What this means though is that even if I eat out for dinner, when I get home, I am cooking up a little something for my brown bag lunch the next day.
Tonight I was inspired by an Orzo Salad with Chickpea, Dill and Lemon from MyRecipes: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/orzo-salad-with-chickpeas-dill-lemon
I gathered up my ingredients and noticed white mold on my lemon. I thought about it. But I like my healthy stomach much better and decided not to chance it. Yes, normally you would think that the sight of mold itself would make me think twice. I guess I really wanted to follow the recipe as is. Instead I made the recipe my own and it turned into Orzo Salad with Chickpeas and Dill.
1 cup orzo
1 tbsp dill (I had dried in my pantry so I used that, if you have fresh, fabulous)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 can 19oz chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup feta cheese
Cook the orzo until al dente or to taste. Rinse with cold water. Mix orzo in a mixing bowl with the dill, olive oil and chickpeas. Add the feta cheese.
Enjoy the light refreshing Orzo Salad with simple ingredients.
