The past few days, we’ve been experiencing a bit of an Indian summer here in PA. Unlike most people, I’m not complaining. I love the summer, prefer warm weather to cold (or even chilly!) weather, & would always rather be hot than cold! Also, in no time at all we’ll be buried under snow, so I plan on enjoying this little “heat wave” while it lasts. (By Saturday, the high is only 55*… brrr!)
No thank you!
Last night’s dinner was a little reminiscent of something I’d enjoying during the summer, although a meatball sub is perfect for the cooler months as well.
Every Tuesday & Thursday, I take the evening BodyPump class offered by my gym, & afterwards it’s a mad dash to get dinner together before I guzzle down an entire jar of Nutella.
Last night, as soon as I got home, I preheated the oven to 350*, & started warming some pasta sauce on the stove.
To make our meatball subs, I used frozen meatballs, which took about 25 minutes to cook up. As they were doing their thing, I popped a bag of Alexia frozen fries into the oven, & roasted up some cauliflower.
This was my first time roasting cauliflower! It’s not my favorite veggie, so I wanted to see if I could “spruce it up” enough to enjoy it! All I did was cut the veggie into florets, coat with olive oil, & sprinkle with pepper, garlic salt, & some thyme… simple & delicious.
As everything was cooking away (each component of the meal took about 25 minutes), I used the time to get some school work done; multi-tasking at its finest!
When dinner was ready, I was so excited to dig in! (My leftover stuffed pepper that I had for lunch did not hold me over very well.)
As soon as the meatballs came off the stove, I plopped them into a hoagie roll & topped them with some shredded mozzarella, which immediately melted into gooey deliciousness!
I was only able to eat 3 meatballs before I had to call it quits. Even Chris commented on how filling this meal was, so I know I did a good job!
One last thing, for your viewing pleasure…
What a little angel.
If you had to pick… Would you rather be hot or cold?
