Meatless Dinner

Someone must’ve known I was feeling a little snacky the other night and finished off the granola that I made in about .24 seconds. Yeah, it was that good.

When I was preparing dinner last night I heard a knock on my door. “Delivery for Miss Alyssa?” “That’s meeeee!”

I immediately busted open the box.

Please excuse the sharp knife sticking out from the bags. Please also excuse the blurry picture as I was too excited to grab my camera and had to use my phone 🙂

Love Grown Granola sent me 8 bags of granola! Woohooo. Naturally, I tried all of them. I really thought chocolate would be my favorite – But I have to go with Sweet Cranberry Pecan with this company! I plopped down on the couch and ate it straight from the bag while complaining to Adam that we need a cleaning lady because the bathroom took me 3 1/2 hours to clean. He told me it should be motivation to look for a job… I guess he’s right so I’m off to search!

But first I have to share last nights dinner. I served Adam his first meatless dinner EVER. He is a huge meat and potatoes type of guy and I wasn’t sure how he was going to like it. I made Jenna’s Boyfriend approved Spicy Black Bean burgers.

I should note that Adam doesn’t even like beans in general so I’m not sure why I tried this meal out on him as his first… He ate it and said it was good but it just tasted like beans. I think he was just being difficult because he wants a steak dinner… I on the other hand thought it was delicious! The avocado and spiciness of the burger made the perfect combination. I have leftovers that I will be enjoying for lunch on a salad today 🙂

Ok, now back to that job search so I can get a cleaning lady!!

QUESTIONS: What is a good meatless meal to try out on your meat loving boyfriend??
