Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – just as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday – as I’m able.
Good morning! How was your weekend? So this past Thursday – I was out of meat and had peppers, onions, mushrooms and avocados to use up. So I made up a batch of my Spanish rice in the Instant Pot (works the same in rice maker) and I sautéed the peppers, onions and mushrooms with some taco seasoning. I also roasted on a sheet pan – two cans of black beans and a can of corn with a little taco seasoning! These were items I had in my pantry anyway . . .and by roasting them on a sheet pan it added a ton of flavor and I liked the way the consistency changed (beans dried out a bit and split open, creating a meatier flavor).
Anyway, we made burrito bowls . . . first rice, then the sauteed vegetables and topped with roasted black beans and corn! You guys – it was soooo good! We added toppings like guacamole, sour cream, cheese, black olives, lettuce. . . and we all had seconds! So next time you’re looking for a meatless meal option, this was a keeper! I’ll definitely be making it again.
On Saturday night I hung some patio lights on our front porch. I’ve been meaning to do this since we moved in – it’s been too long. I’m looking forward to some porch get togethers with friends as more people get vaccinated and things get better. Are you ready for summer? I can’t wait. If you’re looking for patio lights – Amazon has a lot of string lights to choose from!
We cleaned our roofs, gutters and skylights this weekend, too. Keeping up with all the homeowner chores is never fun, but feels good to get all that moss chipped off and to start the summer season all refreshed from those wet, mossy winter months! I also cleaned out the garden shed so that I can start digging in the dirt and getting plants in the garden soon. I can’t wait! Are you planting a garden this summer?
These Homemade Garlic Knots from Baker by Nature popped up on my Pinterest feed this weekend look so yummy! They do require bread flour – the author’s test run of all-purpose flour reportedly didn’t work well but they can be made in advance and frozen.
