We are learning how we can get lazy this week. And hey, that is a OK!
Because, serious question, my fellow lads and lassies. Have any of you made tamales before? I have. And they are delicious, but damn they are SO hard to make. The day that I made them, I remember spending hours wrapping the cornmeal with the corn husks and tying them together and steaming them. Yeah, that is a lot more work than I normally want to do in these cases. And honestly, the guacamole and the pico I made were winners compared to the corn tamales that took me hours to make.
So here we are, on a mission to be more lazy.

Look what I made us today!
It is my new favorite quick and easy, cozy-ish summertime dinner. I know, I know. You were probably thinking that I was going to make some sort of salad or something, what with it being summer and healthy and all.

Let’s get out of our comfort zone. By getting into our comfort zone.
I have grown up eating Indian food for most of my life. It is pretty much my favorite thing to eat (Spicy Sarah was my nickname in high school). My dad always loved taking me to the Indian buffet for lunch in our town, when pre-vegetarian me would load up on totally authentic butter chicken (blessed be he). Even though I am vegetarian, making my own indian food (and even gobbling up Trader Joe’s Chana Masala) makes for some of my favorite meals. And for me, nothing scream comfort quite like a big old warm bowl of dahl or curry chocked full of chickpeas or lentils.
I swear I have curry powder running through my veins. My yellow tinged veins.

I mean, I can’t even with this season at the moment
It was not until today that it hit me: CHRISTMAS IS IN TWO WEEKS PEOPLE. That is so so soon. I’m kind of one of those people that the holiday season doesn’t hit me until it’s too late. I usually like to plan ahead with everything, but, especially with gifts, I always find that Christmas sneaks up on me until BOO, there it is.
And there I go again mixing up my holidays. Seriously wasn’t Halloween a week ago.
