When I was sitting in the bus, on my way to work this morning, I was thinking about how fast the weekend went by. Wouldn't it have been nicer if it were a day longer? What did I do this past weekend? Cooked, ate, cooked and watched movies. Honestly. Thinking about it makes me wonder - Won't we ever get tired of eating? Such was the weekend.
On Friday, we made Paneer in Schezuan curry using Ching's Gourmet Sauce. This, because, we had left over Paneer from the Dinner with the Woodys', and we wanted to use it up before our big trip two weeks from now. It turned out absolutely yummy. A has this new found love for the numbing peppers and demands a handful of freshly ground numbing peppers in any Chinese dish."Throw it in, baby!", is his new punch line. And he panfried the dumplings from HMart.Great dinner, no doubt!
That, with brown rice.
We ate to our heart's content. After dinner, we watched The Wolfman. Sometime in the middle of the movie, we had a Root Beer Float. Another addiction from the dinner with the Woodys'.
On Saturday, we had tickets to The Inception. So, we had a brunch at home before heading to the theater. And, it was roasted Veggie and Black Bean Tacos. So delicious!
That night, A made Egg curry
and cooked up the frozen paranthas (another leftover from the dinner with the Woodys')
and I fried Lotus root, in the Teapot style. Excellent!
And we watched another movie -Singam. It was just a timepass movie.
On Sunday - Radish sambar,rasam,Bhendi (Okra) sabzi and pappadum for lunch. In the evening, I made aloo gobi, for the rest of the week.There is enough leftover and variety to last for the rest of the week!
I think this is what fasting and studying does to a person. I had been studying for this Interview the whole of last week and have been on a strict diet the entire week - only fluids and veggies and beans. No rice. No bread. No pasta. And it has worked amazingly. I lost 3 pounds in 3 days! I have 9 more to lose.Am back on my diet from today.
Though we have been cooking a lot and eat a lot of variety, it was in normal quantities. I don't think we overate. Except for that extra scoop of ice cream on Saturday. But I guess indulging once in a while is OK. Let me see how this week goes!
