Despite the constant distractions from the pug, I managed to have a very productive morning.
Remember my Workaholic Pug post? Well, I killed Murphy’s working mojo by moving my “office” to the living room coffee table and sitting on the floor to work. He was not a fan of the change.
And made it well known to me.
Actually, I think he was just trying to get comfortable.
Ok, maybe he was a bit upset.
Eventually, Murphy settled down and fell asleep (with his bear) next to my head.
A couple of hours later, this is where he parked his pug butt. Little bugger.
It’s never too early to start thinking about Thanksgiving, right? 😉 Well, Electrolux and Foodbuzz invited Featured Publishers to create a Thanksgiving side dish for a chance to win airfare and accommodations for the 2010 Foodbuzz Blogger Festival. I would very much like to win this prize, so here’s my recipe!
Roasted Apples with Red Onion & Thyme
As you know, I love easy recipes, so I kept my Thanksgiving side dish simple by using just three ingredients. Well, technically, I used six, but you probably already have the other three in your kitchen! 😉
- 1 apple, diced (I used Gala, but any red apple would work)
- 1/2 of a medium red onion, diced
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 4-5 sprigs of fresh thyme
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Preheat over to 400*F.
- In a mixing bowl, toss apple, red onion, and thyme springs with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
- Transfer ingredients to a baking sheet.
- Roast for 10 minutes and then toss ingredients on pan. Roast for another 10 minutes until tender and then remove from oven.
- Serve as a side dish.
Yummmm! This recipe is a keeper!
I love the combination of sweet and savory. Plus, I just love roasted veggies… and fruit! 😉
So, there might be another change for Carrots ‘N’ Cake. I’ve gotten back to my roots with blogging, but before I change anything else, I’d like to hear your feedback.
I’m thinking about not blogging about every meal and snack that I eat. I’ll still blog 2-3 times a day with plenty of food in the mix, but I won’t document every single thing that I eat– mostly because my meals and snacks aren’t always that exciting. Plus, I’d rather blog about other things, like our new house. (Whaaatttt!?!?) I haven’t decided one way or the other, so feel free to weigh in.
Mal and I are seeing The Social Network tonight, and I am SO EXCITED!
