I decided to run on Sunday night instead of during the day. It was absolutely beautiful. The sun was out, it was sixty degrees, and the trees are all starting to bud. I took a new route that lead me over bridges, around ponds, and through pretty neighborhoods in Charlotte.
After my run, I decided to make some sweet roasted garlic carrots and crab cakes from Whole Foods. I LOVE carrots and do not make them nearly enough. I found a huge bag at BJ’s wholesale and they were fresh and perfect for roasting. Usually when I eat seafood, I make roasted red potatoes. The carrots were a nice change up!
Carrots are really easy to prepare too. I added them to an oven safe dish and tossed them in olive oil, low sodium soy sauce, brown sugar, pepper, dill weed, garlic powder, italian seasoning, and added in some garlic cloves.
Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, take them out and flip them over. Bake for another 25 minutes. You can take a test bite and if they’re no longer crunchy, they’re done!
The Maryland crab cakes were really good. A bitttttt salty, but still very good and flavorful. I will be making homemade crab cakes soon!
The cakes cooked perfectly and were crisp on the outside and moist in the middle.
I had leftovers from Chipotle and Chopt salad, so I mixed them together for a salad to go with the dinner.
This was a great Sunday dinner!
