    Fairly sedentary... I walk about quite a bit between classes. I also do yoga (including those poses) 2-3 times a week.

    Did you end up making the meatballs? If so, how did they turn out? Having issues making decisions about dinner tonight.

    I made them but I haven't tried them yet.

    The tomato cobbler is AMAZING though. <3

    It looks good, but I really am not a huge fan of cooked tomatoes unless they're in sauce. The biscuits sounded amazing.

    I ended up making this last night. Yum!

    A few alterations:
    - Left out tomato paste
    - Doubled curry paste
    - Cilantro instead of basil (I didn't want to buy it and I already had cilantro)
    - Forgot to put coconut milk in the meatballs
    - Used a little bit of toasted sesame oil with cooking spray to brown them in

    Served them with brown rice. I intended to add a vegetable, but I got lazy and changed my mind.

    You and I have the reverse problem: I don't like fresh tomatoes very much, unless they go with something. Generally speaking I don't like food that's crunchy and watery at the same time: melons, celery, tomatoes.

    @ veggies.

    I made similar modifications -- same ones re: curry paste and tomato paste, left out the basil, but didn't add cilantro.

    Did you end up with not a whole lot of sauce at the end, and too much ground turkey for the number of meatballs they wanted? That happened to me. I'm probably going to end up adding extra sauce, if my roommate has any of the bottled Trader Joe's Thai red curry sauce lying around.

    It also made SO MANY MEATBALLS. I froze about five or six servings of them (assuming 1 serving = 3-4 meatballs) in individually-sized containers. Decided to add some frozen veggies to each container: some of them have kale, some have spinach, and some have broccoli. Ended up being a really good way to use those frozen veggies up.

    Heating up some of the non-frozen meatballs tonight, and cooking even MORE vegetables to go with it: fresh spinach, red and yellow bell peppers, and snow peas. Pretty psyched!

    I halved the recipe, because it called for 2 pounds of turkey! But yes, I also felt I had insufficient sauce. I'll probably add some green beans to it tonight. I bought them, just didn't feel like cooking them last night. I should add some spinach and wilt that in with it too.

    Official verdict on the meatballs: Not bad, but too dry. Which I think must be a problem with turkey meatballs in general, since turkey is almost always dry. But the spices and whatnot were good, and they'd be even better with more sauce.

    Going to Trader Joe's today (I think) to buy coconut milk, so I can make more of the sauce and distribute it among my various frozen and refrigerated tupperwares.


    ----------------------------------------


    Update overall:

    1) Food is going really, really well
    2) Exercise and meditation are not going at all

    The meditation thing is because I had unpleasant experiences with meditation, and therefore avoid it like some people avoid tequila after a bad Saturday night. The exercise thing is because of really awful rainy/cold weather this past week, a job application that was stressing me out until last Friday, and THE GODDAMN SHORTENED DAYLIGHT HOURS.

    Ever since daylight savings time ended, I've had a really hard time getting up before the sun comes up -- and I've needed about twice as much coffee every day to feel "normal". All my usual methods* of trying to rouse myself in the morning COMPLETELY stopped working. So my plans for going to the gym before work are totally shot, unless I come up with a better way to get myself out of bed. And/or buy one of those SAD lamps.

    *I learned, a long time ago, that there was no way I could get out of bed without feeling completely awake beforehand. (If I get up while I'm still bleary, I do stupid things like trying to get back in bed, or sleep on the couch.) So what USED to work was turning my phone on and checking my email, Facebook, etc, for about 10-20 minutes, while I was still in bed. Now that it's dark when I wake up, I'll fall back asleep, with my phone still in my hand.

    I cooked mine for about half the suggested time to avoid drying them out. They still cooked through, but nice and moist.

    I FRICKIN HATE WAKIN UP WHEN IT'S DARK STILL. If I didn't share a room with ENFJ roommate I would totally hit snooze a billion times. I fell off the mindfulness bandwagon this weekend, need to get back on. But I just so busy! Which probably needs I need it even more. So much stress right now. So much.

    Food update:

    I've got a short week coming up, what with Thanksgiving being around the corner, so I don't plan on doing much grocery shopping at all. I have some more Thai meatballs and broccoli/spinach/kale in the freezer, and I have a big container of lentil soup in the freezer, that I made about a month ago. The plan is to live off of that until I leave on Wednesday.

    Also I made this banana bread the other day: Breadtopia | Moist Whole Wheat Banana Bread
    It lived up to the title -- definitely moist! -- and the wheat flour made it denser. Tasted less like banana bread and more like a banana nut muffin. Which I have no objection to.

    Exercise update:

    Okay -- exercise in the morning ain't gonna happen. New plan: going to the gym after work. It's more convenient to get there from work, than to get there from my house, and it could help keep me energized in the evenings. Similar to my difficulty getting up before sunrise, I've started wanting to go to bed at like 7:30pm, unless one of my roommates is around for me to talk to, in which case I can extrovert some energy out of them.

    Brought my gym clothes to work today, and am planning on going straight from there to an exercise class at my gym that starts at 6:30. Hoping this can turn into a routine!!
