Have you tried roasting your broccoli yet, like I told you to back in November? If not, what the heck are you waiting for? If you have (or if you need a stepping stone to get you there), I have a new way to roast your veggies! Garlic Roasted Carrots! Its so simple, and so delicious.
Carrots + Olive Oil + GARLIC! It’s amazing! In fact, Joel and I happened to steal quite a few pieces from Ladybug at dinner this night, and she was not happy to share! 🙂
I am so happy right now! We just heard from our landlord that someone really wants to live in our unit (we have one of the only three bedroom apartments that allows dogs in the whole city), so we get to move out a whole 2 months earlier than we were anticipating, without a penalty! Whooo!! Now don’t get me wrong, we like our apartment. It is beautiful, and we have fantastic neighbors. But it happens to be fairly expensive, and when all is said and done, its an apartment. And we neeeeeed a yard so bad! Not only for the dogs, who really need to run, but also for us! We are yard people. We like to be outdoors. We like to grill out. We need to run and play in grass. We need to grow something. And not having the option to just be outside for a bit kills us. So now we get to start looking for a new place to live! Unfortunately, this town is not renter friendly to dog owners, but I have no doubt that while finding a new place will be challenging, I can find a good place for us to live. Maybe I just need to take some brownies with me wherever I go… haha
