Coming on the tail of a rather manic Monday during which I worked ’til 9:00 PM, this might be called a tireless Tuesday. As in, I had no choice but to tirelessly revise, revise, and revise some more. But I did it, and I own tomorrow’s 8:00 AM deadline. Of course, the next two weeks will involve even more revisions and two more deadlines, but I’ll deal with those as they come. Today, I was just glad I didn’t need to stay super late to get everything finished.
I did, however, stay ’til around 6:00. When I got home, I almost took the uber lazy route and made pasta for dinner. But after rooting around in my pantry and discovering a can of Full Circle organic refried beans (don’t judge me), I whipped up this sexy number:
That’s a mountain of Texmati rice, refried beans, mushrooms, onions, and Newman’s Own black bean & corn salsa, shamelessly lounging on a whole wheat tortilla. Ooh la la. I know this color palette calls for some green, and my burrito would’ve been perfect with some lettuce, but alas, my crisper drawer is not feeling the love at the moment. Still, though, I ate two of these babies and am feeling happy and full right now.
Now that things will be a little slower at work, I fully intend to dive back into MoFo with a vengeance. Between my travels and my crazy busy-ness, I haven’t been able to devote as much time as I’d like to putting together creative and fun dishes, and I’ve been sadly neglecting the ambitious themes I created in my days of naivete. But I’m hopeful that I’ll have more time soon, so here’s to a [slightly] more relaxed – and thus more foodlicious! – second half of November!
So – what’d you eat for dinner? How has your MoFo experience been so far?
