Sunday we saw a minus thirty-six (-36) degree whether. It snowed all day and the wind blew fiercely. I had no intentions of going outside so I followed my example of the day before but instead of baking a cake I baked chicken. I had invited a couple of friends over for dinner but was not surprised when they called and cancelled. In fact one was not well, a sinus cold, not fun trust me I’ve had those. It feels like someone is punching you in the face at a nonstop pace while your eyes pulsates. Yuck, like I said, no fun. If I didn’t want to go outside in that mega size refrigerator why would they? It was all good. I was not angry. I understood, it was simply too crazy cold out plus I plan to do the friends over for dinner another time. I went ahead with cooking my meal although I scale back quite a bit. I cooked two rotisserie chicken, I figure it will last me the week, one was curried/turmeric seasoned with garlic, gloves and other spices and the other was tandoori. The different flavors helps to break up the blandness of eating the same dish everyday. I also baked a few pieces of lamb. For the sides dishes I cooked corn, spinach mixed with mathi, steamed broccoli and opened up a small can of red kidney beans. This will last up until my daughter returns then she will devour it all and then say, “mommy what’s to eat?”.
Today for lunch I took lamb, red kidney beans and broccoli. I ate half and refrigerated the other half for tomorrow. I will also take some of my spinach methi and some corn to add to the little piece of lamb and broccoli. When I came home I ate a piece of tandoori and one piece of curry/turmeric, for dessert I had a slice of my sponge cake.
