Hey Guys. Happy Monday!Christmas is but a mere week away and I think I’m all set. Wait, how many siblings do I have again? I kid, I kid. But this Christmas is a little different for me. It’s my first one not being in school. Translation: goodbye 3-week long winter breaks and hello holiday parties. I guess this is what adulthood feels like. I’m not mad at it lol.
Happy Monday Guys!I went to Trader Joe’s a month or so ago, and close by was a restaurant I’d heard about called MetroFresh. I’m not in the area often so I thought about checking them out. When I looked up their menu online one thing caught my eye – a Jamaican jerk black bean coconut soup. Typically I’m not a black bean soup person but this one sounded so good. You know what else caught my eye? The $6 price tag for one cup. Craziness. I could buy all the ingredients I’d need to make the soup for that price and have leftovers for the week. I chose that route instead and I’m so glad that I did. I can confidently say that this is the best black bean soup I’ve ever had. It’s a little spicy with tons of flavor and hints of coconut and lime. I ate this with some boiled plantain for a flavorful and healthy, island-inspired meal.
