After a few nice hours reading, I got up to put dinner in the oven. And had a hunk of bread in the process 🙂
The husband walked in the door just in time to feed me a bite of this hot jalapeno cheesey bread he baked today 🙂 So delicious, but it didn’t go with dinner so I’m saving it for lunch tomorrow along with leftover chili!
Tonight’s dinner was a mix of favorites put together into a delicious bowl:
I baked some sweet potato and a cup of fresh cranberries in the oven at 375* for 30 minutes tossed in maple syrup, cooking spray and some kosher salt.
And tossed those with some simmered wheatberries (’bout half a cup), leftover shredded chicken (’bout 1/4 a cup) and walnuts (’bout 5 halves each) to make a warm salad –
The cranberries were superb roasted this way –
We also debuted the newest homebrew: Maple Brown Squirr-ale!! It is slightly undercarbonated, but the flavor is spot-on. We’ll be serving it to the family over Christmas 🙂 I had 1/3 of the bottle –
The conversation was flowing so I hopped up to get us another beer – this time the Dogfish Punkin Ale, which the husband thinks is the best pumpkin ale ever, but I still think Cottonwood (our local brewery’s) beats it hands down. I had 1/3 of this one as well.
And to top it all off, the hub brought home this surplus bag ‘o oatmeal raisin cookies! They are GIANT!!
I had 1/4 of one – smothered with some frozen/thawed ganache leftover from my birthday!
For some reason I’m awfully tired tonight, so I’m going to red in bed. But maybe just one more episode of Arrested Development first 🙂
