Have you ever had a day where everything is great, then suddenly you get cramps and your day kinda goes downhill? Hormones right? Mood swings. Those times where your hormones make you just want to curl up in a ball and cry it all out, but the thing is, you have nothing to cry it out over. Literally nothing. You tried to find ways to be sad to just cry but your mind and body is like “girl, you are happy, stop trying to give in to your hormones, don’t let them get you down”.
So, since my mind is not allowing me to have a good cry out, I decided to download some more music onto my phone for my trip to visit my family in New Brunswick on Friday. Right now I’m listening to Whitesnake, Hurts so good by John Cougar is coming on, I’m singing along, and trying to spell correctly. Yeah, spelling can be hard when you’re singing a song it turns out.
This post isn’t making much sense, so I’m going to drink some tea and tell you all about my random ass dinner I made the other night. Also, I only have 30 pages of Sense and Sensibility left and I can’t decide what to read next. Jane Eyre? Death comes to Pemberley? or Pride and prejudice and zombies? You decide. I actually butchered spelling nearly every word in that sentence. Go me.
So the other night I could not for the life of me decide what to eat for dinner. Scott was going to have his leftover cheddar sausages, so I was making something for me.
I was trying to decide between maple beans on toast or sweet potato fries and veggies. (Jessie’s girl just came on, I’ll be back in a minute!)
Okay I’m back. You can’t not sing along to Jessie’s girl, amiright?
I spent hours trying to decide between the two, as I was craving both dinner options equally.
Eventually I decided to experiment in the kitchen.
I skinner my sweet potato (I like the skins, but find them hard to chew) and cut the potato in half. I oiled it up and covered it in salt, pepper, and rosemary and put it in the oven at 375 for an hour.
I ended up deciding to make the can of maple beans on the stove top (Heinz, obviously) to put over top of my sweet potato.
I really wasn’t sure how well this was going to taste. I like sweet, but not for dinner.
Once everything was cooked, I put my sweet potato on a plate and put half the can of beans over top. I gave Scott my other half can of beans because a whole can is actually a lot it turns out!
It looks a tad brown and unappealing, doesn’t it?
Well let me tell you, IT WAS DELICIOUS! AND SO FILLING! NEW DINNER STAPLE I’M THINKING!
Yeah, it needed all those caps, don’t hate.
Seriously, I did not expect this combination to go so well together, but I was seriously impressed.
This definitely will not be the last time I eat this, guaranteed.
Anyways, after blogging, listening to older music and tea drinking, I’m now feeling reading to finish my book!
Thanks for that 🙂
Do monthly hormones ever get you down?
