Spice It Up

It has been a laid back Saturday.  We walked the dogs, had a late breakfast and then Rick had to work at the paper for a few hours.  I did a little house cleaning, washed yoga blankets and took a nap.
These trainings that I have been doing on Fridays are exhausting.  I told Rick that it's like being on stage performing for 6-8 hours.  But it's exciting because I am helping a couple of counselors become yoga instructors and they are going to be wonderful.

I made a hominy cilantro chicken soup last night.  I thought Rick was going to eat the whole big pot.
We are having leftovers for supper tonight and he is excited.  The soup was exactly what I needed after training all day.  It was hot and spicy and soothing.  If you would like the recipe let me know and I will post it.  I can promise you there will be another pot at the Watson soon.

Last weekend I made Chicken and Chickpeas with garlic.  Sometimes you just need to shake things up a bit in the kitchen.  I bought a new cookbook, Mediterranean Meals in 30 minutes.  We have always had meatless days several times a week, but we are upping our plant based meals more.
In both recipes, the plants ( hominy and chick peas) were the base.  Tomorrow will be like last Sunday, no meat.

It's a sit home and watch a movie tonight, we both have been busy this week.
I hope your day has given you what you needed.  Tomorrow be kind.

  1. My day has been quiet and restful. Have done too much for the past few days and my bones are giving me a lecture.

  2. It sounds like a good soup. I'd like the recipe for the Hominy Cilantro Chicken soup please. We love soup... We also have meatless meals days our house. I have to have lots of veggies every day. If somehow I don't get my veggies, It just doesn't feel right.
    Hugs, Julia

  3. I have never tried chickpeas in my life I saw on a baking show that you can use the liquid from cans of chickpeas to make a vegan meringue
