I love the "I don't really have anything to eat" that turns into a gourmet dinner. I came home tonight knowing I had little more than lettuce in my fridge and a half of an avocado that needed to be consumed before it had to be tossed. I was getting ready for a simple salad and grain meal and call it a night. I didn't feel like shopping or eating out after this very busy day.
When I opened the fridge - I also had a sweet potato and way up on a shelf - yes, a can of Eden organic black beans. Fortuitously the mail had delivered my ivory teff today so you can just imagine what my incredibly wonderful dinner was. Yes, I lightly toasted some teff and cooked it up into creamy goodness. While that was taking its 20 minutes to cook, I pan roasted the sweet potato in small chunks, tossing it onto the quickly assembled salad with a nice ume vinaigrette. It was delightful to look at and wonderfully satisfying. Now I'm all set with a mug of licorice tea to dig into some homework.
