The Lowest of the Keys
When it comes to low-key birthdays, I think last night takes the cake!
First of all, there was no cake. Ryan and I returned home from teaching exhausted…not sure why I was so tired yesterday. I skipped my mid-day cup of coffee, which I’m sure has something to do with it. Also, around 5:00, the snow started falling…and it’s still coming down! By the time I got home from class, around 7, all I wanted to do was eat an easy, comforting dinner, watch The Office, and go to bed!
And so…that’s what we did!
We had a *very* plant-based meal…I guess something sunk in while we were watching Forks Over Knives!
We made roasted brussels, tossed with honey, balsamic vinegar, and course salt. We also made almond butter parsnip fries. Angela was the creator of this one, and, as with all of her amazing food concoctions, it rocks. Such a yummy flavor combo! It sounds like a strange one, but I promise, you have to try it!
Mmmm…these brussels were so good. The balsamic gets very sweet as they roast, with just a hint of tang leftover. Yum!
And after dinner, we did indeed watch The Office and go to bed. See—I told you! The lowest of low-key birthdays!
Today, I’m meeting a student at noon, and then we’re heading up to State College to see The King’s Speech—I’m very excited about this one!
Hope you have a great start to your weekend!
