All Good Things I ate today!

This chocolate is really delicious! I got this Icelandic Chocolate delight at Whole Foods the other day and its almost gone! The company, Noi Sirius is based out of Reykjavik and has been making this chocolate since 1933. I normally like darker chocolate than this, but its about as close to "milk chocolate" that I can manage. It is sweet and creamy and has a really rich vanilla flavor and would also be really good for baking!

I wanted to introduce BIG MAMMA. She has been continuous supplying Mike and I with a delicious Kombucha brew for months and she is getting HUGE!!!! She might be 4" thick! AWESOME. We are using Puerh, a really earthy tea, and it tastes amazing.

See what I mean!?

Oh and breakfast! Todays recipe, though totally simple, is really delicious and nutritious!

Gallo Pinto

-1 yellow onion
-6 cloves garlic
-1 jalapeno pepper
1-2 Tbs olive oil
-1 can of black beans
-1-2 Tbs Chili Powder
-1 cup Brown Rice
-Salt and Pepper

Start by boiling 2 cups of water with 1 cup of rice and a pinch of salt. In a pan, caramelize 1 yellow onion chopped in some olive oil, 5-10 minutes. Add 6 minced cloves of garlic and 1 minced jalapeno pepper and let cook for another 5 minutes or until the garlic starts to brown. Add 1 can of black beans, salt and pepper to taste and 1-2 tablespoons of Chili powder. Let this cook until the beans are hot! When the rice is done (about 20 minutes) add them to the beans and eat up.
