Tonight’s dinner was, hands down, the best thing I’ve eaten all day. So simple, yet so incredibly delicious and satisfying…and WOAH, talk about filling!
As soon as I got home from my afternoon shift, I got right to work on getting dinner ready. I was on my own, since Jay had to work late, so I knew I could have whatever the heck I wanted. Sometimes, I like having that option.
The first part of dinner included a fresh, veggie salad complete with romaine, cucumbers, tomatoes, baby carrots, onions, pickles, edamame, and a drizzle of Italian dressing.
The edamame (which I have in the freezer and just cooked up quick in the microwave and shelled) was a great addition. I’ve totally been missing out!
Along with my salad I cooked up a huge sweet potato (microwaved for 2 minutes, coated with spray butter, salt, and pepper, then cooked in the oven for about 20 minutes). I’ve recently seen a few of you out there top your sweet ‘taters with peanut butter and I’ve been slightly intrigued…so I went for it.
Ummm, okay…you folks are SMART. Looks like there’s two things I’ve been missing out on!
Totally lovin’ this combo…so much so that I wound up eating the entire thing, rather than saving half like I was originally planning (it may not look big, but I promise, it was a beast).
I really did not need the whole thing, and now my tummy is giving me a nice, constant little reminder of that…oh yeah, and Cody is totally judging me too.
Ahh well…at least it wasn’t something like cupcakes, right?
Either way, it was totally delish, and also a perfect meal idea for those of you who may like to partake in Meatless Monday too. Woop!
I’ve got lots to do tonight…got some things coming up…some ideas happening…some new stuff on the horizon…lots of excitement, indeed!
Question for the Evening:
Are there any particular foods that you have a hard time “holding back” on? (i.e., you plan to save half but, umm, whoooops.)
