another night alone

well.. my hockey billet ended up being gone last night to an away hockey game so I had the night to myself… and the dilemma began.. what to make myself for supper?

I thought I would just browse through that new cookbook I picked up and I found  a recipe for roasted vegetables.

Roasted Vegetables
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp soya sauce
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp fresh ginger
2 large carrots chopped
4 medium potatoes chopped
1 small onion chopped
fresh ground black pepper

Mix the olive oil, soya sauce, garlic and ginger in a bowl, add the chopped vegetables and mix until evenly coated. Pour into a baking dish and bake for 45 mins uncovered in a 425F oven. Stir once or twice.

Thats it so simple. Except I forgot about mine in the oven and burnt it around the edges and cooked  it all a bit too long. But it was still good. I ate it anyway..

What else did I do yesterday… nothing really played wii fit. I love my wii fit. I usually do a couple mini games and then I go into my personal trainer part and do the exercises for my hips and belly. I have been trying to stay up until 10 or so. I find I have a better sleep and don’t wake up as much during the night if I go to bed later.. the problem is just finding something to do to keep myself occupied. And there is absolutely nothing on tv these days.

I could have taken my tree down last night, but I think it looks so pretty up still I didn’t have the heart to take it down yet. Maybe this weekend I’ll take it down and get Dan to take the tree to his parents farm to throw it out. Dan comes back from the hockey games today. I guess Canada lost, I didn’t watch the game and I had to desire to either. I am so sick of hockey I can’t wait for it to be over!
