What I ate for Dinner

When it came time for dinner I was craving veggies, big-time. I realized I had not yet eaten any today, so I whipped up the following in 17 minutes. Yes, I timed myself. Anybody can spare 17 minutes to make dinner. Heck, it's faster than take out!

I took a small, baked sweet potato and topped it with a scoop of low fat cottage cheese and a sprinkle of Mrs. Dash (I know, it's very 80s, but what can I say, I like Mrs. Dash on cottage cheese!) I sauteed onion, yellow pepper, zucchini, carrot, and kale in a touch of olive oil. I surrounded the potato with the sauteed veggies, topped with diced fresh tomato and finished it off with a drizzle of 25-year barrel aged balsamic vinegar (so good!) and a few grinds of sea salt and cracked pepper. 17 minutes, start of finish. Oh, and I had a glass of shiraz!

Here's a close up of my dinner. I swear there's a sweet potato under everything!

Now I'm full and very happy with my dinner. It hit the spot!

Hope you enjoyed my day of food. I have a new respect for food bloggers. It's a lot of work photographing every single thing you eat!

Didn't know you've been blogging! Good luck. It's a commitment. Your food looks yummy! I refuse to blog about my food I eat in Chicago though. What happens in Chicago...
