As promised, I lounged around all morning. Around 12:30, I started getting hungry and started formulating a wonderful creation in my head. I really wanted vegetables so the star of my lunch was broccoli!
I started with some steamed broccoli and plain quinoa
Then I topped it with black beans and a dollop of sour cream. Sorry about the bean overload on this blog but…
This was DIVINE! As I was eating the last bite I thought some hot sauce would have made this even better. Oh well, next time!
Dessert came in the form of this gift basket. Before going to work my dad broke open this puppy…
I ate the whole thing!
Just kidding! I made some tea (Peet’s Winter Solstice Tea!! Sooooo good!)
and enjoyed a few Godiva Dark Chocolate covered pretzels. Yum!!
Luckily a lot of the things in the basket don’t look that good. But these pretzels are pretty delicious! Back to my book and maybe some Food Network (I ❤ Giada and Ina!).
Tonight I’m making another recipe for my December Recipe Challenge! Have a great afternoon!

Oh my goodness, that gift basket! And I love that last picture, your teapot is so cute!
Holy chocolate! That basket is insane 🙂
That basket looks so good and so does your lunch. It’s impossible to eat too many black beans!
Holy crow, that thing is awesomeeee!
I still just love your black beans! How do you do it? I blended a can of black beans and it came out very light in color.
