it’s 11PM and I just finished work (since 9 am) 😯 and I want to SCREAM!!!! I thought my internship ended last week and from now on I’ll be more relaxed. Nop!!! This seems a nightmare, a nonstop nightmare!!! 👿
Anyway… I’m here to blog about something positive but couldn’t hold my stress completely. Sorry 😦
Continuing with Sunday’s good eats. I got fresh organic lettuce, tomatoes and basil, so all I wanted for lunch was Capress salad.
simply lettuce, tomato, mozzarella, basil leaves, balsamic and olive. Simple, fresh, very summer and totally delicious!!!
paired with organic corn. So sweet! 😀
For dinner I made something fancy: sweet potato gnocchis
mashed sweet potatoes
ricotta + egg yolk
and voila! gnocchis!!! 😆 It was actually really simple to make.
Ingredients (4-5 serv)
- 2 large sweet potatoes (> 1 lb)
- 1 egg yok
- 1/2 pound ricotta cheese
- 2 1/2 cup WW flour
- 1/2 tbsp salt
- steam sweet potatoes and mash it
- mix ricotta cheese with yolk
- mix 1 + 2 and add flours to form a soft dough
- cut in gnocchi shape
- cook gnocchi in boiling water for about 7 min until they float
marinara sauce, fresh basil leaves and homemade bread
oh… and don’t forget the parmesan cheese!!!
I slept 9 hours and got up to enjoy a great breakfast (still good mood) 🙂
peach + poached egg + bread + avocado & LC
At 10 AM I started to stress out (work related) :(. Lunch MUST be a quicky. So I made throw together lettuce, tomato, mozzarella, millet, wheat berries, balsamic and olive (heavy on this) to something messy but actually tasty.
while I checked blogs (to de-stress a little bit)
I just realized that a salad with good amount of olive oil tastes so much better and so satisfying! I used to add little (<2 tbsp) oil to salads, but today by accident, I added more (probably 3? ). I must admit, salads taste much better this way.
Okay. it’s getting really late… I’d better go to sleep soon and pray for a better day tomorrow. Night~~~ 😉
Q1: How much oil do you add to salad?
Q2: How do you deal with a stressful day?
