In the fridge: a couple cups cooked leftover brown rice. About a cup of tomato puree. The end of a Greek yogurt container. Odds and ends of two big squashes. Half a red onion. A lot of hot peppers from the CSA. Some sad looking cilantro. Some dubious ham lunchmeat. And the memory of a chimichurri fajitas recipe you saw somewhere where there was zucchini in the fajitas (turns out it was in “Almost Meatless”, though I didn’t follow their recipe precisely).
Add about a half pound steak from the freezer, some pantry staples and a few random tortillas (white and wheat), and I had chimichurri fajitas and makeshift Mexican rice (recipe to follow). Open a can of refried beans and dinner was served.
