Vince had a dentist appointment this afternoon and it took about three hours. I was enjoying my time alone, knitting, listening to Pandora. I kept telling myself I needed to come up with a plan for dinner but I was totally absorbed in my knitting.
I happened to look at Facebook and saw that a friend had shared what she was having for lunch. She had sweet potatoes, black beans, cilantro and yogurt.
Leaving a comment, I asked how she fixed the sweet potato. She baked hers in the microwave since she had just one to cook. Not being a fan of the microwave, I cooked ours in the oven, fixed black beans in the Instant Pot and kinda took it from there.
To my friend’s ingredients, I added avocado and lime juice.
A bit of salt and pepper and the biggest part of our dinner was ready.
I can only go so long without Pioneer Woman’s Tomato Soup. That was what I had planned to cook tonight but hadn’t decided what to fix with it til I saw the sweet potato/black bean salad.
I was impressed with dinner . . if I have to say so myself! 🙂
