Roast a Radish, Microwave a Roast

Sunday is my favorite day of the week...

I really enjoy how laid back Sundays feel. For some reason, Saturday always feel a bit stressful to me. It's like I feel like I HAVE to get out and do something. Sundays, the pressure is off, and I can just enjoy myself. Love it!

I had a late lunch today, from one of my favorites: Chipotle!

Oh! I also picked up the book club book from the library. It's Daughter of Fortune. Not a typical read for me, but it's an Opera Bookclub Pick, which usually means it's pretty good.

Dinner tonight was quick, easy, and delicious. I made a microwaveable Hormel Pork Roast. These are tasty and quick for those nights you don't want to spend alot of time in the kitchen. I served the pork roast with a side salad and roasted radishes.

Our salads are usually different. Ryan's is always bigger and  includes more mushrooms because he loves them. Mine usually includes more tomatoes. His almost always had walnuts or cheese. Tonight, I cut up a colby jack cheese stick, because I had a feeling he wouldn't eat very many of the radishes. I know my husband. 

How to Roast Radishes

1. Wash and cut off their little tails and any bad spots.

2. Cut into quarter pieces.

3. Toss with a bit of olive oil, sea salt, and pepper.
4. Spread on a cookie sheet. Make sure you only do a single layer.  
5. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

I am soooo full right now. Radishes are seriously filling. I think, to my knowledge, this is the first time I've ever had a cooked radish. They were good!

I'm about to curl up in bed with my new book. I just finished The Handmaid's Tale by M. Atwood. All I can say is "WOAH." I really wished that had been a bookclub book because I felt the immediate need to discuss it. There is so much going on there. It made me wish I had been asked to read that in college, just so we could disect it in class! That was by far my favorite part of school.

Hope you're enjoying your Sunday night.

What's your favorite day of the week?



  1. Handmaids tale was handsdown my favorite read in highschool. You're right, a whole lot happened in that little book. You make me wanna read it again!

  2. I've never had cooked radishes. When I was little my mom would put them in salad and I was never a fan. I should give them a try again. My palate has probably changed by now!

  3. Let me know what you think of Isabelle Allende. I would highly recommend her memoir entitled Paula. It is a tear jerker, for sure.

    I am very interested in The Handmaiden's Tale. I just read The Blind Assasin a few months ago and loved it.

    I'll have to try baking radishes. Never thought of that before.

  4. I have never had cooked radishes either. I used to eat them sliced up with salt and I love them! It has been a while so maybe I will try this roasted method!

    Thursday is definitely my favorite day of the week!

  5. Mmm...burrito.

    My favorite day of the week is Thursday because I know I've made it through the hard part, now I just need to survive until Friday afternoon!

  6. I loved The Handmaid's Tale! I'm reading Cat's Eye by M. Atwood right now :)

    My fav day of the week? Probably saturday cause I get to sleep in!

  7. I love Fridays! It the last workday and signals the start of an awesome weekend.


I heart comments!
