We're back in action! For now, I suppose. Apparently I'm not very good at keeping up with this thing, so we'll see how long this lasts.
I start a new job tomorrow, and I'm extremely excited. In my excitement, I did a meal plan for the week, which I haven't done since, oh, October. This means I have lunches planned for the rest of the week. Usually if I have a plan like this, I stick to it, so I might go on a week-long blogging binge. I have no idea what my motivation will look like next week.
I made this week's meal plan by looking up the one I did for this week last year. I modified it a little bit, and noticed that vegan coffee cake was in a few of the lunches I packed. Since I didn't happen to make that this week, and since I wanted something a little healthier, I decided to finally try black bean brownies. I used this recipe, minus the chocolate chips, plus probably a teaspoon of baking soda, and they turned out fantastically! They're not super fudgy, but they have great texture and flavor, and Chip actually likes them. I was seriously shocked. Because really. Beans + chocolate = delicious? I wasn't so sure beforehand, but now I think I'll be making these again.
