How colorful was your plate?

8 Nov

What’s your favorite day of the week? Mine is Thursday. So, today was a pretty fine day. Once again I had a billion packages at the post office. A billion=three in my world. One was for Maddox and the other two were for me. I have been playing the exchange game with Victoria’s Secret for a while now. I finally got the right leggings, so now I decided to send my bras back. I am turning into my grandma. She does the exact same thing. I think it’s her way of having to go shopping. So, I filled out my return slip and bagged it up. Opened up Maddox’s package and they sent the wrong stuff. Will I have to send this back too? Good grief. Wait! It gets better! The last package was my new winter coat. I had bought a new one last year and now I am swimming in it. Not a bad thing, just wasn’t expecting it. So now I ordered a Hydraulic coat from Burlington Coat Factory. I like it, but I don’t. It flares out at the waist and I look like a cupcake. Not the look I’m going for. Might have to send that back. I will see what Tyrell thinks when he gets home.

Let’s get to the good stuff. Food! It’s Vegan night at my house and I told you every Thursday I will post what I ate for dinner. So here we go!

I wanted to use up some beets so I decided to do a roasted root medley. I chopped up beets, a sweet potato, an onion, and a carrot. I then drizzled some olive oil and sprinkled some salt and pepper and mixed until the seasonings were distributed evenly.

These had to cook for about a half hour in a 450 degree oven. Tip: line your cookie sheet with tinfoil to save dishes. You know your veggies are done when you can poke through them nicely with a fork.

While these were roasting I steamed some green beans. I was planning on making green beans with garlic and diced tomatoes. Sounds interesting huh? I gave them a quick steam then I rinsed them in cold water to keep their bright green color and set aside.

Then I sauteed some onion in some olive oil. The recipe said to add three cloves of garlic, which means 6 to me. Then it was time to add my diced tomatoes. You can use canned, I did. I strained some of the juice out. I spiced this up to my liking (a ton of pepper), added the beans, heated up everything together, and done!

Doesn’t this look amazing and so colorful! I was a little nervous to try the green beans when I sat down to eat.
After my first bite I walked back to the kitchen, scooped up the rest that were left in the pot, and put them on my plate.
Then I mixed up everything. Are you a mixer upper? An enormous plate of colorful goodness was in front of me.What more could your body ask for?
