Rice Bowl for One

I am not a big fast food eater, but one thing I love is RICE BOWLS! Today for lunch I decide to make healthier alternative to Jack In the Box’s “Rice Bowls”.

I layered the bottom  with some brown sticky rice and topped it off with the following:

  • black beans
  • corn
  • red peppers
  • cilantro
  • tomatoes
  • onions
  • lime juice

I also had some organic blue corn chips for major dipping!

Tonight I am staying HOME! I have some major catching up and planning to do. We are throwing a TOCOBERFEST Party at our house on Friday night, and I need to set the menu.

We will have a Taco Bar of course and some Pumpkin Ale :). All I need is some good baking ideas???? This is our first time throwing a party like this and I hope to make it a yearly tradition, a time to have fun and WELCOME the FALL!

We still have a pumpkin that needs CARVING TOO!!!!

Do you carve pumpkins? Do you make faces or other crazy designs???

Whole foods came out with a pumpkin chocolate brownie recipe you should try! Maybe even add a little chili to perk it up

That lunch looks awesome!

I've never carved a pumpkin! We don't celebrate halloween though, so it's just not a part of our culture :)

Yumo! Great lunch!
And yes, we totally carve pumpkins still! It just seems so fall-like! Good luck with the party planning! :)

YUM! I usually find that fast food favorites made at home are so much tastier than the drive thru option. Love it!

This bowl looks spectacular. I love eating just about anything out of a bowl. There is something about piling your food into one big mess that makes every single bite heavenly.

Tocoberfest sounds like such a BLAST! I wish I could join you, but instead, I will just wait in excitement for the recap! ;)

Have a great productive evening hun!
