Ok, so I've made it through the emotional upheaval of last week and thought I'd need something to make me happy. Music is usually my artistic choice to uplift my spirits, but when I occasionally struggle with insomnia, I don't think S would be appreciative to the very loud vocal musings of Offspring at 3 a.m.
When that happens, I watch TV (old episodes of CHiPS......Erik Estrada...still yummy 30 years later), or I pop in a movie. The other night I stumbled across Dirty Dancing on a movie channel and settled in to watch Baby learn her moves. This movie originally came out in 1987....so if you are like me, you were around 12 when you first saw it....and had your first honest to goodness OH MY GOD LOOK AT THAT MAN MOVE HIS HIPS moment. I mean, here was a movie that me, my friends and our mothers were all swooning over. Patrick Swayze in my mind will forever be that guy that you want to dance with in your fantasies.
That being said, not sleeping = tired and not overly complicated recipes needed for supper. I am gearing up for a week off at work (best friend A is getting married...sniff sniff) so I'm working later hours than normal. A week off transcends into 70 hour weeks either side of your "vacation".
I had some frozen ground pork in the freezer so opted to make the Pork Kofta Pitas out of September's issue of Canadian Living. I didn't do the tomato salsa, but used up the leftover tzatziki in my fridge. I stuffed the pitas with English cucumbers, red onions and feta.....but you can't really tell from the pics.
These were more filling than we thought they would be......but love the flavours of paprika, cumin and dill together.
You can find the recipe HERE.
