Hi kids. Happy Wednesday.
Today was a day for errands… grocery shopping, a quick nutrition appointment, and prepping for the big adventure next week.
I woke up feeling refreshed (for the first time in a long time) and took my time this morning with a cup of coffee. I started my day with scrambled eggs and a huge slice of grilled eggplant. I love my double-burner griddle, it cooks things perfectly.
After breakfast and a shower I made my way out for the day. I didn’t have a huge plan – just needed to make dinner for the family, and possibly buy some new clothes for Dallas. I headed out and ended up going pretty far.
I found an adorable pair of leather boots.
Then I went to Trader Joe’s. There isn’t one anywhere NEAR close to my house…but as I said, I went far today. I love this store though – fresh, cheap produce, and so many specialty items.
Cheap, super bright berries inspired me to make my own fruit leather. I eat fruit leather as often as I can.. my local grocery store has it, but its full of fruit juice on top of the fruit thats already in it. It can get kind of sweet. Trader Joe’s has natural fruit leather that has no added ingredients and is much better, but I don’t have a local TJ….boo. For my dad’s birthday we bought him a 10-tray dehydrator that is perfect for drying leathers, and that is what Im in the process of doing right now. It takes forever! Here is the beginning:
I’ll do another post after I figure out if this worked. I still have two more hours of waiting before I know! Lookin’ good so far though.
For dinner I made Peanut-lime chicken curry. My fam loves spicy thai food and I found this simple recipe on Pinterest the other night. It hit the spot for sure.
This over a little bit of rice was spectacular. I bought a head of cauliflower with the intention to make cauliflower rice tonight, but there were too many things going on. That is a project for a couple days from now!
Here is the link for the chicken curry recipe.
It was delish and I don’t want to take any credit for it!
Has anyone ever made their own fruit leather? Ill be back soon to tell you how it turns out.
