Vegetable Bolognese

Posted: February 25th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , | 2 Comments »

This afternoon I headed out to Office Depot to buy some office supplies and organizational tools for school and my various jobs, and left empty handed. This particular location had NOTHING that I wanted, everything was overpriced, and I left completely frustrated. I’m an office supply junkie, so this was truly a disappointing situation.

Tonight was a low key dinner:

While I usually like to make my own salads (from a quality and price standpoint, usually the better deal) tonight we had a greek salad from Trader Joe’s. It’s perfectly portioned for two people, relatively inexpensive, and has a lot of little fixins’ such as feta and cucumbers that I don’t usually have on hand in the kitchen.

I made Devon some pasta, and I had a bowl full of leftover vegetables – steamed broccoli, chickpeas, leftover beet salad and acorn squash. Usually we have the same food, but there wasn’t quite enough pasta, and I didn’t feel like eating any. (Honestly, that’s a first..)

I actually topped all of this with some turkey bolognese, (also from Trader Joe’s), but it looked so awful photographed I thought I would spare everyone’s eyes, and assure you that it was absolutely delicious and surprisingly filling.

I didn’t really get in much exercise today, so I kept my meals light. It’s been an interesting mind game learning that I’m not actually very hungry when I don’t exercise – and I’ve been working to listen to my body rather than listen to my emotional cravings. It’s certainly a lifelong balancing act, but it’s been getting much easier of late.

    Oo! That lentil chowder looks great! I love the addition of coconut milk. I’m a coconut milk fan. And I’m sorry I won’t be in Boston to cheer you on with your marathon – I used to be at the half way mark making a ruckus with my Wellesley sisters…
