The dinner I had been envisioning turned out as amazing as I hoped! Just the other day, I had been hatching a plan for a meal for a few hours and then was really disappointed when it wasn’t everything I had built it up to be… but my word this was good!!
I nuked the remainder of my spaghetti squash and scooped out all the stringy innards. While that was going, I heated up some black beans on the stove and added chili powder for a bit of heat. As soon as the microwave was free, I tossed in half a sweet potato and cubed it.
I piled that good stuff together in a bowl, topped with some shredded mexican cheese, heated it to melt the cheese, and topped it all off with a healthy glob of guac and some TJ’s Cilantro dressing.
SO. GOOD. OMG.
I should have made it for 2, since Jacob was looking at it longingly. He had a less exciting dinner of pancakes and fried eggs – as good as it sounds, it was not so beautiful as my wonderful creation. He did make me a little pancake though with chocolate chips for my dessert :)
I hopped on a long, but VERY productive conference call with leaders after dinner and just got done. It was a great way to end my work day. The parents and teachers I work with are truly inspiring – they work all day, are busy with their kids, but still are able to dedicate time to improving schools, which is sorely needed.
Ok, I think it’s veg time… have a good night!
