Grilled Cheese with Pesto and Tomato

Look at this buttery, crispy, delicious sandwich.

Such an easy way to make a simple meal feel fancy. This is why my husband always asks me to make his lunches - he says his are too boring.

Kale Almond Pesto

I'm cooking for 1 for the next few weeks thanks to the army. I have vowed that I will not fall to eating fast food and frozen junk...for the most part. I'm going to say some junk food is still allowed.

First up: Make some pesto!

Chickpea Hummus

I got around to making another batch of chickpeas. These weren't sprouted though. I made them in the slow cooker. Usually I boil water and quick hydrate, but I didn't feel like that today. This was my first go at making beans without doing that beforehand!

Brown Rice

I know a lot of people are scared or put off of brown rice because it takes longer to make than white rice. Well I'm here to tell you that it's easy and doesn't take that much longer at all!

Black Bean Sweet Potato Enchiladas

This morning before work I decided to start some black beans in the slow cooker. I didn't know what I was going to make, I just started them knowing I need to clean out my pantry before we move (I have a large stockpile of rice and dried stockpile, I mean borderline hoarding :x). I forgot to make the rice in the end, but I'm ok with that!

Breakfast Burrito

I love my new cast iron skillet. I'm still working out the kinks and watching a lot of youtube videos on how to maintain in. That being said, I'm using it for almost everything and it's (mostly) turning out really well.
