This week's dinner

Its no secret to many friends of mine that I do not cook often! I love super quick and easy meals. My favorite place to shop is Trader Joe's. This week Matty and I paid off our car and so we haven't had tons of extra money lying around. So that means EAT THE FOOD YOU HAVE! (And don't go out to eat!)

So this week I cooked.

I cooked on two nights and I made the exact same thing.

I sauteed some onion, and then heated up a can of black beans with some coconut milk (the light version) and added some curry seasoning. I sprinkled some cheese on top. I really liked this quick meal and so I made it a second night, this time for Hannah and I. She liked it too, yay!

I also sliced some cucumber and seasoned it with chile powder, lemon and salt. I remember when I used to live with Lilian she taught me to put spicy seasoning on lots of things, especially apples and cucumbers. I need to find the seasoning she used because the one I had didn't really cut it. But it was fun to reminisce on old times with Lilian.

Happy weekend everyone!
Try out some EASY recipes and then you will all have more time to work out. ;)


  1. Jenn,
    Thanks for sharing the easy black bean one-dish dinner. I'm going to try this today! Thanks too for reading my blog.

  2. I have an awesome Mexican spice I like to put on fresh fruit, especially watermelon. It's pico de gallo con limon.

  3. Hmmm... I have a stray cucumber in my fridge. Looks good!

  4. I love your "motto". Easy recipes so you can work out longer!! Haha! I don't share the same motto, but that is how I cook now as it is just dad and I. Those beans look yummy! lubm

  5. It does look delicious...but I am not sure that I can find black beans anywhere. =(

    And I don't have coconut milk or curry seasoning. Very exotic! =D
