One of my very favorite meals.........

Roasted Chicken breast, made with tons of spices and garlic and onions. Cooked til it falls off the bone. Incredibly moist and incredibly tasty.
Massive quantities of roasted string beans, brussel sprouts and asparagus, also with garlic and onions.

Thanks for the recipe, Lyn. It sounds yummy! I will probably make it this weekend.

Tonight I am making something similar to RockinRobin's meal. Not brussel sprouts though. I never could get in to them. I love asparagus and green beans though. I eat them almost every night!

Mom and I went to Bob Evans. I got their lite (senior) breakfast: turkey sausage, egg beaters, sliced tomato, fruit cup and dry wheat toast. Very tasty and less than 400 calories.

Just wondering. Have you ever tried brussel sprouts - roasted? They're a whole other ball game.

No...I haven't. I have tried them boiled and my friend made them one time for me. I think she sauteed them. All frozen ...I am pretty sure. I pretty much really like all vegetables except those and lima beans.

Do you roast fresh or frozen and how?? I might be willing to give them another chance...

I had some more of that cabbage soup tonight with 3oz ground turkey breast browned and added to the soup. Very good. I also roasted some fresh organic kale. It was SO GOOD. Crispy and salty, mmm.

And I second the roasted brussel sprouts, they are fantastic. I always look those up on allrecipes too.

I roast them fresh. I cut off the little tip, then I slice them in 1/2. I par boil them first. Saves time. I put them in a pot with a bit of water and boil them for about 5 - 7 minutes or so.

Then I place them on a baking sheet which has been sprayed with cooking spray. I sprinkle them with sea salt and lots of fresh chopped garlic and onions and spray them with more cooking spray. I roast for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees, turning a few times, til nice and browned.

I am going to make salmon, not totally sure what the best way to cook it is going to be. I am serving it with asparagus.
