Then around 2:30/3ish the most wonderful thing happened! I became ravenously hungry!!!! The worst part about being sick for a foodie is the utter lack of desire to eat. I am not sure I can express to you all how often I think about food, planning my next meal etc.. so to have zero appetite is just heart breaking!
My commute home was a bit insane. I spent the 30 minute commute mentally perusing my pantry & fridge trying to decide what to make. The options ran from turkey sandwich, to Greek lemon rice soup, Thai shrimp and Swedish meatballs. A good portion of the ride was also spent talking myself out of going to the market and I am so glad I did!
The winning dish ended up being Indian Lentils w/ Masala Sauce, Spinach and Basamati Rice. Nom nomm nommm!!! I love to get take-out from the local Indian Restaurant in my neighborhood Shanti and have wanted to try and cook more Indian recipes at home. So here we go......

It is looking like Boston is going to be hit by a Nor'easter tonight so look forward to Snow Day Part II and possibly "Black bean and sweet potato stew" recipe!
