After a tough week, and a lot of monotony in my eats, life is slowly getting back to normal. To those bloggers who reached out to me in my last post, I cannot thank you enough. Your words really helped me get through the grief and know that there are such wonderful people as you all out there.
Luckily, I do have photos of my Mexican Mediterranean Madness. Okay, so maybe that is a bit of a stretch, but the alliteration was just too tempting. Basically it was me using leftover ingredients, but I could not resist getting creative with the name. As I have said before, I usually cook for just one (me!) so I use the same ingredients a lot in order to use them.
This creation was just a whole wheat pita, black beans, orange and red bell peppers, and corn.
I mashed the black beans with 1 tsp of cumin and some water while warming them up in the microwave. Then I layered it on the ww pita and sprinkeled on a little garlic and onion powder (perfect in a jiffy because this girl needs her garlic). Once I added the bell peppers and corn, I baked it on the oven rack for a few minutes at 350F until it to get it crispy. Then I transfered it to a baking sheet and sill pat to warm it up the rest. Yum!
And of course, what would a week be without oats? I thought it would be fun to take a few shots in the different steps of my breakfast. The lighting is not so great because our light bulb needed to be replaced, but hopefully you will enjoy it, too. I think there is something very comforting about a cinnamon swirl. Maybe it is just the thought of my childhood and the cinnamon raisin bread I used to eat on the weekends. Oh, traditions, traditions...
