Rice & Beans = Love

Posted Jun 17 2010 4:07pm

After tackling two new recipes this week ( Chana Masala & Bean & Squash Enchiladas ), I was in the mood for something quick & easy.

Rice & beans!! They were made for each other after all. :)

Spanish rice topped with black beans, corn, salsa, and jalapeno slices. Couldn’t be simpler. :)

Of course I immediately ruined the beauty and mixed it all together in to one big rice-bowl mess! :)

Eating rice & beans always takes me back to the summer of 2004, when I lived here:

In a place where Oreo’s were magic.

And all there was to do was play baseball.

The Dominican Republic. :)

My home for a summer. My home where I lived in a chicken coop & volunteered at a boys’ orphanage.

My home where we ate rice & beans every day, even for breakfast.

You might assume I grew sick of rice & beans- but exactly the opposite is true. I came to look forward to those rice & beans; every.single.day. There was no better meal to get you through a hot, exhausting day.

And now, every time I have rice & beans, my mind wanders off to these precious kiddos.

How could I not like rice & beans after that kind of love? :)
