Oven Roasted VeggiesJanuary 29, 2009 at 2:33 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments
Nothing too crazy for dinner tonight. But it was my first time trying parsnips which i liked! And I always love roasted veggies.
I meant to take a picture of them in the pan but I forgot to. Ah well.
The parsnips were really good roasted. I liked that they were kind of mushy on the inside but the skin on the outside was still a little firm. And you can’t really go wrong with oven roasted sweet potatoes and zucchini.
When I got home from work I was STARVING so I had an appetizer of this:
That’s a Trader Joes Veggie Flax chip with black bean and corn salsa. These chips are awesome by the way…and dangerous because I can easily go through half a bag. We just bought a bag of Trader Joe’s Hemp chips..I’ll let you know how they measure up.
(Ignore the chipped nail polish…it has since been removed I promise…by the way that color is called “Breaking Curfew”. haha Nail polishes have crazy names)
Here’s the salsa:
My Aunt from Arizona sent my folks a basket of like 8 salsas for Christmas so James and I got to take one home. Let me tell you…this stuff is good. It’s really thick and has a deep, rich flavor. It was definitely a contrast to the tomato salsas we usually have.
I thought I’d show you James’ dinner too since I haven’t seen him like something as much as this in a while:
That is ground turkey mixed with leftover enchilada sauce with corn and TJ’s BBQ sauce on top.
I think his exact words after his first bites were “Holy hell this is good!” You know that’s a winner.
Score. Law & Order: SVU is on. Gotta go!
What’s the name of your favorite nail polish color?
