Last night for dinner the husband grilled steaks and I made the sides. That's just what we do. I always handle the sides and he always handles the main dish.
I steamed 1lb of green beans and then tossed them with minced garlic, a touch of olive oil, and lots of salt. They were perfect! Why don't I do that more often? For the potatoes I sliced big russet potatoes about 1/2in thick (I left the skin on) and then rubbed them with herbs and olive oil. I found the herb combo here. I roasted them for 40 minutes at 425 flipping them half way. I also sprinkled them with parmesan cheese about 5 minutes before they were done. They were perfect for the steak juice.
I woke up this morning and did the usual Monday. Took squirrelly to school, drank a protein shake on the way to the gym, and did 45 minutes on the elliptical.
I had a perfect pear after the gym.
Sprinkled with cinnamon. Cinnamon and pear are one of those flavor combinations that just go together. Like peanut butter and jelly.
For lunch I made low and slow sweet potatoes. I've been reading KERF for a long time and this is one of those recipes I remember her doing. This method of cooking sweet potatoes is perfect. You really do get a pillowy soft potato with a crispy crust.
Cut the sweet potato into about half inch thick slices. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
@350*- 30 minutes flipping halfway through
@400*- 20 minutes flipping halfway through
I topped mine with leftover baked beans, 2% cheddar, and greek yogurt. While I was making this the husband said it was weird and come to think of it the ingredients do seem a little weird. It really is good though!
