I think I dabbled in all of the trends listed above, especially Beanie Babies. My mom, sister and I had more bean-stuffed animals than anyone in their right mind should own.
I am deathly afraid of needles (I don’t even have my ears pierced), and as a reward for not hyperventilating at a doctor’s appointment when I was younger, my mom would give me a Beanie Baby. I wish Beanie Babies still had the same calming effects on me!
My lunch today contained something that was once hot, but turned cold, kinda like a skip it.
Broccoli florets –>Tossed in olive oil + garlic salt –> Roasted at 400 degrees for 20 minutes –> Chilled in the fridge for four hours
Cold roasted veggies are the jam!
They add so much flavor to salads, sandwiches and side dishes.
Today I made myself a salad using the cold roasted broccoli as the base.
Into the mix went:
- Cold roasted broccoli
- Thawed frozen sweet corn
- Goat cheese
I planned to toss the salad in a light olive oil and balsamic dressing, but nixed that after realizing the broccoli and goat cheese made the salad extremely flavorful.
On the side I enjoyed a cup of Greek yogurt for some filling protein and a Sargento Colby-jack string cheese because string cheese = fun to eat.
