Happy How I Met Your Mother Day!
I think I was jinxed all day today:
- I got up late
- Roxy pooped in the house again
- I cut my finger when I was making my lunch
- I’ve had a headache all day
But it’s still been a pretty good day ;)
I had a slice of my pomegranate bread for a snack today. Work was really busy this afternoon and I was going to have another slice, but I got so tied in up things that I never got up again to get it!
As soon as I turned off my computer, I got working on dinner.
I had some leftover meatballs from this weekend and some veggies that needed to be used.
I cubed up an acorn squash and 1/2 an eggplant I had in the fridge, and roasted them with some olive oil, salt, garlic, and oregano at 450 for about 45 minutes.
While the squash and eggplant were roasting, I cooked some whole wheat pasta and heated up the leftover meatballs.
Once the pasta was cooked, I mixed it with the roasted veggies, meatballs, and a can of diced tomatoes and topped it with a little mozzarella. Baked at 350 for 15 minutes and it was ready!
I love the roasted eggplant with the squash! I’ve tried roasting eggplant before, and I’m not sure if it wasn’t at the right temperature before, but it turned out great this time.
I needed something sweet to end dinner with, so I just broke into these caramels from the Foodbuzz Festival.
These tasted just like carrot cake but still had that creamy caramel texture – and I loved the “icing” layer on top! Yum. A great way to end my day.
HIMYM is on – the highlight of my Mondays :)
Do you like caramels?
