List look familiar? With the exception of a few of these, your life is probably just as crazy as mine. In the midst of all of this, we still need to find time to lend a friend an ear, be a kind and compassionate spouse, spend time with family, etc., etc., etc.
I don't know about you, but sometimes I just want a day where everything is done. There isn't a stitch of dirty laundry, the house is sparkly clean, there is a hot meal on the table and I can have the whole day to tackle my ever growing to-do list. Not the real to-do list, the fantasy to-do list where I get to finish DIY projects I half started a month ago, or can go through my wedding pictures from over a year ago and actually create the wedding album I've been promising myself. If I just had a few more hours each day.....
Who am I kidding? If I had a few more hours each day, I'd probably spend them doing something for someone else instead of myself. Not because I'm a saint, but because I'm human (and a woman!) (;
This recipe is a result of one of those days. I had intentions of creating a new dish, but found that I'd let my corn tortillas sit in the fridge too long, and they began to mold (I've been meaning to make this dish for a couple weeks now, gross, I know). So, I came up with plan B and found a recipe that I'd been meaning to try. When all else fails, make breakfast for dinner.
And then clean up the kitchen....oye!
adapted from Deliciously Organic
1 c black beans (I used dried beans that I soaked overnight)
1 piece of kelp
1 clove of garlic
1/2 t salt
1/4 t cumin
juice of a lime
4 eggs, preferably pastured
1/4 c salsa, divided
1 avacado, sliced & divided
Bring the beans to a boil and then simmer, after about 30 min add the kelp (can skip all of this and just use a can of black beans, drained). Add beans, kelp, garlic, salt, cumin, and lime juice to a food processor and puree.
Heat a little olive oil in a pan. Cook eggs until whites are set, about 3 min.
Place beans in a bowl, top with eggs, salsa and avacado.
