and wild. I keep this mix in the fridge in a large 2 gallons bag. I get the wild rice free from an Aunt that lives on a reservation in Minnesota. She sends me 5 lbs a year, and I eek it out.
1lb of stew meat (purchased 1/2 off)
Brown this in 2 tablespoons of olive oil
4 carrots peeled and cut into 1/2 inch rounds
4 potatoes peeled and cubed
2 large stacks of celery 1/2 inch slices
1 large onion cut into 1/2 inch chunks
Brown all of this veggies for a few minutes with meat and seal flavors
then add 3 cups of water and simmer for 10 minutes
Add curry mix and simmer 10 more minutes, sauce should thicken test veggies if they are still too hard add 1/2 cup more water and let cook a little more. This makes 4 large servings and is delicious.
Have a a great and productive day!
