50 days couldn’t come sooner

Ok- we are almost there. Tomorrow marks 50 days until J comes home!

This may seem really silly, but it seems to be getting harder the closer we get to him moving back to our humble apartment. Luckily, he is visiting soon for a four-day weekend. But, still…all I am saying is after you see each other approximately everyday for 6 whole years, going without each other for 6 months is killer. People keep telling us “that’s not that long,” but it honestly feels like another 7 years that we have been apart…Anyway, enough moping. Here’s hoping the next 50 days fly by!


So, I have hit a point where I have a lot of random leftovers or random ingredients in my fridge. Today, I had a bag of frozen Brussel sprouts and a bag of whole carrots. What to do? Roast them.

On a foil lined cookie sheet, I tossed the sprouts and carrots (which I cut into 1/2 coins) in some olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Roast at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes. I flipped them every 10 minutes to make sure all sides got nice and toasty.

While that was roasting, I sautéed a smoked sausage in a frying pan, browning up the slices I put in the pan.


Plenty left for tomorrow’s dinner too!

Another crazy week here- hope all is well with our readers!
