…that’s what she said. I know, I have the maturity level of a twelve year old boy.
Fast and easy run? Pretty fast (for me), not easy! I left my Garmin at home, so I don’t know how fast I was going, but I’d say I averaged between a 9:00-10:00 minute pace the whole time. I did five miles and was spent at the end. I thought my cough was gone, but it came back on my run. Figures.
Fast and easy breakfast? Yup! Repeat of yesterday’s. No pictures, it doesn’t look any different 🙂
Fast and easy lunch?
I just mashed chickpeas, mushrooms, goat cheese, spinach, and dried cranberries together and stuck it in a toasted pita. It sounds random, but I swear it works.
Fast and easy snack? Typical.
Unpictured second snack- A pint of ice cream that was smuggled via my purse into the dollar theater. I saw The Social Network and loved it. Actually, it’s now two dollars for admission- which is still a great deal 🙂
Quick and easy dinner? Awww yeah.
I had the day off work, so I COULD have cooked an elaborate dinner, gone grocery shopping, or used one of the hundreds of recipes I have bookmarked. Instead, I opted to make something fast using ingredients I had on hand.
Why-Am-I-Even-Writing-A-Recipe-For-These Stuffed Bell Peppers
- 1 bell pepper, sliced in half, cored and seeded
- 1/2 cup refried beans
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper
- 1 tbsp scallions, chopped
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- Throw it all in a bowl and mix it up.
- Stuff it in the pepper.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
- Yeah… I told you it didn’t need a recipe!
I had a serious craving for these that was finally satisfied. The last time I tried to make these, I stuck them in the oven, went upstairs to take a shower, came back downstairs… and my oven wasn’t working. I microwaved them, which is SO not the same. The oven-baked version is way better!
What is your favorite fast and easy meal? I need all the ideas I can get. Two words… night classes. UGH!
