And I loved it. I was totally in the mood for a cozy, stay inside kind of day.
I made myself a fried egg and some rye toast when I first got up.
Later in the morning I got into my jar of granola from Erin and ate some with milk poured over, cereal style. Yum!
It was actually a productive rainy day for me. I decided it was about time I cleaned my closet, and since the coldest days of winter appear to be over, that meant putting all my heavy sweaters/clothing away. I decided to be really selective too and actually get rid of a bunch of stuff.
Later on I broke for lunch, which consisted of eggplant parm leftover from dinner with friends on Friday night, and a side of steamed broccoli.
After a brief lunch, I headed back up stairs and finished cleaning my closet. Much better...
I actually have FOUR huge trash bags of clothing that I weeded out to donate!
Later in the day the rain started to clear and I was finally stir crazy enough to want to get out of the house and go to yoga. I went to a nice hour long power class at OM.
I heard from Greg in the afternoon and he said he'd be home for dinnner! Yay! We weren't sure if he'd be home Sunday night or Monday morning, so I was happy to get an extra night with him.
I brain stormed dinner ideas and decided to make BBQ tempeh.
I used a cheese grater to shred my tempeh, then mixed it with about a cup of BBQ sauce and put it in the fridge to marinate.
Later, I sauteed some yellow/orange peppers with onion til soft, then mixed in my BBQ tempeh. Very easy.
I served it on a bun, with a side of vegetarian baked beans and steamed broccoli.
Good stuff! The BBQ tempeh was kind of like a sloppy joe. It was kind of impossible to keep the filling in the bun! Greg liked it a lot though. I usually make tempeh Asian style, so this was a nice change up.
Do you like tempeh? How do you usually cook it?
