Last-Minute Dinner

I’ve slept horribly for the past two nights. Monday evening I think I got about 3 1/2 hours of sleep. Last night I got about 5 hours. I’m fairly loopy right now, but exhausted. I thought about copping out on dinner, but I did that last night–Jay ended up ordering me some pizza. And since I had pork chops thawed, I figured I’d use those, along with some leftover rice from Sunday. I needed something else to go with it, though, and started looking around online for ideas. I didn’t get very far, until I remembered I had a bag of fresh green beans in the fridge. Even though it’s still hotter than Hell out, I decided I’d roast them, using a recipe I found on Skinnytaste.


They looked and smelled good enough while cooking. But I wasn’t thrilled with the taste. Usually I like green beans roasted, but these were a little bland.

I suppose I could’ve done as Gina suggested and sprinkled some crushed red pepper on them, but I wanted the bambino to eat some as well, so I left it off. Dessert was decent-enough:


Oh, Blue Bunny Super Chunky Cookie Dough…Why must you taste so good? At least I have weekly points now! And with that, I think I should go to bed. I need to get up tomorrow and get back to working out. I had another gain this week, and even though it wasn’t much, it was enough to tick me off. Good night!
