roasted strawberries and happy choices…

This past month has been wonderful. Really, truly wonderful.
I feel like I’ve really hit my stride. 
It all really boils down to a few ideas I’ve allowed to percolate in my mind. 

Here goes:

  • Happiness is a choice.
  • But it’s one you need to make constantly. 
  • Believe in miracles.
  • And that the universe has your back. It does.
  •  When all of the above fails, remember that there are always extraordinary things happening. 

Oh, and this weekend I made these: roasted tomatoes and roasted strawberries! So yum!  

Roasted Strawberries:

  • One big carton of strawberries.
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup.
  • 1 tbsp port wine.
  • 1 tsp vanilla.
  • 1 tiny pinch salt.
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil.

Preheat oven to 350f. Trim strawberries and cut them in half. Place them in a baking dish (not a baking sheet as the juices will drip all over your stove… messy!) Mix all other ingredients in a bowl and pour over strawberries. Give the berries a swirl so that they are equally covered in liquid. Bake for 30-40 mins. Let cool and enjoy alone, over yogurt, with granola, in a salad… YUM!

At the same time, you can also make Roasted Tomatoes!

  • One big carton of cherry tomatoes.
  • 2 tbsp olive oil.
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup.
  • 1 tbsp white wine or white balsamic vinegar.
  • 1 pinch salt.

Preheat oven to 350f. Cut tomatoes in half. Place them in a baking dish (not a baking sheet as the juices will drip all over your stove… messy!) Mix all other ingredients in a bowl and pour over tomatoes. Give the tomatoes a swirl so that they are equally covered in liquid. Bake for 30-40 mins. Enjoy!

Finally, please send some love to my friends, Mark and Lynne, and help Mark heal

Much love.
