Today was a good day at work. My seniors and I had a great class period- I mentioned before that we're doing a poetry unit and it was a fun day spent searching for poems that struck them, and then sharing and acting some of them out. My cheeks literally hurt from laughing and smiling so much. If you're curious about my daily going-ons, I usually tweet throughout the day, so if you aren't following me on Twitter, feel free to click here and do so!
On the way home from work today I stopped off at New Frontiers (our natural food store in town) and picked up some groceries. I decided to make an eggplant dish for dinner, and it turned out great. I didn't follow a recipe and kind of just went with the flow, so here are a couple of photos a quick, VERY easy made-up recipe you can try at home!
cheese (vegan or regular)
Put olive oil into a heated skillet.
Chop eggplant into rounds (thick or thin depending on your taste preference)
Add olive oil to a heated skillet and brown eggplant on both sides (I did this so it wouldn't get all mushy while it baked)
Once the eggplant is browned, place it into a dish with a little sauce for the base
Layer eggplant, sauce, and cheese (ending with cheese on top)
Bake in the oven at 350 until the cheese is melted
Serve with whole wheat pasta!
heading into the oven...
After dinner Hank and I spent some time together. We hung out until he left to watch the Suns game with the guys, and I did some working out. Now I'm currently enjoying one of my most favorite television shows/guilty pleasures, The Bachelor! I've watched this show for years and every year I love it more. I know it's super cheesy and probably really fake...but I love it all the same.
Some photos from today-
I feel like Madeline saying "HEY GIRL!" here. She looks kind of scary but it makes me laugh!
lazy us, hanging hard on the couch! I love her.
I hope all of you had a really great day! As far as this week on Sometimes Sweet, look for another recipe post, a healthy treat recipe, a playlist, a book recommendation post (as per request), a blogger feature, and daily run downs and photos. I also have an awesome giveaway in the works so stay tuned for that! I've already received a lot of great questions for next week's Formspring feature, so feel free to ask me anything over there, or as always you can leave a comment.
So again, happy Monday! What goals are you working on for the week?
