Last week, I made Indian Cauliflower Curry Stew, which I got out of my cookbook Good Housekeeping Budget Dinners: Quick and Easy Everyday Recipes. I am definitely not a sandwich-for-lunch type of person, so I love to make casseroles or crock pot meals that I can bring for lunch. And, since Scott packs/makes his own lunches, I can be creative and make stuff he would never eat :-)
Sorry this post is light on pictures, but I made this in the crock pot so there wasn't a lot to photograph! Technically this is not a slow cooker recipe. - it says to make it in a dutch oven over heat, and it takes less than an hour. But I REALLY love my slow cooker, so instead, I threw all of the ingredients in and let it go for a few hours!
The rice cooked just fine in the slow cooker, although the cauliflower and rice were a bit mushy in texture. I can see some people not liking the somewhat mushy-ness of the dish, but it was just fine with me! This might also have been because I used frozen pre-cut crinkle carrots and frozen cauliflower.
-sunday, i ran 5 miles with my friend K, avg. pace 10:23
-monday (aka today), i ran 2 miles in my neighborhood, avg. pace 9:38 + did strength training at home. strength training at home never goes quite as well as at the gym, as i only have 5 lb weights... but M wasn't feeling well and i couldn't drag myself to the gym this morning!
