Mr. Barefoot has been out of town for, essentially, the last month. This kind of stinks, because he was doing all the cooking this semester and surprisingly, I liked it that way. I got used to it. So now, I'm living like I lived in college - I get home, stare at my kitchen, and make food that comes in a box. I haven't had time to go grocery shopping, so I'm now down to my pantry and concerned about scurvy.
Tonight, I had my last law school class, and I threw something in the crockpot before I left so I didn't have to stand up and cook (I ran a half marathon over the weekend and the doctor no longer recommends standing.) I've been using my small crockpot as a rice cooker lately and it's great.
Crockpot black beans and rice:
1.) Put 1 cup rice, 1 can black beans, and 1.5 cups water in a crockpot.
2.) Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried onion, oregano, cumin, and a little chilli powder.
3.) Plug in crockpot. Cook on low for 2-2.5 hours.
4.) Eat (garnished with cheese, if you are high maintenance). Marvel at how easy it is to cook a healthy, cheap meal for yourself while you are at tax class.
