Revenge + My Go-To Easy Dinner

hi guys! happy wednesday! Today was another busy, but good, day at the office. I started the day with a 5 mile run on the treadmill with an average 8:15 pace. I don’t typically mind running on treadmills, especially when I have an episode of “Revenge” to catch up on! I didn’t finish it so as soon as I finish this post, I’m pulling it up on Hulu Plus!

Today my friend Tasha and I went to The Basil Leaf Thai & Sushi Restaurant. The basil fried rice was awesome. And a HUGE portion.

IMAG0287But both sushi rolls I got were terrible. Seriously so bland. I’ve never tasted blander sushi in my life. Bummer.

But tonight, I have something that is never bland to look forward to for dinner. Tacos! Well, if I don’t ruin my dinner first with this bread. If you’re local and gluten-free (or even if you’re not), buy this Three Sisters Artisan Bakery Gluten Free Teff Bread. It’s so good!! Especially toasted with a little butter. (I bought it at Whole Foods.)


Anyway, I digress. I seriously love bean tacos in crunchy shells, especially when they’re made with Rancho Gordo beans. Tacos are my go-to meal when I don’t feel like cooking or nothing sounds good. And now I’ve officially said “taco” so many times that it sounds like a really weird word. 🙂

Alright, time to chop some lettuce and tomatoes and then watch the end of “Revenge.”

What’s your go-to easy dinner meal?

My go-to meal is probably eggs. I always seem to go to them for lunch these days when I’m pressed for time and don’t feel like putting too much energy into anything else.

My go-to meal is roasted veggies tossed spaghetti. I always seem to have a ton of vegetables going to waste in my fridge and it’s an easy way to use a bunch at once.

I WAS hooked on Revenge until Hulu Plus took down all the first season episodes. I was so bummed that I emailed their support team. They informed me that their license only allows them to carry the current season… so if I start in the second season, will I be able to follow along? Or do I need to track down the rest of the first season?


3 Teri October 29, 2012 at

Ummm I think you’ll be able to follow along. They do a number of flash backs!

I am totally hooked on Revenge too – I’m loving this new season!

My go-to dinner right now is quesadillas. I love a pumpkin/caramelized veggie combo or an breakfast for dinner egg/veg combo!


5 Teri October 29, 2012 at

omg, pumpkin quesadilla??? that sounds incredible. do you still put cheddar cheese in there?


6 Andrea@Vegvacious October 29, 2012 at

Cheddar or a little mozza works well! Cheese is a must 🙂

Love Revenge & need to get caught up on the last episode too. However, every single week I get so worked up when “Emily” has scenes with Jack. In my mind I’m screaming “JUST TELL HIM YOU’RE AMANDA!!” Especially when they were losing Sammy. 🙁


8 Teri October 29, 2012 at

hahahaha! YES! I think that all the time too!

That teff bread looks so good, too bad I’m not local! I haven’t even seen teff or teff flour for sale locally, and we have a really good co-op. Now I’m curious about it. Our go-to meal is canned beans combined with canned corn, whatever veggies are convenient to chop and toss in (usually bell peppers or other peppers if we have them) and a little hot sauce.

my go-to meal is scrambled eggs. It’s not that I’m a huge fan of eggs but they are so easy, you can spice them up if you want, and they’re filling!


11 Teri October 29, 2012 at

I always forget about eggs!!


12 SuzanneU October 26, 2012 at

My go to meal is always salad. We always have an avacado and salad mixings in the fridge. May be a weird salad sometimes…

Love revenge but the narrative is getting a bit tiresome.


13 Teri October 29, 2012 at

I was thinking the same thing about the narrative after watching the last episode. :/
