These are busy days

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see.
~ John Burroughs

Today, I wanted to break the glass on the universal globe-governing Clock and pull out its hands.

How can there be so many things to do and so little time?

Tonight is looking to be a very late night for me, so logically, a proper cooked dinner was in order. I went to the supermarket after work and came home to cook this from Tessa Kiros’ “Falling Cloudberries” (long time no cook-through, I know):
#54 Lentils, Rice & Red Onion Salad – Page 348

I was initially dubious about the method Tessa gave for cooking rice, but it certainly worked well. This meal is great on a cold night, the different parts of this salad come together to form a cohesive symphony and it is pretty filling too.

Modifications: I added some rosemary, a tiny bit of paprika, curry powder and cinnamon. I also halved the quantities as it was just Jono and me tonight.

The picture above depicts this morning’s breakfast: pear, avocado and capsicum salad with a squeeze of lemon juice, some fresh rosemary leaves and black pepper. (I’ll probably be adding rosemary into everything for awhile now too, as my mom gifted me with a big bag of fresh rosemary sprigs from their garden…)

K gotta run.
