This last week I posted a menu with all the recipes that we had in our household, I plan on doing this more often unless you guys request for it no more. It seems there are weeks I want to make entirely my own recipes but then some of them I can’t even fathom the idea of making anything. Does anyone else have this issue? Kitchen duty overload? Is there such a thing? Well, I’m going to call it kitchen fatigue just to make it sound a bit better than laziness at its finest. Any other suggestions for this disease? I know I can’t be alone on this one… Anyways back to the topic all of you so kindly have clicked on my little blog today – recipes and photos! I shall not disappoint! Hopefully these will give you some sort of idea of what you can make, either a cooking week or a Kitchen Fatigue Syndrome week.

This was actually just something I tossed together and probably might be the most exciting to look at in appearance but is rather tasty to the tastebuds. It contains a ton of cooke with no salt black beans, a large steamed sweet potato, a ton of spinach (on the bottom) and 2 tbsp of salsa. It’s a simple Tex-Mex dinner or lunch that you can toss together and not really think too hard of what is for your next meal. A lot of time I like to toss all of these things together, or other vegetables, and just leave it in a microwave safe container. Then when I’m hungry, it’s all set.
Please keep in mind it was my lazy week, so this was a bowl of leftovers and, oh my, was it good! On the bottom I had two large servings of mixed vegetables (edamame, corn, carrots, & broccoli), steamed lentils made with vegan beef-free broth, and some leftover Thug Kitchen Jicama and Carrot Slaw. There were a lot of flavors mixed around in this bowl but it just worked somehow to my personal tastebuds. Even though I would prefer fresh meals, having a few bags of mixed vegetables in the freezer is a handy option for making a full meal of leftovers while not having to touch a knife in the kitchen. (Yes, that means less dishes to do at the end too! Win-win!)
