Oh, Sunday…

Standard

Here I am: 1:30 pm.  Buried under piles of lesson planning materials.  Fretting over administering state testing over the next several weeks.   Just the thought of reading hundreds of pages of training materials and manuals makes me heart beat fast–panic is setting in.  Not enough time to get done everything I need to get done.  Such is a teacher’s life.

On a more positive note…

Yesterday, the husband and I took a much needed break from responsibilities and went the KLCC Brewfest with friends.  The same friends also cooked us dinner:  a ridiculously good pizza, topped with ricotta, pear, broccoli, artichokes…

Pear?  Yes, pear.  It was phenomenal.  The beer at the event was phenomenal as well.  Highlights?  Block 15’s Love Potion Number 9 and Steelhead’s Barley Wine. Lowlights?  Just one:  Gilgamesh’s Mambo–tasted like tangerine perfume.

Trying to shake off the stress of work, and inspired by our friends’ company and the KLCC event last night, I think I will head into the kitchen and get to cooking.

Today’s menu:

Acorn Squash with Chili Lime Vinaigrette

Spicy Citrusy Black Beans

Pearl Couscous with Olives and Roasted Tomatoes
