Yes, that's right. I am beginning yet another post with an ode to some frozen bag of veg from TJ's. S looooooves carrots. I love carrots. We all love carrots. I have had this bag in the freezer for awhile and have seen some awesome carrot recipes lately- many of them calling for cumin. One of my top five favorite spices- well, top ten anyways (celery salt- how did I not know about you until now?). Along with some frozen fish and a can of chickpeas- dinner dunzo in about 25 minutes. Best of all, the pumpkinhead scarfed down her spicy fish and carrots like a champ.
Honestly- there is no need to post an actual recipe. I sprinkled cumin, paprika, salt and pepper quite liberally over the carrots and a can of rinsed and drained chickpeas on a sheet pan with EVOO and roasted at 500 degrees for about 25 minutes. I seasoned the fish just the same and cooked in a large saute pan over med-high heat, 3 or 4 min. per side. I drizzled just a bit of EVOO over the fish so the spices would stick, et voila! The fish I was using is super easy to cook, it comes skinless and boneless, and there is about 16 ounces total, certainly plenty for 2-3 people.
I've also discovered that my favorite Door County Tart Cherries can also be ordered online! OMG that is definitely going on the list of things to order. I have not been able to find dried unsweetened cherries that actually taste like something resembling a cherry. These cherries are a rare find- www.countryovens.com!
Having a grand old time swallowing five hundred vitamins a day, although I'm pleased to report no more burping clouds of cinnamon through my nose. HIIT is also super (not) fun and I like how efficient it is- I was in a rush this morning so squeezed my workout into 20min, how can you complain about that?! Last random thought of the night- have you heard of these?
Teeny tiny eensy weensy little cans of champagne! Or, sparkling white wine I suppose since it's from CA. OMG these things are freaking cute as hell! My cousin was serving them at her rehearsal din and I about died. They are so stinkin' cute. It's ridiculous. I could just be woefully behind the times, I don't get out much and certainly not to very many drinking establishments these days, but these things are just obscenely presh. If I ever have a party, with like, adults, again, I'm so serving these little babies. Alrighty then- that's it for me. G'night all- XoXoGFG
