Baked String Potatoes & Carrots with Steamed Brussel Sprouts

Happy Thursday!

I wanted to share this meal with you guys but was so busy prior to making it I didn't take as many pictures as I usually do. I was on grandma duty and just headed straight to the kitchen when I walked in.

Thursday's Treat..,Baked String Potatoes & Carrots with Steamed Brussels Sprouts!

Ingredients:
-medium size potatoes
-carrots
-brussels sprouts
-honey
-lemon pepper
-salt
-herbs & spices
-Pam / olive oil
I washed 6 medium potatoes and used my handy slicer to cut them into strings I took 5 medium carrots and did the same. In a large bowl I added pinch of salt, 3 tbsps of honey, 2 tbsps of my fav Adobo spice you can use what you like, 1/2 tbsp of lemon pepper mixed it up added my potatoes and carrots till coated very well sprayed some Pam on my baking tray and placed my veggies on the tray.I made sure to spread them out evenly. I baked them in regular oven for 30 minutes at 350.

At the last 12 minutes I took my medium pot filled with 2 cups of water added pinch of salt and 1/2 tbsp of seasoning again bought to a boil and added a handful of my sprouts for about 10 minutes till they were tender when poked with fork. I didn't have my regular steaming tool handy but dropping them in the boiled water worked pretty good too. 


I had some left over chicken breasts I chopped up and heated in Microwave cut up half of an Avocado and done....delish, healthy quick and fun. Lil mama also enjoyed it when she walked in from   school. I was happy that even though I had a very long day I didn't cave into eating take out. Enjoy

Always stress free xo
