Hooray for tomorrow being Friday! I am ready to end this week and look forward to a relaxing weekend. I spent too much time today spinning my wheels on a software issue at work with frustrating results and too many other deadlines to meet. I hate stressful days at work, it can be so hard to leave those problems at work. So I’m working on a new playlist for an intense cardio workout to blow off a little steam and forget the frustrations of the day. Plus I’m adding a Bob Marley playlist to my iPod for tomorrow at my desk, I have a craving for reggae lately thanks to the warming weather and need to mellow out a bit.
For lunch I had my black eyed peas leftovers.
They’re just as good the second day, maybe even a little better since the beans absorbed more of the flavor.
Since I’m on a fennel seed kick, I got experimenting on a new raw soup for dinner.
Fennel Pepper Soup for One
- 1 red bell pepper, roughly chopped
- 1/2 clove of garlic
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds
- 1/2 water
- 1 tsp. fennel seeds
- 1/8 tsp. dried thyme
- 1 tsp. pink salt
Blend all ingredients in a blender to a smooth puree and enjoy.
It worked out well, fennel seed goes nicely with red pepper flavors with a sweet and savory combo.
So, any exciting plans for the weekend?
