Phew, what a day! An early morning Bodypump class to start the day off, then a hike with dad and rounded out with some lawn mowing. Despite feeling pretty exhausted right about now, I pulled together a pretty good take on rice and beans for dinner tonight, if I do say so myself :)
Brown Rice w/Black Beans and Squash
2c cooked brown rice
1/2 delicata squash, cut into 1/2" cubes and roasted (425deg for ~30min)
2-3 scallions, sliced on the bias
~2/3 can of black beans
ground cumin, corainder, s/p to taste (I eyeballed these)
Combine in a large bowl and mix well.
I had roasted the squash the other day, and used the brown rice that cooks in a bag in 90seconds, so it really couldn't have been easier. Just what I was looking for tonight! I thought about adding some sort of liquid, but couldn't figure out what, so I just let it be. A little harder to load all the little bits on your fork, but that's ok. The brown rice (which I had intended to be kasha... but the kasha gods were against me last night) went really well with the squash and beans-yum!
I'm all out of words, and wish it was bedtime (it's only 6:47)... Hoping I'll stay awake for American Gangster at 8, we'll see! I'll leave you with one picture from this afternoon's outing, looking out from a tiny waterfall that must've been a whole lot bigger at some point to form that sort of striations in the rock! (I don't know what the appropriate terms are here, and feeling a bit lazy, so i'll leave it at that!) Have a great weekend :)
