No really, incredibly lazy. This is my day in a nutshell:
Wake up. Morning yoga. Breakfast. Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. Lounge.
That went on for quite a few hours. Then I had a burst of energy, so I decided to get all dolled up for the gym. Went outside and almost got blown over by the wind, so I scurried back inside to do some more lounging. I have a love/hate relationship with lazy days. On the one hand, it's nice to just simply do nothing. On the other hand, I feel, well, lazy. I packed some things and donated clothes; that counts as something, right?
Then I chair raced down the hall with my roommates/friend Keith and did a backflip over the chair. Needless to say, I lost.
Then I made dinner after being inspired by Angela's recent eats. Totally basic and simple, but comforting:
The vegetables were bomb. I just chopped up:
- 1/2 sweet potato
- 1 orange pepper
- 1/2 yellow onion
- 1 zucchini
- 1 huge garlic clove
and tossed it with 1 tbsp olive oil, S&P, dried basil and oregano, then popped it in a 400 degree oven for around 40 minutes. Perfetto.
The only roommate who brought pots/pans is moving out today, so I didn't have my standard pot to cook my rice. So, after some googling, I decided to try making rice in my crock pot. I added 1 cup of rice and a little over 2 cups of water, put it on high for around 2-3 hours, and then ate a nice pile of mush. I swear, one minute it was still firm and looking promising, and the next it just turned into the consistency of oatmeal. I like my rice sticky, but not to that degree.
Actually, one of the things I have yet to master is rice cooking. I can make some killer quinoa, kickin' couscous, marvelous millet, etc, but rice is still a fickle little grain. Don't get me wrong, I'll eat it regardless, but I want to make the most perfect, fluffiest rice ever.
To top off my lazy day?
Who needs a man when you have Endangered Species chocolate? I apologize for my hair and clothes, but it is lazy Sunday after all.
