this is my lunch at least once a week.
i made it up.
i am sure others have thought of it….but when i say i made it up i mean that one day i was craving some spice
so i looked through our cupboard.
i had these ingredients and i threw them all together and ate it with chips.
i make one cup of rice in the microwave.
it takes five minutes.
my friend shana said “you make rice in the microwave?!” and i asked surprisingly “is there another way?”
neither of us had ever tried a different way from what we’d learned.
i learned how to make rice on my own…by reading the totally generic brand box microwave directions.
in our apartment…16 years ago.
i have never even looked to see if there was another set of directions on the box!
i am dorky like that.
when it’s ready then i pour everything in the rice bowl.
except i only use HALF the black beans.
i just put the other half of the can in the fridge for my second batch later in the week.
i use like…three? shakes of tabasco…maybe four.
and a hand full of cheese.
sometimes i warm it up for another two minutes.
but sometimes i don’t.
ONCE i had left over corn with cream cheese from the night before…i threw that in…oh yeah….it was delish.
i grab a bowl of chips and i eat till i am full 🙂
and that is it.
and not THAT bad for you….i think….maybe the chips?
i am hungry.
i think i will go make some now.
also….i have wrapped it up in tortillas and eaten it that way.
and my friend would like to add LOTS of cilantro in hers…it is probably yummy…but i NEVER have cilantro…
so i can’t prove it.
