Well, I don’t know about you, but I sat around eating like a total fatty over Thanksgiving. I’m talking all that and a family-size bag of chips fatty. I did manage to do some freezing cold runs around town; one with my bff, and one special one with my brother and sister-in-law (Go, Kim!!), but the eating…oh, the eating. Oh well, back on track now, and bringing you a recipe I plan to make soon! After finding out the hard way that quinoa is not couscous, I decided I enjoyed it nevertheless. Oh, and I adore Mexican food, so why not combine something I adore, and something I can pretty easily tolerate into one delicious-looking pot?
As always, I’m sending you over to the original blogger for the full recipe!
