Well, my tacos and black bean burgers from this weekend have mostly all been eaten, so I needed something warm and delicious to fight against the cold temps. We were projected to get up to 3 inches of snow last night, so when my alarm went off this morning I jumped out of bed to look. Nothing. Not even a flurry. I know a lot of people across the country are really tired of snow, but I was hoping for one more snow day this winter.
I'll give you a recap of Monday, since I didn't last night. It was the usual smoothies for work, and I was huuungry when I got home from work. So, I whipped up a massive quinoa salad. Yum!

|vanilla protein, spinach, carrots and hemp seeds|
This weekend, I'm going to get to see my best girlfriends, and I'm more than a little excited.
I snacked on some yellow bell pepper and pesto while I decided what I wanted in my salad. I decided to put everything in it. It was awesome.
After my disappointment over no snow this morning, I got my smoothies ready to take to work and got the crock pot going.

When I got home, the whole house smelled like curry! I was hungry when I got home, but not ravenous like Monday. I still munched on some pepper and pesto, and I checked on dinner.

I went and did a Barre Amped DVD while I baked my acorn squash (cut in half, de-seed, place in glass baking dish with a little water, bake at 350 degrees (F) for 45 minutes), and when I got done, dinner was ready! The curry was a little mellow on flavor because I didn't add any salt, so I thought I would spruce it up once it got on my plate.
Bodhi is happy it didn't snow. She says she's ready for spring.
