Bowl of Deliciousness

Yayyyyyyyyyy for almost Friday :) Today was a super busy day at work which = tons of coffee and not enough eating! By the time I left work, I was super hungry and hyper haha. I had a snack and did a bit of cleaning before heading out to teach Body Step.

For din din tonight, I made a bowl of deliciousness.

Ingredients
3/4 lb beef (or chicken or fake meat- whatever you like ;)
Olive oil
32 oz beef broth (or chicken or vegetable)
Rosemary, Thyme, pepper (or other desired spices)
3/4 cup orzo
frozen peas and corn (or fresh veggies)

Directions
Place a little olive oil and chopped up beef (or other meat choice) in a large pot. Cook until meat is no longer pink. Add broth, spices and orzo. Bring to a boil and then cook until orzo is tender (give it a taste!). Add in veggies and cook until broth has been almost completely absorbed. Enjoy! Top with a little cheese for some extra excitement.


What are you up to this weekend? I am hoping to finish planning my sisters baby shower (THANK YOU so so much for all the awesome ideas- I am totally using a few of them!), maybe a little shopping for myself, having friends over for dinner, and relaxing!

ORZO! Why do I never think to eat that?!

My weekend is pretty much centered on eating so far. Maybe I can find orzo on the menu. :)

That IS a bowl of deliciousness! Hope your day today is not so crazy. Sometimes those days are okay, though, because they go by supah fast. :-)

I have to (okay want to) go shopping, too. I want spring clothes! Hope you have a relaxing weekend!

That bowl does like great- How is Josh?

I think we decided on Charleston... its closer than HHI and will be warmer than more northern beaches..

Danielle said...

Big fan of one-bowl meals. I am determined to get off the computer this weekend. I need to take a break and do some reading. Had a lot of articles to write this week and I'm tired of looking at the screen! :)

I'm sure I will do some cooking this weekend. I need to make something with strawberries! Tonight, I'm supposed to go to a friend's birthday party at a lounge here in DC. It should be fun!

What is fake meat?

Ben was sick all week, so we're taking it easy. I hope Josh is better! We had a party to go to tonight but it's a luau and it's 40 degrees and raining down here...someone explain that logic to me.
