Things have been busy around here, and it is only the start of my school semester!
I just realized that I have neglected my recipe page for a WHILE. I’ll get on that this weekend… :( Sorry y’all!
My class this semester is a long 2 1/2 hours. It isn’t so bad, however, because it is a nutrition based class. Right up my alley… right?!? I absolutely love it! I can proudly say that I can sit through the entire class and my eyelids never get heavy. Such an accomplishment for me!
He whipped up a great Tex-Mex meal. Ready in less than 30 minutes! Boo-ya!
- Millet (we had leftovers) or you could use any grain here- quinoa, rice, etc. We kept it gluten-free.
- black beans cooked with cumin, salt, and pepper
- stir fried veggies- bell pepper, onion, corn, okra, and broccoli with chili powder
Kroger has the best frozen veggies. They have a pack of frozen bell pepper with onions for the times (like tonight) when you are in a mad dash. All of our veggies were frozen, except the okras. Those babies are from our friends’ garden. YUMMY!
Pile it all in a bowl over some freshly chopped greens. Top with salsa, fresh cilantro, cheese, corn chips, and guacamole! I had a fresh avocado, but I forgot about it until the meal was over! Big bummer.
I ate 3 big bowls and 1/3 of a large mason jar of my Daddy’s salsa. Working my brain worked me up an appetite!
Luvy was definitely my knight in shining armor tonight! Happy belly = Happy Brittany.
What is your favorite throw together meal?
