Boy, I’ve had more than my share of disjointed days lately. Yesterday, I had lots of errands in the morning, then stopped by to see Gail and her Mom to deliver cat food! Gee, I thought I stopped buying cat food when my cats went to kitty heaven. 😦 I was glad to do it and I stayed to visit for a while which was very nice. Her Mom is doing so much better, it’s great to see it! 🙂
I didn’t get home until after 1pm and I was starving. I threw together Greek yogurt, unsweetened applesauce, pumpkin pie spice and honey. It looked so delicious and I was so hungry, I never took the time to take a picture. When dinner time came, I made a steak and baked potato for Ralph and started to put together my yummy dish.
Started with my usual olive oil and garlic, Portobello mushroom and also zucchini which I forgot to take a picture of until it was in the pan!
Added the red bell pepper (one of my favorites!)
…then the snow peas (finally finished them from 2 weeks ago, but they were still perfect!)
And lots of spinach ( I wasn’t getting caught short this time!)
The finished product looked like this…
Served it all over couscous…
It was SO good! I love it when my photos show the steam coming off the food. It shows that I truly just cooked it. I always hate in cookbooks and magazines when the food looks anemic, I like warm spicy food and that’s what I make.
I keep meaning to explain the “pie plate” that I usually use for my stir fries. After years of cooking this way and making big portions because it’s mostly veggies (and all for me!) 😉 this works well. So many times if I use a standard dinner plate, I make a terrible mess and it lands in my lap! I realize I should probably pretty up my photos. I probably will as time goes on. One reason I’ve been doing this is because all of my real dishes are packed at the moment. When I get to New Mexico, you’ll see what I can really do with my tasty offerings!
Now to accomplish some things for today. Weight Watchers was not kind to me today, 1.4 pound gain, but I will keep at it. After that, it’s been a good day and I’ll update all the fun tomorrow. At least it’s not snowing! But it is raining…when I consider the alternative…I’ll take the rain!
