I went on an actual date with my husband tonight! Out of the house and everything. I don’t know what it is about leaving the house, but I’ve found Brent and I always have better conversations and focus more on each other when we leave the house. The lack of TV, internet and iPhones is a big help! 🙂
I also met my friend Sheila for a workout at our school’s wellness center today. Such a good idea! I probably wouldn’t have worked out today, if I hadn’t planned on meeting her. We’ve planned to continue working out together a few times a week after class!
OK, onto the food. During school, I’ve been trying to plan at least one crockpot meal a week. It’s so convenient and I want to love my crockpot. My main problem with the crockpot is that so many of the vegetarian recipes I find for it are soups and chilis. While I obviously love a soup, we eat them so often for lunch that I’d like something different for dinner. While I was searching the internet for non-soup crockpot meals over winter break, I came across this recipe for Gingery Chickpeas in Spicy Tomato Sauce.
I really liked this. I served it over a bed of spinach along with some half whole-wheat naan. Brent seemed to think it was “pretty OK.” Given the ease and convenience of the crockpot, I definitely think I would make it again.
Do you have a favorite (vegetarian, non-soup) crockpot recipe?
