Yesterday I decided to be a nice girlfriend and make z a dinner that he could just put in the oven when got home!
On the menu: Mexi-Lasagna! I had originally thought about making enchiladas but decided it might be too time consuming for my busy schedule (aka homework and swimming laps).
First step: Poach chicken – this is the easiest way for me to make chicken. It’s very hands off and apparently the chicken is always cooked properly!
Next step: Sauté the farmer’s market onions with olive oil and spices.
Next step: Drain and rinse a can of black beans.
Next step: Open a can of diced green chiles.
Next step: Combine the above ingredients.
Next step: Open a can of red enchilada sauce and pour some in the bottom of your baking dish.
The fun step: Start layering!
Sauce, tortilla, chicken, black bean mixture, more sauce, cheese, repeat!
I covered the final dish and put it in the fridge with instructions for z!
I got a text in class from z saying that it was pretty delicious! When I got home, he surprised me by telling me he had taken pictures of the final product! He sure knows the way into a food bloggers heart…
Because I had to pick up ingredients for the “lasagna” I also grabbed a few other things…
…like LOTS of seltzer water. I’m addicted.
Everyone loves a good deal, right? Check out this awesome deal I found while at the store:
$12.05 for a mixed Blue Moon 12-pack! A regular 12-pack is $17.99 (as you can see on the left). SCORE!

Earlier this week we made roasted green beans and onions from z’s market trip!
z had steak strips!
I had a spicy chk’n patty.
I like that we can eat dinner together during the week! It’s really nice! p.s. look at my daisies! Thanks z <3
This was a long post with too many pictures.
Now I gotta go do something with my day…like go to Borders. ;)
