This week has had its ups and downs. We'll start with the upside of things. Matt and I went and saw the Rolling Stones at the Staple Center here in Los Angeles. It was incredible!!!!! Maybe Sex, Drugs, and Rock N Roll isn't that bad of a life! These guys rocked out harder than I could have imagined. Anyone could only hope to be as energetic and witty as these guys are at what ever age they are. Loved LOVED! They still have a couple of shows left and if you can make it one, its SOO worth it.
We made a big pot of black bean chili, so we turned the leftovers into a lasagna. Layered it with crushed tomatoes, pasta, black bean, pasta, sautéed spinach with onions and garlic, parm, pasta, black beans, crushed tomatoes, pasta, black beans and cheese. Baked coved at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes (until bubbly) and then uncovered at 425 until top is perfectly melty and slight golden on the edges.
Served with guacamole, pickled jalapeño, and toasted sunflower seeds. Yeah!!
Ground chicken egg rolls. The recipe can be found on the blog. Go to search on the blog and type in egg rolls. We are gonna be hitting the road for...who knows what..and who knows for how long. Its time to clean out the pantry and eat the fridge. So we've been having pho with our frozen stock and also Bun Bo Hue, a spicy heartier Vietnamese soup that's basically pho with lemon grass, annatto seeds, and chili powders.
On Monday we were glued to the television to stay updated on the children at Plaza Elementary, and to watch in disbelief of what happened to Moore for the second time. It was comforting to have KFOR talking and broadcasting the updates and the happenings instead of CNN. Heartbreaking. Crying and donating was the only thing I've been able to do. Watching people helping out today put me to tears as well. So sweet to see everyone helping. Just awesome. If you'd like to help but can't physically:
