I feel like I never write a post on Wednesdays. If you know me by now, then you know that I cook huge meals that last for days on end, which is probably why I have nothing to show for myself on this midweek day. My meal plan was a bit different this week, as I put three recipes on the list; I usually do two and then free for all fridays/saturdays which means spending $$, and spending money is back to being NO MORE in this household. Hint- it is because we have saved up our whole lives to buy a house and are slowing kissing every dollar goodbye as we see it being squandered for inspections, appraisals, re-inspections, pest inspections, legal fees, everything you can think of. The joys of life.
Please tell me what is making you happy this Wednesday. I am happy about discovering this new Black Bean/Rice recipe came on my radar last week. It is definitely a more complex version of a simple black beans and rice and has those polarizing ingredients that people either love or HATE WITH A PASSION (cilantro, avocado). I had gone back and forth with trying this, as being poor in college and in real life, I could have turned into a bowl of black beans and rice at one point I was consuming it so much. But I gave this one a chance and am never looking back..
I present to you, Black beans and rice for rich people (In reality, it only costs about $1.80 more per serving). Thank you to Bon Appetit magazine for this recipe and for only charging $4 per year to subscribe. I didn’t change a thing; it’s absolutely perfect. See the link for a better picture, we ate this at like, 9pm and my little point and shoot only likes natural light 🙂 I am such a good picture taker.
