6 large carrots

salt and pepper
Cut carrots into strips. Mix together all of the other ingredients in a bowl. Add the mixture to the carrots.Toss gently to coat evenly.Spread evenly on a baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, bake for about 15 minutes, then turn, baking for another 10-15 minutes or until crispy.My plate with the shredded BBQ Chicken.
These tasted a lot like sweet potato fries, but not as sweet. I really liked them. Carrots are always available, and these make a nice vegetable side alternative.
I saw the advertisement for the new season of Project Runway Season 16 last night to begin this week. The show is a definite indulgence for me (and drives David crazy as he doesn’t like it).
I usually love this show just on the basic fashion and sewing competition. This season however, excites me even more due to the fact that they will be using models in a range of sizes – from a size 2 to a 22!!!!! LOVE THIS.
Even though I have lost weight, I love seeing opportunities for larger women to feel confident in their clothes– joy. So many clothing companies (in my past) made me feel like I should always wear black, and my arms are four feet long. More exposure on all types of media to showcase women in all sizes is for the better I think.
What are your television indulgences? Food? Housewives (ugh)?
I really have never been a big fan of smores. Too messy, have to build a fire. And today is National Smore’s Day…and I don’t want to build a fire…
Love this yogurt! This flavor has become my favorite.
So apparently today is National Junk Food Day…and since surgery I definitely have some cravings that are not good for me or my sleeve.
Crunchy Cheetos. Butterfinger Bites.
Both of these are evil for me to have around, but having a bite or two is okay just not everyday. Today is a day for treats.
Another one of my indulgences are magazines. I love them. I used to subscribe to many of them, now I just pick up one or two when I am at the store.
I keep them in a basket by my chair, and will read them and then reread them.
I love them. I used to get them on my tablet. It really isn’t the same as flipping through the pages.
