Hello summer! You are here, and I'm very happy about it. I'm also hot and in desperate need of a cool and refreshing afternoon cocktail (or mocktail). Cherries are in season and the inspiration for this drink.
The other night I wanted to go to yoga, but had zero dinner plans or motivation. It was 1pm so I needed something to cook over a period of time, but didn't require a lot of work. A quick scan of my fridge revealed I could easily make a pot of curry! I LOVE curry for its warmth, comfort and nutrient packed sauce.
Yesterday was a difficult day. Lots of work stress, plus I took on a new private yoga client. Needless to say, I found myself still working at 5:45pm (gasp!). By the time I left my desk to make dinner, I realized the kitchen was still in disarray from this morning (and last night's) activity. Oye. I hate cooking in a messy kitchen. So I decide to take a breath and just clean while listening to my podcast (loving the new Serial podcast!). It turns out this is quite pleasant.
So then comes the task of deciding what to make. By then it was 6:20, quite late to start planning and cooking. You see, usually I have a plan. Each Sunday I plan my meals and groceries for the week. But last Sunday I didn't have it in me so I just purchased standard groceries.
