As I may have expressed last night, Johnnycakes are reaching the bottom of the barrel as far as groceries and dinner items are concerned. Johnnycakes is at school tonight so I thought I would run to the grocery store and pick up something remotely healthy to eat as well as a few other edible items. Then I remembered that Johnnycakes had my car while his is in the shop. There went that idea.
Left to my own devices, I scoured the fridge for something to eat. I was super excited when I discovered Morningstar Black Bean burgers in the freezer. As many of us know, beans provide a lot of protein in the absence of meat and pack a lot of other healthy attributes. Combined with corn tortillas, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, cheese and salsa, I had all the fixins' for a tasty meal. Not to mention the cheap eats!
I didn't really put too much foresight into planning the photo because I was hungry at that point and the whole concept was a bit cumbersome. Basically, I just piled everything on top of the corn tortilla and ate it! You can't really see the black bean burger or melted cheese in the photo (hence the "mystery") but let me assure you they tasted good.
Tonight's dinner hit the spot, especially after I realized that for probably the first time in my life I skipped breakfast. I actually forgot to eat breakfast today. That is an absolute first! I never miss a meal:)
The best part is that there were two black bean burgers in the freezer, so I can make Johnnycakes a quick and healthy meal if he is hungry when he gets home.
