Tonight I am not in the mood to be a big kid.
Last night was a long night and I’m pooped. One thing that I’ve learned about myself is that when I don’t get enough sleep (ie, 8 hours) I regress back to my 6 year old self. And tonight, owing to the fact that I only got about 5 hours (!!) of sleep I would like nothing more than a Yoo-Hoo and my ‘toons.
However, I did manage to put my big kid pants on long enough to make a delicious (and huge!) dinner for myself.
My inner child couldn’t decide what she wanted to eat, so the exasperated mother in me cooked pretty much everything that I had in the fridge.
I roasted some broccoli (an old favorite).
I snazzed them up with some Cajun seasoning and cayenne pepper (definitely not suitable for children- hot!!)
I also roasted some sweet potato slices.
They didn’t quite turn into chips, but that’s ok- I kinda like them mushy. 🙂
I grilled the last of the jalapeño chicken sausage and topped it with a little cheese. Why? Because one of my core beliefs in life is that everything is better with cheese. (Unless it’s a dessert. And then it’s always better with chocolate…and sometimes cheese.)
See what I mean?
The last part? Trader Joe’s organic baked beans topped with a drizzle of Trader Joe’s organic ketchup.
They were everything I remembered.
[insert contented sigh]
Now that my belly is full, I think it’s time to turn in for the night. I hear Curious George is on.
What do you make for dinner when you’re too tired to think about cooking?
