So I had this whole post planned out in my head. I was going to write about how I kinda sorta feel normal but then other times, I remember what happened and life doesn’t feel normal at all. One of my kinda sorta normal things that I was going to talk about was how I was cooking and making good dinners. It was just going to be a little part of my post until I realized that my dinner was really, really good. And the not normal thing about it: it was a Paula Deen recipe and it was healthy! And I only had to modify it a little bit.
This was Paula Deen’s Southwestern Avocado and Black Bean Salad. I only made a few changes. Instead of lime juice, I used lemon, simply because I didn’t have lime juice. Secondly, I only used one can of black beans instead of two and thirdly, I omitted the cheese all together.
In the comments of the original recipe, someone said it clocked in at around 600 calories per serving. I think that with my changes, it’s got to bring it down a bit, right? (Say yes.)
Also, normal but not really: the amount of time a loaf of banana bread lasts in our house. Approximately two days.
Jason asked me if banana bread was the same as cake. I said it was made with whole wheat flour and probably had less sugar but yeah, kinda sorta.
