Happy New Year to you and yours! I want to thank everyone for the well wishes for Tony. He is doing much better! He just needs to get rid of his nasty cough!
I tried a recipe from one of my new cookbooks last night and it was awesome. It was a very simple recipe, which is what I like. I made the Heavenly Hashbrowns from How it all Vegan. I wanted to make some kind of potatoes, but really wanted to try a recipe from one of my new cookbooks, since I haven't done so yet. So, I decided on this simple hashbrown recipe that consisted of onion, potatoes, mushrooms, bell pepper, dried dill, salt, pepper and olive oil. Let me tell ya....it was GOOD! I sauteed some asparagus in a little olive oil then sprinkled some herbamare on them (yummy), and cooked a can of organic three beans (kidney beans, pinto beans, and black beans).
For some reason the coloring of the photo turned out weird, but maybe you can tell a little bit about it. I went back to using my "old" camera instead of Tony's "new" one. I think I need to go back to using his. His camera takes a better quality picture.
We both need to eat more fruit, so I whipped up a simple fruit salad that consisted of: 1 banana, 1 pear, 1apple, and 2 oranges. I've been lacking on my fruit intake since winter time is here. There's just something about having to peel oranges that I just don't like. My sister gave us a box of fresh fruit for Christmas that is starting to go bad, so I decided to suck it up and peel a couple of oranges. :o) I made one big juicy mess too! It was worth it though, because it sure was nice to have some fresh fruit.
Do you have New Years resolutions or goals? I am working on mine. I'm trying to make realistic goals this year, so I will be more likely to stick with them. I am off work Monday, so I have a 3 day weekend....Yay! With that being said, I am going to take a few days off to enjoy the long weekend with my husband. When I come back, I will share with you some of my New Years goals. Maybe if I put them on my blog for you to see, I will have you guys to help me stick to them. :o)
