..in Lunch Lady Land

I've become the resident lunch lady.

{hopefully I'm a tadge cuter..}

John works close to home and likes to come home for lunch.
I like to cook.
Thus,  I cook him lunch.
I've been trying to get creative and healthy with my kitchen offerings.

soooooo..

This is what's happening in "Lunch Lady Land":
Today I had a hit!
I used lots of my favorite ingredients shown 
HERE
cilantro and limes are two of my favorite smells and tastes ever. I don't think you can ever have too much of either!

I had some leftover peppercorn pork loin from the other night and so this was a nice way to reuse that.
And it took maybe 10 minutes to do all of it. Having the pork done was the key.
It would be good with turkey or chicken too! In my lovely town of no ethnic  grocery food options I had to forgo the chipotle chiles but I replaced them with fresh cut red pepper. And I made my own salsa.
Also, I added black beans because  a.) extra protein and  b.) they're delicious.
John, who is a fan of all things mexican, loved it.

It's easy. Try it!

Your mouth and your husband will thank you.

Annnnnnd this is what I had for lunch:
Today isn't the best appetite day for me.
I didn't sleep well and when I don't sleep well, my blah-ness increases.
So Cocoa Krispies it is for the next few meals.
Grow, baby, grow!

Happy Eating Everyone!

  1. uh. YUM. You are so good. I'm scared of pork. I never really make it. Pork chops like three times a year, and every so often I'll buy a pork roast and throw it in the crock pot and make BBQ. Maybe you can teach me to do pork. Also, thanks for the b-day card. It made me smile :)
