A Roaring Good Evening

This evening has gone well! I felt super productive, the boys were so cheerful, Older Sis came for a visit and brought my nephews . . . superb! Older Sis and I usually see each other at least once a week but it's been pretty hectic since Nephew 2 came into the world. He's so darn cute. It is weird that I've had two babies but now that they are older, I almost forget what it's like to have a newborn. Older Sis also brought me a surprise: the lastest book of The Vampire Diaries series, The Return: Nightfall! I love my sisters!

While they were visiting, I had some Target's chickadees and flipped through my new Fitness magazine.

Once my sister and the nephews left, I threw a load of laundry in and started slicing and dicing in the kitchen. I came up with this mouthwateing creation, roasted veggie pizza.

My pizza consisted of:
  • butternut squash
  • parsnips
  • fresh spinach
  • mushrooms
  • broccoli
  • cheddar crumbles
To make this delish dish, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Then dice butternut squash and parsnips. Put in oven and roast for about 10 - 15 minutes. Add broc and 'shrooms, toss all veggies with a glug of oil and two glugs of soy sauce. Roast for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from oven. Lightly spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Top a Flat Out wrap with fresh spinach, a few cheddar crumbles, roasted veggies, and more cheddar crumbles. Crank oven up to broil. Broil pizza until cheese is nice and melty. Easy peasy! The roasted veggies will make an appearance at tomorrow's lunch.

Both boys got a bath so they are so fresh and so clean-clean. Check out this cuteness!

I'm going to have a few of NOO fat free fig cookies with a glass of almond milk for dessert. More chores to do and I'm jumping into bed!

Dessert is a must for this chickie! Do you have dessert every night or is it something you can live without?


  1. I have something sweet (or maybe a glass of wine) every night. Love my sweets!

    Those slippers are by far the cutest thing I have seen recently!

  2. i always have a sugar-free jello pudding as my sweet treat.

  3. I try not to have dessert every night but sometimes I just NEED something sweet.

  4. Must. Have. Dessert. Love those slippers!

  5. Love the little legs and the slippers! cute! :) and the pizza looks delish. I haven't had parsnips in years and I keep saying I gotta get me some!

  6. fig newman's are fantastic. those kid shoes are adorable too. very good retta!
