Ryan had to work late tonight and I was in the mood for a quick and easy dinner.
I made myself a chicken sandwich on whole wheat bread with roasted red pepper hummus.
On the side I had a big bowl of roasted broccoli and cauliflower that I tossed in olive oil and garlic salt before baking at 415 degrees for 20 minutes.
Roasting is my favorite way to prepare veggies. I think it really brings out the best flavor.
Frosting a Cake, The Simple Way
A week or so ago I read one heck of a neat tip in Real Simple magazine.
The tip was so simple, but so brilliant.
To frost a cake smoothly, and avoid getting crumbs in the frosting, allow the cake to cool and spread a light layer of frosting over one round cake. Place the other round cake on top and lightly frost. Then, stick the entire cake in the freezer for 15 minutes before adding another layer of frosting.
Naturally I had a small slice for dessert.
A couple of my coworkers and I are starting a new Foodie Friday tradition around the office.
Every Friday one person will make a special dish for everyone to enjoy.
I signed up for the first week and have a couple different ideas and would love for your opinion as to which recipe I should make!
Option Number One:
Option Number Two:
Option Number Three:
Option Number Four:
Which one should I make???
