This week has been full of new and challenging events for me.
On Monday, I decided to go on a bike ride to celebrate the finish of my summer classes. Two minutes into the ride, my front tire hit a pipe hole that was left uncapped. As a result, I did a flip over the handlebars and got some nice road rash and bruises all up my body. My wrist also hurt a bit. But because I’m stubborn, I refused to go to the doctors.
Fast forward to later that night and I had a painful and swollen hand that I could barely move 😦
I gave in and went to the hospital the next night… and left with a bulky cast that I now have to sport for the next 6-10 weeks!
And just in time for vacation too.
Guess I can now say I’ve broken a bone!
So, this week I’ve realized just how much I rely on 2 functioning hands. Who knew opening a lid, buttoning pants, washing a dish, and packing a bag could be so difficult?
Making food has also become challenging for me. HOWEVER, with the help of my food processor, I was able to make this zucchini mash 🙂
I’m thinking simple recipes are going to become a theme for my blog for the next few weeks…
1/4 cup plain yogurt
salt and pepper
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp onion powder
1/2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
Place zucchini in a food processor and pulse until in small pieces (stop before it becomes mush!). Let sit for 5 minutes and then drain out excess water. Transfer 2 cups of zucchini to a pot and add yogurt and spices. Cook on low for 10 minutes, stirring every so often. Mix in mozzarella cheese before serving.
