Boy, Matt and I are both worn out.
He spent all day putting together this oven.
And my shoulders ache from sitting at the computer all day. I feel like I made a tiny chip in a wooden block the size of my house!
Brain food came in the form of 2 of my FANNEtastic Oat Puff balls – they were delicious!!
Despite being pooped, we managed another nutritious dinner, cooked in 10 minutes. We are super low on groceries too, so it was quite the accomplishment!
Grilled Sausage over Pilaf with Beer-Braised Greens
We grilled our leftover sausages in 5 minutes.
On the side, I heated up leftover brown rice with a handful of cooked wheatberries (I’m finding how convenient it is to have cooked grains on hand during these busy times!) with a few tbsp of Tribal Moose Cranberry BBQ Sauce, ‘bout a half cup of frozen corn and cilantro. The pilaf was great!!
I picked up a big bag of mixed “braising greens” at the farmer’s market and we steamed them in 1 cup of homemade smoked brown ale until they were tender and then removed them and cooked down the sauce with a drizzle of honey and a pinch of salt until it reduced by half.
Our nice dinner got moved inside due to a massive thunderstorm.
I had plans for a lovely evening walk with my audiobook and it turned out to be a wash. Literally. No daylight or dry skies to walk under 🙁 Boo to rain on my book parade. When I listen to my book in bed I just dose off! Zzzzzzzzz.
Enjoying a taste of dark chocolate as a night cap!
