New Attempts in the Kitchen

Those that know me well know that I've been in a funk lately, which is partially why I haven't posted in so long.  Obstacles has been the word of the week for me: life as an expat + my relationship + my other 15,879 thoughts running through my head can sometimes get overwhelming.  

Any who, instead of being productive this week, I've wasted a lot of time on Pinterest.  But not all "wasted time" is really wasted, right?  My addiction to the wonderful site led me to discover this: 

just like Chipotles.  

My new goal is to make one new recipe a week, and so even though this recipe only consists of about 3 ingredients, I'm proud to say that I actually made it the other night.  My grandma would be so proud that I'm cooking.  

It was so yummy that you couldn't even tell that we made it with brown rice instead of white.  And although boyfriend squeezed a 1/2 cup of lime juice, instead of the juice from 1/2 a lime (basically 5x the amount of lime that was needed), it still turned out excellent.  

So.  Use all the lime that you want.  And try it.


  1. I guess you could save 5 minutes in Pinterest and use them to send me an email!!!!! Miss you!!!

  2. Hello my love... I hope everything is okay. Remember, these feelings are totally normal. I'm just a message away!
