I finally caught up with the rest of the blog world, and made a light box! (Thank you, (Never)Homemaker!)

Check it out!

It was a fun afternoon project, and it made today’s eats look as delicious as they were!

Lunch: TJ’s chopped veggies, topped with garlic hummus

And for dinner, I decided to bust out the rice cooker my brother and sister-in-law got my for christmas, and whip up the recipe below:


Mexican Mess (sorry, I couldn’t think of a good name for this, and it does sort of look like a mess)

  • 1/4 cup long grain brown rice
  • 3/4 cup bell peppers (I used all three colors!)
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • black pepper
  • garlic salt
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast

I just cooked the rice in the rice cooker, while I sauted the onion and peppers in a skillet (sprayed with a little olive oil) with lime juice, black pepper, and garlic salt. Then once the rice was basically cooked, I tossed in the peppers and beans, and let them all sit in the cooker for a bit. Then I took it out and topped it with nutritional yeast, for an extra vitamin/protein boost! This was SO delicious and easy to make!


Anyone got any photo taking tips they want to share? I’m hoping to get a basic version of Photoshop soon, so I can play around with editing!


I hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend!
