Three Woofs For the Weekend

in All Posts

YA! It’s the weekend!

James is excited.

No really, he is.  :)

 

My car is back from the shop (I was in an accident last Thursday).  It’s as good as new now – AND I finalllly get to put my Marathon sticker on!

All, down to business:

 

Afternoon snacks included 1/2 a melon and Honey Nut Cheerios.

And dinner was 1.5 cups of brown rice with a little Alfredo sauce mixed in, with a side of roasted mushrooms, broccoli, parsnip, potatoes, and carrots.

I am happy to say that I think I have learned to LIKE veggies.  It’s all about finding a method (like roasting with EVOO and pepper) and a variety of good veggies.  I LOVE Potatoes. :)

Well kids… tonight I am going bowling.  And drinking beer(s).  Maybe snagging a few French fries.  :)   I bet I break 100 this time!

 

Hope you’re having a nice night, too.  :)

    It took me the longest time to figure out what was going on near James’ tail… I thought Maggie’s ear was an extra tail of his or something, haha.

    Have fun bowling!

    When it comes to veggies (and liking them!) you have to make them interesting like you did tonight.

    Have fun bowling.

    I really could not live without veggies any which way, but roasting is like the king of preparation. You could probably roast a shoe and it’d be good

    I was just thinking who is Caitlin….the Caitlin we’ve read hates veggies. But you are right it is all about the method of prep. Roasting imparts so much flavor :-)

    I’m on a quest to learn to LOVE veggies! I thought I did, but upon starting my blog, I realized my diet had hardly ANY! Time to amp it up! Your veggie-filled dinner looks amazing!

    Have fun bowling, and your dinner sounds great! Having a great way to prepare them and add tons of flavor is KEY! You can’t eat steamed veggies forever and actually enjoy them.

    And this sounds pretty lame but I totally just now realized what 26.2 means.. wow.. I see them on cars all of the time and i’ve always wondered. Gee.. blonde moment..

    That’s awesome! I’m just entering the world of ‘roasting veggies’ because they’re delicious. If you’re a parsnip fan, try roasting parsnips and carrots (chopped to the same size) with evoo, garlic powder, salt and pepper in the oven for about 30-40ish minutes @ 400 degrees.

    It’s yummy!

    Also, have a great time bowling…it’s always fun with a few beers :)

    I love roasted vegetables. I’ve been buying Brussels sprouts and roasting them with potatoes and sweet potatoes for dinner every night. Drizzel a little olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, basil, hot pepper, thyme and rosemary. It sounds like a lot of spices but they really help the flavor. Sooo good!

    I think I’ve always liked veggies… I just liked other things more most of the time LOL. Your roasted veggies look sooo good! They taste best that way, IMO.

    Your dog is SO BEAUTIFUL! I want one, but not as long as I’m still living in an apartment… cause it’s gonna be a Big dog ;-)and on a side note, I feel that parsnip is often overlooked, but it’s so flavorful!

    Glad that your car is back, 26.2 sticker and all!

    Roasted veggies are the best kind! My mom always boiled them…not nearly as appetizing (except artichokes). I wonder how roasted artichokes would be…hmm. Very glad that you have developed a taste for vegetables, though-there are so many! :)
