Laundry plates

You know on laundry-day how you have to wear your ugliest clothes, because all the clean ones are dirty?

These are my laundry plates.

I'm too cheap to run the dishwasher unless it's full, so all the pretty ones are dirty.

On that hideous looking plate is a bbq'ed chicken breast, alongside something pretty delicious.

It's a mixture of roasted butternut squash, steamed kale, sautéed red onion, dried cranberries, toasted walnuts, quinoa, EVOO, salt and pepper.

I dirtied a kazillion pots making it, but the flavour/texture combo was pretty excellent. The squash got a kinda mushy, which kind of held everything together and the walnuts added a great little crunchity-crunch.

Side note: now that I don't blog about food very often, writing about it kind of irritates me. But this combo was pretty good, so I thought I'd share - regardless of my crappy adjectives!

Um YUM. I haven't had butternut squash in probably a year, perhaps I will add it to my shopping list.

Enamelware, baking equipment kitchenware, and a dozen of household wares. Take a look at the range of products and you will be amazed to see the variety.

Try to make sure the washer and dryer are on the same floor as the bedroom. This makes putting clothes away a much easy and quicker chore.
