Okay you guys… I am a little embarrassed to actually be posting this “recipe”. It’s not that I’m embarrassed about what I’m eating. It’s just… it’s… it’s just such an embarrassingly simple college-esque meal! It sure did hit the spot, though!
Low Country Skillet Supper
– 1/4 Yellow Onion, chopped
– 1/2 Carrot, chopped
– 1 clove Garlic, minced
– 1 can Great Northern Beans, drained and rinsed
– 1/2 bottle BBQ Sauce (we used a Smoky Maple flavor)
– 1/8 tsp Chili Powder
– 1/4 tsp Cumin
– 1/2 tsp Paprika
In a medium skillet, saute onion and carrot until translucent and soft.
Add garlic and saute about 45 seconds until fragrant.
Add Beans, BBQ Sauce, and spices, reduce heat to medium-low and allow to cook until heated through.
We ate our BBQ Bean-y goodness atop a bed of steamed spinach, steamed broccoli, and some heated frozen mixed veggies. Our side was Kabocha Squash “Fries”. GF Guy is officially ADDICTED, and I LOVE it!
In random, “no one really cares” news:
I didn’t feel like working out this morning, so I decided to hit the gym after work. To ensure I didn’t “wuss out”, I packed my gym clothes, changed into them before I left the office, and went straight there. I logged a good 13 sweaty miles on the bike before heading home to my man! It felt awesome to work out after work. I just might have to do it more often!
