This morning we had our first little snow flakes! Nothing came of it but that is a true sign that it’s really winter now and fall is officially over. This is the only time that I love winter because the holiday season is in full swing and I’m loving every second of it. Nothing like cold weather to make the house seem cozy and festive and so I accept it until January hits. Then I just resent it since it’s all doom and gloom.
This morning, despite the cold I had to drink a massive green smoothie to continue on my gentle detox. It has to be gentle since I’m nursing.
I also cooked black beans today. However, I was dealing with the teething baby and forgot to add more water and so the bottom burned!
I still got plenty of great beans out of it though and it inspired a tasty lunch too! I just put some lettuce, potato wedges (that I made yesterday) a tomato, black beans and hot sauce in a bowl….um, DELISH!
One of my better lunches in quite a while. I tend to fall back to the onion with salad and a baked potato but since I’m out of onions and still haven’t made a run to the store (maybe today!) I had to be creative. Maybe our separation is a good thing. haha
And now I’m off to try and slip in a shower while my teething baby is sleeping. He doesn’t give me much free time at the moment so I gotta do what I gotta do!
Here’s a pic of the little man chillin’ with daddy. Not sure why he’s laying in such a flop position. haha
Question: Do you fall into drab lunches? What do you do to make them more interesting?!
