Having had a late night on 30th (but a fantastic one, catching up with most of my old group from school and laughing till we cried for hours on end), during which I may also have drunk way more wine than is good for you, I flew back home yesterday evening and more or less collapsed into bed. Stopping only to let the friends who had invited me to their new year's eve celebration know that I wasn't going to make it.
I've had a very easy day today as well, reading and catching up on sleep whenver I felt my eyes closing. About an hour ago I started thinking about food and what to cook for dinner. There are frozen chips in the freezer but I kind of wanted to eat something healthy after all the indulgence over the holidays. So I thought of the curry paste I also have in the freezer and thought maybe with a tin of chickpeas, that would do the trick. I was still thinking it'd be a bit bland though, with no vegetable or meat component. And then I looked in the freezer (actually, I had gone as far as opening the freezer to get out the chips after all) and remembered I had two small containers of cabbage. Sorted. Then I remember there was also a bag of green beans in there. Even better. And then my eye caught on the two sweet potatoes that have been languishing in my kitchen since some time in October. And so a curry is born.
Year in Books 2015 is still to come. And I never posted about my Sealed Pot opening either. I'm half thinking of trying to post every day in January so might see how that goes. For now, I wish you all a very happy, peaceful and joyous new year, something I'm planning on doing my best to have for myself as well.
