I fell and hit the ice really hard today. Just after this picture was taken…
Since we had a warm-ish, lovely Sunday, we decided to hit the ice and go skating. All the preparations were done, we went to buy new skates for me, came home-argued whether we should or should not take our dog with us. Finally we went across the street to the pond! 15 minutes is all it took for me. I simply fell on my knee …I just could not believe how hard I hit the ice. I was crying like a baby; I couldn’t even pretend it was funny. Tom helped me to take my NEW SKATES off my feet and dragged me home. Icing Icing icing…I feel really helpless now. I can not really move and my bruised knee is “screaming” with pain..Hopefully I will be able to walk tomorrow and go to work.
I don’t like winter!
After I stopped biting my lips from the pain I started to plan our dinner with hope that Tom can do most of the work. I craved a rice bowl for a few days now- so here it is-(so simple your man can follow your directions when you are on the couch)
Recovery bowl to cheer me up.
I even gave him permission to take pictures today, and he did a pretty good job-don’t you think?
1 cup of cooked brown basmati rice
3-4 plum tomatoes
1 cup drained chickpea
1/2 cup chopped carrots (I added to the pot with rice when it was almost ready)
some red/orange chopped peppers
Feel free to add any veggies you have in your fridge.
1/2 cup (raw) tahini butter
1 garlic clove, minced
1Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1Tbsp lemon juice
a bit of filtered water
pepper to taste
Prepare your dressing in a food processor, simple mix all the ingredients together until smooth and add to your bowl. Stir it and OMG-Enjoy!!!
My knee is still “killing me” but at least my tummy is satisfied.
