Last night was full of Snowquester prep.
I grabbed a bottle of wine on the way home.
My wonderful boyfriend stopped by World Market when I notified him of their buy one, get one free deal on Twinings tea.
We lit the candles in case the power went out.
I gathered all of my library books to prepare for a day of reading.
And I made magical tomatoes.
Yep. The week of Olive Garden continues :)
These tomatoes are seriously amazing. They are roasted in the oven with a little olive oil, salt and brown sugar and they make everything better (which is why they are magical).
You can put them on a plain chicken breast, mix them in with quinoa for a side or do as we did and use them to top off some pasta.
Magical Roasted Tomatoes
- 2 cups tomatoes, halved (quartered if using larger than cherry/ grape)
- 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 325F
- Spread tomatoes on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil
- Sprinkle salt and then brown sugar over the tomatoes and stir around
- Roast tomatoes for 35 minutes, giving a stir halfway through
I love when a simple preparation has such a flavorful result!
At 4 AM the Office of Personal Management announced that the federal government would be closed today (which means everything in DC is shut down). Obviously I woke up at 4:04 AM and checked Twitter because I'm 10 years old.
Yesterday I informed Brian that if we had a snow day we would be eating pancakes for breakfast.
The snow is JUST starting to come down now. We'll go out for a walk later and get some better pictures.
