Sometimes all we need is a fast and simple dinner after a long and tiring day. Derek and I've had a lot on our plates recently and we've been on the go almost everyday from morning 'til night. By the time I get home at night I am whipped!!! Last night was one of those nights. I worked all day, had an appointment after work and then I had to hitch a ride home from my grandma (yep, still no vehicle!).
By the time I got home, let the dogs out and got them fed, I was in no mood for a big elaborate dinner. It was a perfect night for something easy, but I didn't want to sacrifice health for ease. Lucky for me, I found a kick-butt deal on avocados this weekend and got 5 for $3.29. I'd also picked up a guacamole mix by Simply Organic.
All I needed was 2 cups of chopped avocados, which I mashed with the seasoning. The result was incredible - I absolutely loved the flavour of this guacamole and the fact that the ingredients are organic is definitely an added bonus.
While the guac was 'resting' in the fridge, I stirfried up a bunch of veggies - I used sweet onion, peppers, zucchini, garlic, crimini mushrooms, celery and a tomato. I stirfried my veggies with some chili powder, cumin, sea salt and some crushed chili peppers. I served the veggie mixture on top of 1/2 a cup of brown rice and finished it off with a big ol' scoop of guacamole.
Do you love guacamole - do you buy store bought, a mix or make yours from scratch?
What's your favourite easy weekday meal?
Have a great day my friends,
