Right before dinner, we had a nice man from the cable/internet company come by and fix the issue. We’re back in business, baby!
I felt bad that he came into a house that smelled like cocoa oatmeal cookies and bacon. Talk about mouth watering!
I offered him some cookies (I figured offering bacon would be weird, no?) and he said he was happy that we were his last stop and dinner was in his near future. Apparently the smells in our house had him craving a bacon burger!
Tonight’s dinner was a big salad topped with lots of crumbled bacon!
In the mix:
- Roasted potatoes (red, gold and purple)
- Sautéed polenta
- Goat cheese
- Pomegranate dressing
Salads for dinner aren’t usually my thing (they’re more of a lunchtime option for me most of the time), but occasionally a salad is all I want for dinner. Bonus points if it’s topped with lots of fun toppings.
The roasted potatoes and polenta gave this salad a rustic feel and a warmness that made it seem perfectly appropriate to eat on a chilly evening.
We initially planned to put up our Christmas tree tonight, but with the internet issues, our night was delayed a bit, so the tree will go up tomorrow. The peppermint hot chocolate, however, cannot wait one more day.
I’m craving a warm cup of that hot fire right now!
