This afternoon, I had the bejesus scared outta me!!
Typically, Jay and I keep the door to our bedroom closed, in an attempt to keep any extra Cody fur out of the room. It helps a lot with my whole allergies & asthma situation.
Occasionally, however, we’ll open the door for a bit to let the fresh air circulate; and since today was a beautiful day, I had the windows opened and decided I’d let the airflow do its thing.
Well, as I was walking back into our bedroom with a hamper full of laundry, I happened to look down, only to see a sneaky set of eyes fixated on me…
I don’t know why it scared me so bad, but my goodness he is sneaky!
What a little CREEPER!
Tonight’s dinner was somewhat of a random assortment. I was really craving a nice, baked sweet potato, so I started with that and just went from there.
To get some greens, I actually heated up a box of frozen green beans & almonds. Sometimes, frozen, steam-fresh veggies are great! I had about 3/4 of the package.
Then I wanted some extra source of protein, so I decided to toast up another slice of my Nature’s Pride Hearty Wheat with Flax bread and topped it with some peanut butter.
And, of course, the star of tonight’s show! I can’t even tell you when the last time was that I had a baked sweet potato. 95% of the time, sweet potatoes are consumed as fries and that’s how I want ‘em.
But tonight’s sweet ‘tater totally hit the spot. I sprayed the outside with some butter spray, sprinkled some S&P, poked it with a fork a few times, and baked it in the oven at 350 degrees for one hour. It was so nice and soft that I didn’t even need a knife to cut through it!
Of course, the toppings didn’t hurt either. I generous dollop of nonfat Greek yogurt, a sprinkle of brown sugar and cinnamon, and a drizzle of maple syrup made this a potato to remember.
