Dinner and Success!

Well, I am here to tell you that I got more sleep last night! And it was WONDERFUL! Not that any of  you care because if you even read my post from yesterday, you didn't comment! You may not have even read it! I was suffering over here with NO SLEEP and you all didn't even care!

Kidding! It was Monday, you are forgiven! Anyway, to recap, I haven't been sleeping because I have a large dog who wants to get in our bed and sleep under the covers and we have to tell him thousands of times a night to get down, resulting in not sleeping one bit! Well, last night, we switched things up on him and switched the sides of the bed that we sleep on! And miraculously, it worked. I guess Max was just so confused that he didn't try to get on our bed! We slept more last night than we have in a while! It was great!

Another thing that I mentioned yesterday was that I was going to start telling you about some recipes that we were trying! Since I have a lot more time to do what I like to do best (cook) I can make more stuff! We had a pork loin in our refrigerator and I decided that last night would be the night it would end up on the table. It marinated all day yesterday in the fridge and then we roasted it last night. I made some Parmesan roasted potatoes to go with it as well. It turned out pretty good. I think I may change the sauce a little next time so it is less sweet (I don't like sweet things really). But all in all, this thrown together, last minute meal was pretty good, I would eat it again! It got approval from the husband too, so that is really all that matters right?! Here is a picture of the finished product:
Anyway, I am off to start my day! That means cleaning the floors in the kitchen! Rain this morning plus two dogs who love to play outside and can open the door to let themselves in equals muddy paw prints on my tile floor before I can catch them to wipe their feet!! Have a wonderful Tuesday!!


  1. That meal looks delicious!! I enjoy cooking, it is like a fun stress reliever for me, especially when I dont have a deadline and can take my time making the food I like!

  2. That looks SO GOOD!! How did you make your potatoes?? :-)


  3. Mmmm- I love parmesan potatoes! And glad your bed switch solved the problem, how funny! :)

  4. Looks yummy! Have a nice day cleaning!! :-) Glad you got your sleeping situation fixed up!

  5. Just came across your blog, love all your positive posts!
    I LOVE your switcharoo idea. I think my husband and I may have to try that, we also have a large dog who thinks she deserves to sleep under the covers resulting in her waking me up multiple times a night!
