All through choir I was mentally drafting recipes for dinner. I ran out of lettuce at lunch time so I had to come up something else! I ended up using the sweet potato my mom gave me from home. I peeled it, sliced it, and mixed it with
I set the oven at 350 and baked the pieces on this tray with tin foil for twenty minutes.
- drizzle of olive oil
- garlic powder
While the sweet potatoes cooked I made up a little recipe of my own! All I used was
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 1/4 cup chopped white onion
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup brown rice
- 1 cup sugar snap peas
While the rice cooked I put the peas in the steamer!
I added the vegetable broth to the rice, covered the pan and set the timer for 20 minutes.
After about 6-8 minutes (I lost track!) the peas turned bright green! I removed them from the steam and set them aside.
The rice ended up needing another 10 or 15 minutes before it was totally cooked. I chopped up the steamed peas and added them to the rice.
It came out really well! The sweet potatoes came out nice and soft and the rice had a lot of flavor. Woohoo!
I used the rest of the hummus from lunch for a little dipping action and a drank a little almond milk with dinner.
For dessert I had one mug of raisin bran crunch! One!Now I'm relaxing in front of the TV watching some of my favorite shows... you know, addiction and crime documentaries lol.
I'm going to bed early tonight! See you in the AM!
