This is my last month of classes for my master's degree, and the countdown is on!
3 weeks left of classes.
4 more papers.
1 major project.
It will feel so good to be done all this and be able to focus solely on finishing my thesis ... and Christmas shopping of course! BTW - 46 days until Christmas.
I have one Christmas party to attend in November.
I love when the festivities start early.
This week has started out great and has not been too busy. I had some time to cook, which was nice. I made some vegetarian enchiladas on Monday.
6 large wraps (or 10 smaller ones)
4 small sweet potatoes, peeled
1 19oz can black beans
1 small can green chilis
1 small white onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp chili powder
salt to taste
1 jar/can red enchilada sauce
Toppings: I used Cheese, avocado, pico de gallo, sour cream and cilantro
Directions: Boil and mash the sweet potatoes. Stir in the black beans, chilis, and spices. Meanwhile, caramelize the onion with the garlic. Add this to the sweet potato mixture. Fill the wraps generously and wrap tightly. Place in a 9x13 pan that has been spread with some enchilada sauce. Top with cheese and more enchilada sauce, or pico de gallo. Bake for 30 minutes @ 350.
(My eyes were bigger than my stomach, and I gave up halfway through):
After work today I whipped up some of my hippie sauce. We enjoyed it in a brown rice bowl with tofu and loads of veggies.
Mmmmmmmm! It tastes best when eaten with chopsticks. I think all things do :-)
This time of year especially, veggies are a big priority for me. I swear they help me fend off invading germs. I am planning on polishing off an entire giant bag of Costco spinach this week. Mostly in the form of Green Monsters.
Lately I have been loving this recipe for my monsters:
- Approx. 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (vanilla, regular, or chocolate)
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 3 giant handfuls of spinach
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 T unsweetened cocoa
Mix it to smithereens and get your glow on!
How has your November been so far?
