I hope you are having more fun, now that weekend is here for many.
It’s the reverse for me because this weekend is gonna be all about chores. I hate chores so much, it’s loathing.
And I am hoping, it’s not only me? The worst is doing laundry and emptying the dishwasher.
Some days, I am super productive. You won’t find me sitting around aimlessly, doing nothing. But there are days where I almost wish to curl up in a ball and just watch reruns of my favorite sitcom.
It’s a sitcom about 6 people, paleontology, fashion & more. Can you guess?
I think I gave away too many tips. Huh, generosity fails me all the time.
So in order to fullfil the “curling into a ball” requirement, rustling up simple & comforting foods is almost a necessity.
Take this soup for an example. Throw in some chopped broccoflower and whole head of garlic to roast in the oven.
Watch an episode of your favorite tv show.
Hit pause, get your booty into the kitchen and finish preparing this soup.
Throw a few slices of whole wheat bread in the toaster, whirl up soup into a blender, sprinkle on necessary spices and lunch is served!
Now, the only excuse NOT to make a simple lunch like this has only one explanation — lazyness. Or the need for a maid.
Well, I’d love to believe we all need a maid in our lives. Half of the time spent is cleaning the kitchen.
Before, during and after.
My hands are begging for serious attention.

For tempering spices:
- In a small nonstick pan, heat remaining coconut oil on medium low. Add mustard seed and allow to sputter for a minute.
- Remove pan from heat, add coriander, cumin and chili powder.
Off to continue sulking as the weekend is looming and the chances of escaping chores seems nearly impossible now
