I’m very guilty of eating poorly at the end of the day. If I eat at all, it’s not usually something very healthy. Lunch is my main meal (man do I love me some lunch) so often I just don’t feel hungry. If I am, I’m too tired and lazy to do much cooking. Because of these things, I’m especially proud to have made up a fast, easy and healthy recipe that even my lazy ass is likely to make for dinner. The fact that there aren’t many dishes involved is a HUGE plus. Dishes are my least favorite thing, 2nd only to Steely Dan.
Happy healthy eating!
That’s it. I’m making it a 2012 goal to try recepies from a broader selection of chefs and bakers. Martha may have some amazing stuff out there, but I need to quit defaulting to her site so often or she’s going to start charging me some type of royalties. I get paid in satisfaction for doing this though, so I’ll just have to tell her how satified I am with her stuff.
Here’s another recipe that I made on NYE, sweet potato sage butter casserole. I wanted my side dish to be filling, different, tasty and hearty all at once. This really was all of those. I got to use my NEW FOOD PROCESSOR that I got for X-mas (I’m uh, a little excited) to make the fresh breadcrumbs, too. No more lugging my parent’s back and forth, they got me one of my very own.
This summer, my Mom has made several delicious salads that I’ve been able to enjoy. One of my favorites so far is her take on this macaroni salad recipe. There’s no cheese (usually blasphemy) like in many pasta salads, and although that doesn’t make this a healthy dish, it’s a really delicious one that is a wonderful counterpart with a hint of sweet to balance the salty and heavy main courses you’re making on the grill this season.
