My Lunch

I made spring rolls with lettuce and pea pods. It was so good. I originally made pulled pork so I could put it in the freezer and pull it out when I was being lazy but it was way too good to set aside.

Stuffed sweet potato w/ black bean mango salsa

Danielle and I had our first roommate dinner in our new house 🙂 We made Stuffed sweet potato w/ black bean mango salsa. It was really good. Fast to make and super cheap. 5 bucks for four servings. Not to mention it is quite healthy. Next time I am going to put in half or no seeds from the jalapeño because it was a bit too spicy for me.

Found on
5 dollar dinners

I microwaved the sweet potatoes for 5 min because I was starving. Then I steam baked them for 30mins.

We also added some avocados on top.
