Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Colorful Southwestern Skillet Dinner


I've mentioned before I will sometimes plan dinner around the sour cream (for example).  Well, this dinner's inspiration came from the big bowl of pico de gallo sitting in my refrigerator.  At first, I thought I'd make stuffed peppers, but then I thought, "Who am I kidding?  I don't even like stuffed peppers, but I don't mind little bites of bell peppers." Thus, in the middle of dinner preparations, the plan changed. 

Colorful Southwestern Skillet Dinner

2 c. cooked brown rice
1 (15-oz) can black beans
2 green bell peppers, chopped
2 c. corn
2 c. pico de gallo
shredded cheese to sprinkle over top
olive oil

Heat a bit of olive oil in a skillet.  Saute the peppers for a few minutes, then add in the rice, beans, corn, and pico de gallo.  Cook until hot, stirring occasionally.  Add shredded cheese on top and heat for a few minutes more. 

Thanks for color!

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
