Well, let’s just say that I hit both recipes out of the ballpark this weekend. I know, nothing like patting yourself on the back a little bit. Either I hit on some seriously idiot-proof recipes, or I have a bit more talent in the kitchen than even I thought I had.
First up, Black Bean and Butternut Squash Burritos. Let’s just make a mental note, shall we? This recipe calls for cumin. Never cooked with it before. But when I opened the bottle, I smelled the delicious aroma of taco seasoning and thought, “meh, I’ll add the 2 tsp it calls for”. This not only added an earthy flavour, but a butt-load of kick. LOL Thankfully, I had some vegan sour cream on hand and that cleared that problem right up (though, Darin refuses to sleep with me after eating said burritos…I think he is trying to tell me something…lol). Here is what it turned out like:
I am a “noob” when it comes to pictures, so you will have to bear with me.
Next up was Vegan Enchiladas. The picture for this didn’t turn out all that great – you can thank the Blackberry for that one. :/ I cannot find my digital camera since we moved back into our house last year, so I am stuck for now. Good Lord, I couldn’t stop eating this. Mmmm…get in my belly…:
You can find both recipes here and here. That is my “go-to” site, I think. I have pinned more of her recipes than I care to admit, and honestly, if these two are any indication of what the food is like, my tummy is in for a mega-treat!
This weekend has some fake mac n’ cheese on tap, along with curried chickpea salad and some sweet potato buns. I can hardly wait.
On another note, I am presently taking a course in a specific kind of database (called Summation – simply put, large case load file database, easily searchable, etc….I could go on, but I would probably bore you out of your tree, so I won’t). I have a certification exam in 3 weeks, so I will be devoting my time every other night to studying…that being said, I may not be able to post every single day. So bear with me. This is pretty important for my career (I am a senior legal assistant), so it does mean a lot to me and it is a pretty intensive course.
Well, I should probably be getting to bed. I have had a long Monday and a very long, busy weekend. I just want to snuggle in bed and sleep. See you in a couple of days!
