Weekly Crock Pot Recipe: Brothy Veggies & Scallops
Posted Jan 14 2010 3:33pm
I whipped up something super easy and nutritious in the crock pot today.
I took a ton of root vegetables - radishes, parsnips, sweet potatoes and carrots and put them in the crock pot with a 2 cups of veggie broth, some green onions and Trader Joes 21 spice salute.
I chopped them all up, don' they look pretty!
The I put the broth and spice on.
I cooked these vegetables for 4 hours on low. Then I remembered that I had frozen scallops in the freezer. So, I threw in a cup of scallops and cooked them on low for another hour. Everything came out perfectly. Very filling and tasty. I couldn't resist showing off my cute little dish from Elm Studios again!
Today was one of those can't stop jamming food in my mouth days and no exercise happened. Grrrr I hate those kind of days, so I was happy to have a light dinner. Husband and I are going to do some yoga once the dinner belly dust settles and then after Harper goes to bed, we're going to watch District 9.
I am excited to watch this, I have heard good things! I asked for book recommendations the other day, but two good ones from the library showed up for me yesterday! I have a bit of advice for those of you who use the library, request the large print book, you will get new releases so much faster! I check out the Amazon top 100 books, then go to my library's website and request them, so when they call me to tell me I have something waiting for me, I never know what it is. Surprise! I do the same thing with movies, check the top DVD sales. I hope to start one this weekend. I read a good review in People magazine about a book called The Wench by Dolen Perkins- Valez, I think I will check it out next.
Back when I used to work in an office I always loved Thursday. It meant the weekend was near and I always jammed my weekends full to the brim. I think I am going to try out the Saturday free yoga at LuLuLemon, any Clevelanders want to join me, its at 10am in Beachwood! Also I have a half marathon on Sunday! I am so unprepared. I have ran a lot of halves before so I am not too worried about completing, but my time is going to stink. The course is hella hilly. At least its looks like its going to be 40ish, perfect running weather. Too bad there is over a foot of snow on the trails, its going to get sloppy, muddy and wet. I might have to think about changing my shoes and socks in between loops. The race is 2 loops, one a bit under 9, one a bit under 5. I am looking forward to being done with this race, then its time to start training for the Lexington Half and Cleveland Half. What about you Bloggy friends, anything good on tap for the weekend?
