Sunday evening and time to wind down

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

So here we are at the end of another busy week (I count my week Monday - Sunday.) While my husband is at a board meeting for the San Francisco City Chorus, I've finished my weekly recap and planning for the upcoming week and am checking in on Active Rain. In a few minutes I'll try a new recipe for us to enjoy as a late dinner tonight when he gets home.

I'll be modifying the recipe for Spicy Sesame Zoodles with Crispy Tofu which my daughter shared with me from @pinchofyum on Instagram. Being basically lazy, or too busy, I purchased low-sugar Thai peanut sauce which I'll use instead of making the sauce from scratch; I can always toss in some chili pods if I need to spice it up a bit. For sides, I plan to saute two different mushrooms, maitake and morel (Maitake is considered a medicinal mushroom and is classified as an adaptogen. An adaptogen helps the body resist all forms of stress, either mental or physical and has a normalizing function on the body. Morels I rarely eat--they are very elusive) for a taste test, and some fresh chard picked this afternoon from our garden plot at Fort Mason Community Garden.

A relaxed, late dinner and an early night will refresh and recharge me. I'll be ready for some early morning yoga, then to the gym and a walk in the Presidio before breakfast. Welcome Monday!

How do you relax on a Sunday evening and get ready for the week to come? Wishing you all a good one.

Lottie Kendall - I have a feeling there's always something good stirring up in your kitchen! I love how you are always trying to beat expectations and achieve great results in everything you do, even cooking!

Actually, most of the good aromas coming from my kitchen would be my husband's doing. He has more time, so cooks more than I do. I enjoy trying new recipies,  Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  and then modifying them, but only when I have time. How about you? Is cooking something you enjoy?

Lottie Kendall - When I stayed home with my kids, I loved my kitchen. It was my classroom always teaching them sounds, words, texture, smells, etc. I would make up educational games and they participated in everything from helping me to blend, mix, measure, set the table, clean-up, etc. 

I don't have anyone to cook for anymore and no time to entertain guests. I don't enjoy doing it just for me and live a simpler life now. Plus, on average, I only eat once a day. However, if I was in your shoes, I would be more excited... if there was someone to share it with.

You should post your revised recipe in a blog. It sure looks good.

Hi Lottie,  I'm interested to know how the morel mushrooms taste.  I've heard about them but never tried them.  Anxious too, though.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - I hear you; cooking for one is a chore; perhaps one day, when the time is right, you and a few friends will have a supper club. Could happen!

Hi Ricki Eichler McCallum - the morels had a nice, woodsy taste as one might expect. However, I didn't succeed in getting all the grit out of the many crevices, so they weren't my favorite. Maitake I do like--a lot.

thanks Lottie, for letting me know.  I will still try them but really try to clean them well.  They also look very different, interesting.  They grow in my neck of the woods.  I just haven't tried them yet.

Lottie-that dish looks so good!!!   We ended up having my brother and his wife over for an impromptu dinner of broccoli cheddar soup made in our Vitamix, a fresh salad and homemade bread.

Hello Lottie,  Love the mushrooms in lots of my recipes.  The picture makes me wanting to make it soon.

Yes, do wash them extremely well; perhaps the one I had was grown in a sandy soil, Ricki Eichler McCallum

Your dinner sounds delicious, Kathy Streib - impromtu dinners often are the best, and bring out the creativity in us.

Lottie, my goodness, this all sounds so divine! How did it turn out? I'm a vegetarian and this would be up my alley. Never heard of the Maitake mushroom before. Wow! And we grow other mushrooms here (which I can't think of right now), so I'm all about local fare. 

Such a great and fun post!

Happy Saturday, Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Real Estate - see if you can find maitake mushrooms--we think they are very tasty, and are real power houses for good health -- a win win! (PS: the dish turned out great; I'll try red lentil fusilla instead of Zoodles some time for a different texture, but the Zoodles were tasty.)

 Your recipe looks delicious and my mouth is been watering ever since I started reading it. I should never read blog posts about food before lunch. Thank you for sharing, Lottie Kendall

It was pretty tasty, Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS  -- I've read recipies before breakfast and was ready to gobble down tacos, chilli, etc!

Lottie Kendall - I like your idea for a supper club but to simplify things, why not a meet-up with other AR agents somewhere at a B&B in their dining room and let someone else do the cooking while we each have our own individual luxurious rooms for the night! Of course, I have a feeling we would all stay up late talking, but wouldn't that be fun!

Oh Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - I think you should develop your idea of an AR meet up at a B&B - talking into the wee hours of the morning sounds grand!
