Wow. The holiday season is winding down, now. I sincerely hope that you all had a wonderful holiday! What are everyone’s New Years Resolutions? I know I’m going to have quite a few, I will let you all know what they are when I can actually sit down and write them out 😉
This morning I am on my way to the airport, so I am going to make chocolate peanut butter cup oatmeal and call it a day:
This is a previous photo, but I’m fairly certain it would look the same 🙂
Yesterday I was still on my carrot kick, and craved veggies. Yay! I never thought I would get to that point. My wonderful husband got me a convection oven for Christmas, so I was able to make all the broiled veggies I wanted in short order 😉
First, my new convection oven, it’s a Breville:
And the carrots that went into the oven:
And then there was some eggplant:
And then eating:
Roasted carrots and eggplant, a lovely salad with goat cheese and raisins and Goddess dressing, Sabra Hummus, and organic pita chips. YUMMY!!!
We were going to a friends house (where I freaked them out by pulling out my camera and taking pictures of the food, LOL!) But they didn’t care, really. There was a wonderful BBQ pork butt done on our friends Big Green Egg,
And my plate (where I went back for seconds :))
I brought the salad. I ate lots of everything! Corn, pasta with dressing, feta, peppers and olives, salad. For dessert there was no-bake cookies, where I ate like, 5! I don’t know what’s come over me lately. They were very tasty! I wish I had a picture, but I was too busy stuffing my face.
Other things I did today: I opened an avocado (actually 2, the first one was yucky):
The second one was better and de-pitted, then refridgerated with lemon juice to hinder browning:
I brought chips and salsa to our friend’s house:
No, I did not eat the whole bowl of chips. 🙂 I had probably 2 handfuls, but no salsa since tomatoes are on my sensitivity list.
And there were pictures of the veggies I put in the salad, not because they’re something special, but because my wonderful husband also got me a new cutting board and knife to chop them up by 🙂
Just some little things that will make my cooking easier, because we all know I just don’t like to cook!
Have a wonderful day!
