So because I have been too lazy too cute, possibly too busy as well but I like you to think that all I do when I get home from work is sit on my fat ass vs the errand-running-dog-parking-work-outing-petsitting things I do typically after work. Doesn't the saying go "no rest for the weary"? Surely the ambigous they who came up with that was speaking about me....because remember: it's all about me! Haha. You know I'm clowning. No, but on a more serious note. On top of the suggested laziness I have been pretty busy and therefor don't get around to making dinner, though dinner last night was a good one. Easy and delicious and heated the hell out of my kitchen. I couldn't walk to my bedroom for 2 hours after cooking because I felt like I had fallen into the pits of hell when walking through the kitchen. Last night I grilled up some Applegate Farm's chicken andouille sausage. To go with the sausage, which by the way has non-pork casing- I cooked up a package of yellow rice- I love that stuff- and also made a pot of black beans, mixing canned black beans with half a can of rotel and some red pepper flakes. I topped the black beans off with choppe cilantro and mixed the beans, rice, and sauasge together. It was tasty and super quick to make. It takes 20 minutes only because the rice has to cook down.
Oh and by the way Applegate Farms is the bombdiggity. You can buy them at Whole Foods and Trader Joes, amongst other places. I love the fact that they are pork and beef free since that is rare, even when speaking of chicken sausage.
OKay 'nuff said about my work ethic. I wanted to give you some links to some great recipes that I have found on this vast, wonderful online world known as the internet. Find the links below and don't be suprised if some of the recipes on there have changed your life. They have mine.;) Good Eatsmy virtual friends.
