I dropped that ball yesterday and missed posting for Single Serving Sunday. You may not have even noticed (which if that’s the case maybe I should rethink those posts), but in case you did my apologies. I had a quick single serving breakfast recipe that I had every intention of preparing and posting, but the first time it did not come out right and then I ran out of eggs and didn’t get to the store until it was too late to fuss over. Maybe by next weekend I will have it ready haha.
With one week until I need to send the final draft of my dissertation to my committee I have been in super-productive mode. Hence my lack of a post yesterday. I did next to nothing other than write all last week until Friday afternoon when my brain died. After sending my Introduction to my advisor I just couldn’t process nerdy thoughts, so I took the night off and hung out with friends Friday night. The rest of the weekend wasn’t as writing-productive as I would have liked, but I feel less tense and my apartment is cleaner. Accomplishments come in many forms.
For all my fellow stressed out people who are desperately trying to get things done while still getting some sustenance, here is a quick and healthy meal for you tonight. It’s kind of like those healthier pasta recipes that mix in fettucine-sized slices of zucchini. This time whole wheat spaghetti is mixed with broccoli slaw and tofu which has sauteed into a spicy-honey sauce and topped with peanuts, cilantro and green onion. It’s spaghetti gone Thai!
