Oscar and Parsnip Fries

I woke up early this morning to watch the Oscar nominations.  They were on at 7:30 central.  I’m always up by then (and getting ready), but I got up extra early so I could sit and eat breakfast while watching.  I think I should try to get up early enough to enjoy my breakfast.

I wasn’t surprised about any of the Oscar nominations really.


I started my morning with a Van’s belgium waffle with Chocolate Peanut Butter on top.

It kept me pretty full.  I really didn’t need my morning snack.

I bought some brie at the grocery store, and I decided to use it in pizza.  I topped an english muffin with brie and apple.

Paired with a spinach salad and a side of edamame.

Dinner with salmon and something new for me.  Parsnip fries!  I’m not sure I’ve ever had parsnips before.

I topped the salmon with smart balance and soy sauce.

I loved the parsnip fries.  They were nice and peppery.  The salmon was delicious too.


I used the elliptical for 40 minutes.  I decided to do some cross training instead of running today.

Have you seen any of the Oscar nominated films?

You can find the nominees here.   I’ve seen 60% of the Best Picture nominees.  I haven’t seen The King’s Speech, 127 Hours, Winter’s Bone, and The Kids Are All Right.  I want to see them though (well I’m not sure about Winter’s Bone).

  1. I tried to make parsnip fries once, and they were really bitter. I go for butternut squash fries instead…until somebody reveals the secret of parsnip fries I can actually eat.
