Sorry for getting a little ranty/ravey on Monday. I don't know what got into me. Of course, after I complained about running, I went for a 3 mile run and it totally made me feel better. I actually did the same thing this morning because I went to see the Revenant last night.
That movie is insane. First of all, it's super intense. Like I was clenching my arms for pretty much the entire movie. Second, it was gross. I had to close my eyes pretty frequently so, actually, I don't think I saw most of the movie. And third, it was long. I felt like I just ran a marathon or something (well maybe not that long), but I felt drained after. So, I woke up this morning and I went for a run to make myself feel better and more upbeat.
It totally worked, I got to school today ready to take on the world! Then, one of my students gave me a super sweet valentine's day mug with some chocolate in it. Woo! This is good since I have to fly to Baltimore today for a teaching conference this weekend. I'm feeling much better and I'm super pumped.
I am also super pumped because we agreed on an offer with the seller of the condo we love! I'll keep you posted, but it looks like we will be able to close on April 1st and then move!! I can't wait!
And, to celebrate, here is a crazy delicious dinner idea. I saw one of those Tasty videos that circulate on facebook and it was for this cute little sushi thing. So, of course, I started to crave sushi, but sushi is not easy to make on your own. I decided to make a sort of "deconstructed" sushi. And, here it is! This is a perfect, easy dinner. Plus if you use gluten free soy sauce, it is totally gluten free!
Shrimp Sushi Bowl
1/4 cup cooked brown rice
4-5 cooked, cold shrimp
2 tbsp greek yogurt
1-2 tsp siracha
2 tbsp avocado, mashed up
1-2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
1. Cook brown rice according to directions, scoop 1/4 cup of the brown rice into a bowl.
2. Place the shrimp and avocado on top of the rice.
3. In a small bowl, mix the greek yogurt with the siracha and then place on top of the rice.
4. Drizzle soy sauce over everything.
