My husband HATES commercials. I tolerate them. Some I do like. When I was at the gym yesterday I looked up and saw my favorite one. It is for Planters nuts. The girl has red hair and a unibrow. She is dressed nicely and she thinks she is ALL that! As she walks through the streets, men are falling all around her. Of course they are staring because of this huge unibrow (or maybe not)and she thinks it is her charisma, beauty and charm... and of course the cashews (I wanted to say nuts here but that just wouldn't be right!) that she rubs at all her pulse points. Of course, it's one of those things you have to see. Okay, go watch it here... a picture is a 1000 words. Oh and what really makes me laugh even harder is when she picks her panties out of her butt at the end. OMG, it's funny!
Okay, now wasn't that funny? Okay, I am a little "punch drunk" right now. Not enough sleep last night. Down right giddy and out of control.
*Update: Hey, guess who stopped by my blog, Christa Woomer, the Unibrow lady! Check out her site, she is ONE talented lady!
Anyway, this little throw together meal IS all that! It may not be as beautiful as a unibrow but it sure is tastey. It's a little cajun. Mainly it's about all I can manage these days when I seem to be doing too many other things!
RED BEANS, CHICKEN and RICE
Lori's Lipsmacking Original
1 can cooked kidney beans or pintos (I used two cups of some leftovers that I had soaked)
1 cup chicken cut up (yup, you guessed, leftover chicken souvlaki)
2 cups cooked rice (this was a leftover as well)
1 1/2 cups water
1 red pepper, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon cajun seasonings (I have one made up from Emerill's spice recipe)
s and p to taste
2 green onions chopped for garnish
Saute peppers and onions in about a tablespoon of olive oil until lightly golden. Add garlic, cook one minute more. Add water, cajun spice and beans. Let simmer until beans are super tender. If you have canned beans use less water and then simmer about 20 minutes or so. Add in rice and chicken at the end.
Sprinkle green onions over mixture and voila dinner is served.
