Sorry I didn’t post yesterday. My day was SUPER busy: I was writing a poli sci paper all morning, had a flute rehearsal in the afternoon, finished the last of my chemistry homework and worked on a paper for Religious Studies. But luckily I am back and the weekend is here!
Rewinding back to the morning, I got up at 6:15 to run at the Rec. The weather was NOT good for running: rainy and in the 30s, and I knew going to the Rec and being able to watch the Today Show would get me out of bed. I was sleepy but I made it there.
I ran 3 miles at all sorts of paces, but it probably worked out to be 9:45 min./miles. I read a bit of Top of the Morning because I got there before the Today Show started (so. early.) and then watched the show.
This run was kind of hard, likely because I hate treadmills and I haven’t run since Monday. I opted not to do my speed work on Wednesday because my hip was hurting and I put off my Thursday run because I was so busy.
I came back to my room and stretched and showered and then made breakfast as fast as possible. I was starving!
After class, I picked up lunch from the dining hall and did some packing because I came home for the weekend! I am glad I did because it’ll be nice to recharge before the next two weeks of intense studying. I also convinced Allen to come home too, which will make the weekend even better.
Our drive home was cold and rainy, but we finally made it, and I had one thing on my mind: Black bean and potato nachos from Oh She Glows.
This recipe was SUPER simple and also really satisfying.
First, I tossed two potatoes sliced into wedges with olive oil, chili powder, salt and pepper. They went into the oven while I worked on the beans.
Red onion, garlic and red bell pepper:
Cooked until the onions were translucent. Then I added a can of black beans, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. After the beans were heated through, I turned off the heat and waited for the potatoes.
This was a TASTY meal, but the portions were a little small for my taste. I would probably portion a potato per person and maybe up the beans as well. With canned beans that’s a little more difficult but if I had cooked a big bunch of black beans I could portion maybe 2/3 to a cup of beans. But other than that this dish was great!
Tonight I am watching baseball and may make myself a little smoothie because I’m still a little hungry. Happy weekend!
