The Answer is Always Now – Day 2

20150111_094926 (2)Welcome to day 2 of what I’ve been eating!  Let’s get started.

I woke up late today, so I’m going to call this brunch:  whole wheat toast, grapes, two sunny-side up eggs. (Well, mostly.  Yes, I broke one of the yolks cracking it into the pan.  Yes, it was still delicious.)

I also had some hot tea, and started pre-planning meals for the work week.  I made a big batch of Quinoa Oatmeal from the Thug Kitchen cookbook my awesome sister got me for Christmas.  Not only are there fantastic recipes, I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve laughed out loud reading it!  Highly recommended.

It’s true. Cats DO like obedient people.

I’m calling my late breakfast brunch because next was dinner.  Dinner for me was a burrito bowl (with both chicken and steak – both from Brunty Farms).  I made extra so I could pack leftovers for lunch tomorrow.  Oops, spoilers!

Brown rice, avocado, tomatoes, cheese and yes, sour cream. But not too much!

I marinated the chicken in a tequila lime marinade, and the beef got a sprinkling of Penzey’s Southwest Seasoning. It was the hands down winner.

Now, this may look like a lot, but I’d like to point out that although I had one burrito bowl, my boyfriend ate three – yes, three – regular burritos with flour tortillas (two steak, one chicken – he doesn’t like to mix meats in his burritos).  There are reasons that I tend to cook in large quantities!

My burrito bowl!

Along with a couple glasses of iced tea and water, and a handful of gummy bears while watching a movie (sorry, didn’t take a picture of them), that’s it!  Monday, here I come!

    • The southwest seasoning was great – thank you for that Christmas present! The bowl feels more substantial to me than a regular burrito, with all the same great flavors.
