Yeah, they don’t really have anything to do with one another, do they? But I did go ice skating yesterday and I did try a little something different with black beans for my bean wraps.
Ice skating was fun! I technically had tried it one time before when I was a kid, but I did it for only a couple of minutes. I couldn’t figure out how to go forward and I remember that I kept flapping my arms and then I just gave up.
This time I went around the rink about five times. It was scary! There were people EVERYWHERE so I almost collided with quite a few of them. And the ice was torn up! I would think I was going one way, only to find myself in a couple of divots being led a different direction. I think if I got the hang of it, it would be a great workout!
On to forbidden rice. My husband loved the idea of forbidden rice. He talked about it for weeks. Seriously, I think it was weeks of going to the store, seeing it, talking about eating it, and then continuing on with the grocery shopping. Well, we finally decided to buy it and try it.
It doesn’t really taste any different than say, plain white rice. Personally, I prefer brown rice. But I am glad that we tried it! It is no longer forbidden. =)
And we also had some bean wraps. While I have yet to find a clean tortilla that actually folds up, I do love the filling of this bean wrap. Black beans, peppers, green onions, cilantro, lemon juice and greek yogurt.
Sooo good! We used a can of black beans (thoroughly rinsed and drained), about a 1/4 cup of bell pepper, one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, three ounces (86 grams) of greek yogurt, and green onions and/or cilantro to taste. Steamed broccoli and brown rice with salsa on the side. Yum!
I have used that picture before, but I didn’t remember to take a picture of the whole meal this time. The only difference is that I used a whole-wheat tortilla wrap instead of the flour tortilla in the picture. I did find a whole-wheat tortilla with less preservatives than the ones we were using before.
I hope you're having a great weekend! Tried anything new lately? Care to share?
