Biting my nails over here in the Tar Heel State….
Wow guys, I am still so impressed with the comments on the Barney Butter contest!! Winners will be announced first thing in the AM!
Needless to say, you all evoked a huge craving for nut butter in me so I promptly had some for snackOn top of Gina’s banana bread, half a real banana and some Kashis –
I was starving around 5:30 and realized the husband was not due home until after 7 so I ate knowing I probably spoiled my appetite. I thought I didn’t for a while, but by 7:30 dinnertime I wasn’t really hungry but could tell I still needed a meal.
Bone Suckin’ Bowl
This meal was supposed to be a beans + rice Mexican dish, but it turned more into BBQ bowl. We initially were going to use a few jalapenos from our garden, but the husband put them in a pot and did NOT take out the seeds (he should know after 1.5 years of marriage that I do NOT eat the seeds!) and the entire house was BURNING our lungs. We were coughing like there was smoke. We had to open the doors and throw out the jalapenos and just start over. Luckily there were no other veggies in the pot yet!
I boiled some black-eyed peas from scratch this afternoon and made some short grain rice too. Also involved were collard greens, frozen corn and frozen okra, both veggies that I think taste nearly as good frozen as they do fresh. I tied the veggies together with a few TBSP of Bone Suckin’ Sauce, coriander and cumin. Plus some Mexican cheese + greek yogurt on top.
I am staying up tonight and am planning to skip early morning workout in favor of running with my Girls on the Run coach before my lab test. The next 48 hours or so are going to be insane with 2 tests, my school lunch menu, and packing and leaving for my Chicago trip just minutes after my Organic test. No time to pack!
Back to the TV!! I
