when tryptophan attacks

i went to bed at 10:30pm last night...and only just got up now (9:57am). meaning, i inadvertently missed my first class! ah well...i'm semi-stressing because the class i missed has a 30% midterm next week, but i've allowed myself one missed class per course. and, i only have to get a B to get a degree. so hopefully, i can do it!

i couldn't wake up to save my life. after thanksgiving on saturday, i was fine. after part two on sunday, i was fine. but i think eating turkey and the accoutrements in leftover form last night finally did me in. i was done for! plus, i'm still feeling the effects from the car-bike accident i was in the other day...my head feels a little googly.

tonight for dinner i'm nixing turkey and anything turkey related...and trying to get my diet back on track. we're eating a chickpea korma, that i currently have bubbling away in the slow cooker. i saute a crapload of onions, until they're starting to break down and turn a dark brown, then add garlic and ginger, a couple of split chiles, then a bunch of whole and ground spices (caradmom, cumin, coriander, tumeric, black pepper, fennel seeds, cinnamon, cloves and salt), and some drained, canned diced tomatoes. when i come home tonight, i'm going to finish it with some sour cream and eat it with coconut almond lime rice. and i might grab some sag from the pakistani take-out place up the street so we have some greenery in there.

no dessert! a fruit smoothie for me instead.
