Yesterday, I wanted a chicken wrap for lunch, but the only chicken breast we had was frozen solid. Hmm, what to use for protein? I looked around in my cabinet and found this…

The other day, Veggiegirl and I were talking beans, and I decided to pick some up while at Trader Joe’s. I don’t often buy beans as they sometimes cause me stomach distress, but I do love refried beans on occasion. In fact, back in my vegetarian days, I often ate bean burritos sans cheese from Taco Bell. So, yesterday, I decided to create my own version, but with cheese

Looks cheesy, no? I simply filled 1 warmed La Tortilla Factory tortilla with 1/4 cup refried beans and humnut sauce made with 1 heaping spoonful of hummus, 1 TBSP nutritional yeast, a squirt of Beaver’s Sweet Hot Mustard, and a bit of water to thin. This was so good that last night when CD and I went to Trader Joe’s to pick up few things, I threw 2 more cans of beans in the cart.

Today’s lunch was a Mexican pizza…

Same concept as above, I just didn’t roll it up. This would have been excellent with some chopped avocado. Next time for sure!

Did anyone fall for any good April Fool’s Day jokes? I did. CD brought these to me when he come for lunch yesterday, Look Heather Pie, I bought you flowers…

Ha ha, April Fools. Someone sent them to our office, and my boss said I could bring them home to you. Oh well, it’s that thought that counts, right? Thanks CD! :)
