I am getting way too into the Olympic Trials.
It’s so fun to see where all the athletes are from all around the United States and watch them perform. Plus, seeing how pumped they are when they make the Olympic team gives me goosebumps!
As I was cooking dinner today, I tuned into reruns of yesterday’s diving trials and loved watching former Orlando resident Brittany Viola kill it on the 10-meter platform. (She went to Lake Highland Prep before heading onto the University of Miami.)
Watching diving on TV is really fun for me because it brings me back to my high school diving days. The sad thing with diving is that it’s so, so hard to keep up with the sport if you’re not on a team because there aren’t that many pools with diving boards around anymore (even in Florida). Plus, I’d feel like a total tool practicing dives at a local pool. Even though I wasn’t a fantastic diver, I miss the sport a lot!
Back to dinner!
I frequently plan my meals around one ingredient. Today that ingredient was chickpeas!
I ended up making a delicious curry dish featuring the following:
- Chicken breasts
- Curry powder
- Dried ginger
- Garlic Gold oil
I started by sautéing the onion in the Garlic Gold oil before adding the rest of the ingredients and letting everything cook on a medium-low heat for a while.
The combination of flavors was fantastic! I wish I had a red pepper to throw in there, but it was still quite satisfying.
Question of the Evening
- Did you play a sport in high school? Do you keep up with it today?
