Cook 'n' Stuff

I guess I was pretty productive today. Started my day doing laundry and while I was waiting for it I got some studying in and I did do the dishes that had been piling

As a break from studying (after the laundry was done), I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond to find a neck massager because I woke up with the stiffest neck! I ended up getting a shiatsu massage pillow. I do not like the feeling of vibrations, so this was perfect because it kneads your muscles instead. I also ended up getting my birthday gift for my friend, Leslie there as well.

I then went to Trader Joe's to pick up some food so that I could prepare it for the week. I decided to make a beef stew using my crock pot. I just threw in stew meat, a mix of onions, celery and carrots, and also an array of colored potatoes. I added some spaghetti sauce and some water and viola! Crock pot cooking is so easy! I wanted to make some chicken as well, so I cooked up some sun-dried tomato and basil chicken using my grill pan. It is delicious, because I was craving meat so I had some before I made my salad.
I made a beet and fat free feta cheese salad. I got the inspiration from Sammy's Woodfired Pizza and I make it on occasion. I just chopped some beets and added some feta. You could also add some italian dressing, but I had it plain. The beets kind of reminded me of my mom. She really liked beets.

It really hit the spot and motivated me for another couple hours of studying!
