It feels good to be back. I’m slowly getting into a manageable routine with my two boys. Granted I’m not getting very much sleep (on par of 3-4 broken hours of sleep per night), but we’re surviving. The boys get fed, bathed and dressed and I get my coffee and chocolate. All is right in the world.
Then comes the dreaded conversation of what in the world to fix for dinner. Keeping up with things these days is just hard. I barely squeeze in time to take a shower on a daily basis, let alone meal plan or even grocery shop! I have yet to go to the grocery store with both children. We’ll leave that adventure for another time. Eep!
So, when you have no idea what to make for dinner, you get creative and make it work. Using just a few ingredients, this roasted and spicy dinner became a reality! It was super simple to whip up and we added some grilled steaks and heated up some frozen veggies to make a well rounded and VERY flavorful meal!
Weeknight meal success.
P.S. You’ll probably need a tall glass of milk after this one, especially if you go heavy with the siracha mayo. It’s spicy, but OH so good!
P.P.S. If you could only see me as I’m writing this right now. My husband and oldest son are sleeping in their beds while Hayden is sound asleep on my chest. Meanwhile, I’m listening to the crackling fire in the fireplace and savoring the last few moment of quiet before Hayden wakes up for another feeding. Now, if only someone could go fetch me a warm chocolate chip cookie, things would be perfect.

Coffee and chocolate are my 2 must’s per day! I will never ever give those up, unless its killing me 🙂 Beautiful family of yours, and what a pretty sight picturing you with a baby snoozing on your chest.. We love spicy, this will be a must have!
Yum! These look delicious! We love sriracha, and are always looking for different ways to use it. Thanks for sharing!
Hi there, I am new to your blog! Love your site and can’t wait to follow along. Congrats on your new little one and I hope someone got you that cookie. Post partum hunger is no joke!
I definitely am making that sriracha mayo – it looks really delicious and I’m sure will be perfect with a lot more things other than roasted potatoes too!
Definitely!!! Gosh, I put it on noodles as a spicy sauce, dip veggies, even add a little water or oil and make it into a salad dressing! The possibilities are endless. 🙂
