I love having him home, but I've definitely felt the need to expand my recipe box. We've also turned a major corner as far as trying to eat food that is a lot better for us, more organic veggies, less random bad for you things, etc.
I randomly found this recipe on "Pinch of Yum" and last week it fed us so well. I made the Mexican Casserole with hopes for it to be yummy and healthy.. but it was genuinely so delicious! A small portion left me feeling extremely full (because of the protein the beans bring!) but not a yucky full. Just a happy one. :)

Ben LOVED this recipe, and I happened to make it on a night that was busy for my in-laws, so they both stopped by at different times to grab a piece. It made me so happy for everyone to get their nourishment from something delicious and healthy. We actually ate it the next night too (something we don't often do) and Ben took a large piece to work for the rest of the week. It was just an overall success... and a recipe that comes out on the cheaper side because it's a vegetarian dish. And gluten free! I feel like it would be really good for entertaining. Okay, I'm done declaring my love for this Mexican Casserole.
