Roasted. Delicious.

I seriously love roasted vegetables. They are so easy, and take a meal from meh- to really delicious and satisfying.
I *especially* love roasted cauliflower and yams or sweet potatoes. So, tonight for dinner, I made a turkey breast, and some roasted cauliflower and yams, and a few yukon golds we had leftover.
On the cauliflower I put salt, pepper, olive oil and dill.
On the yams, chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, pepper, and olive oil.
On the yukon golds, salt, pepper, olive oil, and a little bit of garlic salt.

I roasted them at 400 degrees for about 35 minutes. Near the end of the time, the last 7 or so minutes, I kept decreasing the temperature by about 5 degrees every two or so minutes.

I had to bake the turkey breast in the toaster oven because it only cooks at 325 degrees. (Thanks mom and dad for the toaster oven!)

Here is a picture of my delicious dinner…

I have so much grading that I could do tonight, but I am on the fence as to whether I will actually do it. Hmmph.

Random stories from today:
*I burnt the roof of my mouth last night at dinner, so today, every thing I eat is excruciatingly painful.
*This morning I picked up my heated up curling iron by the barrel end.
*I finally called my insurance company back after they called me three times last week to enroll in a free program for women, but when I called I realized it was for pregnant women. Womp. Womp. Womp. I had to tell him I had a miscarriage. I was actually ok, but I felt really bad for the man I talked to on the phone. He was really sympathetic, and kind. He assured me that they wouldn’t call me back about that. And actually, directed me toward prenatal program that I could enroll in that was also free. As I am still in a place of hope, this was a small trip up in the course of my day. However, if it had been 6 months down the line and we are still not pregnant, it might have been a major setback. But, it wasn’t. And I am ok. I am hopeful.
*I took a nap after school. I need to stop doing that.
*I feel organized this week. This is good. I made a meal plan!!! YAY!!!!

Well, that’s all I got. I am off to read blogs in my google reader, and catch up on gossip and healthy people running and eating pumpkin.

Smooches,
Beth WA
