Back to Lentils


Whew…I am tired. So tired I didn’t bother to shower after the gym (ewww, gross – I know). I got up at the crack of dawn to prepare for an IEP meeting for which the parent did not show up:( The good news? I’ve only got three more assessment cases to close the door on before I will be officially finished with the work load at my internship. I’m starting to feel stressed about the move though. Like all the logistics of moving my whole life. So do I buy boxes or just put clothes in trash bags? When do I change my mailing address? When do I stop buying groceries and start eating only gross pantry combos? There’s just so many things to think about. Speaking of pantry combos, tonight’s nourishment came in the form of spicy black lentils and kidney beans from a Trader Joe’s Indian meal. We had that strange South Indian bread on the side instead of naan and the texture combination was pretty awesome.


Now I’m suffering from the I was just on vacation indulging in amazing food and I want to eat everything in sight syndrome. Do you guys get that after coming back from a trip?

Despite my glorious weekend, I didn’t get much rest, so I’m getting in bed as early as possible. Oh, and tomorrow is already Wednesday…lovin’ this short week!

    I hate when parents bail at the last minute for an IEP, so annoying. I’m onto weird pantry combos right now because the move is T-2weeks, but sometimes the surprise combos are good like the panko crusted turkey sandwiches I had with mayo, basil and red peppers, random but delicious 🙂

    Going through the same pantry dilemma over here…movers are coming on Monday but we don’t leave until next Thursday. The other problem is that we want to eat at all our favorite places before we leave! #firstworldproblems right? Haha.

      Ha! We’re trying to do the same… Good luck with the move!
