Leftover’s Burrito

Recipe Wednesday! Today we have a burrito made with leftovers. I always have some rice in the fridge and I had some left over roasted eggplant and onions from the night before. To start off I wanted to freshen things up and give a slight flavor change. I started off by chopping some jalapeno, yellow bell pepper, and garlic. I add the peppers to a pan with a little coconut oil and let them cook a little. I wanted to still have some bite though. Then I added the garlic and leftover eggplant and onions to the pan. I added a little water and let everything get to know each other and heat up. While this was going on I put some of my rice in a small pot with some water to re-hydrate it and bring it back to life. I had some leftover sliced radish and green onions from the night before also. I sliced some more of each though so I would have more. I had already opened a can of black beans by now also. I just scoop them out of the can with a slotted spoon. After everything was heated I Layered it on the tortilla, add hot sauce, and rolled it up tight. I had enough for two burritos and after I made  both I wiped the pan out and add a little more oil. I placed the burrito in the pan seam side down once the pan heated up. Let that side get crisp then flipped it over. I love doing this to burritos. I just sliced them on the bias and enjoyed!

I’ve been absent.

I’ve been absent for awhile. I started another 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. I started that on January 1st and have been focusing on that. You can check out my art blog to see all the paintings so far. My theme is floral and I love doing them. I’m working in acrylics. I started the challenge out with little canvas’s then switched to 140 lb watercolor paper when I ran out. The watercolor paper works better than I thought it would, so I decided to stick with it for the rest of the challenge. Once the challenge is over I’ll be posting them for sale on my Etsy shop. This is going to be the year of art for sure! I’ll be really working on getting my shop going good and putting work out there. I’ll be doing postcards, little painted canvas magnets, big pieces, etc. I’m going to be putting out a lot of work! Selling originals and prints.

Other non art related stuff that’s going on. I’ve been thrifting several times since my last post. I’ve gotten several neat things I need to post about and I will eventually. I’ve gotten a few new plants also. Two were Christmas presents and one was a birthday present. My birthday was January 2nd and I hit the big 3-0! Not as horrible as I thought it would be. I just don’t know where the years have gone and I don’t feel as accomplished as I thought I would be by now. That’s OK thought because it happens and you can’t change that. I’m just working on the present to make the future awesome! I might be a home owner soon also which would be amazing! I’m hoping everything falls together so I can get the house. I’m sure there’s some other stuff I could talk about, but I’m drawing a blank right now.

Here’s a link to my art shop and art blog. The art shop doesn’t have anything posted in it right now. I just switched back over to doing Etsy from another site, so I’m waiting for the challenge to be over. I won’t be doing daily paintings and can focus on it better.

New Opportunity.

Last week I received a message from someone at a new blogging site called My Trending Stories. They had came across my blog and were interested in me being a contributor. We exchanged messages for a couple days. I wanted to get a better feel for them before I said yes. I decided it would be a good decision on my part in getting my name out there and said yes. I got my bio set up and posted my first article. I’ll be posting a second one here soon. I really like the set up of this new site, but I will still be posting here also. Be sure to go check out my posts there because I’ll be posting stuff besides art stuff. I really only post about my pieces on this site. While your on My Trending Stories check out other authors articles. There’s lots of interesting articles on there.

Here’s the link to my profile where you can also get to my articles. Be sure to give me a follow so you can keep up with what I post.
