Cool Beans (and Tortillas and Veggies)
The Chef: Colleen
The Menu: Our favorite office manager, whose Monday meals are always eagerly anticipated, was feeling a little under the weather today, so Colleen graciously offered to take over kitchen duties. She made us all feel a little healthier with her hearty offering that began with a perfectly steamed flour tortilla topped with a layer of fresh guacamole, a spoonful of hearty black beans, and a generous helping of grilled broccoli, squash, bell peppers, and zucchini. On the side? A vibrant greens-and-tomotoes salad decorated with a few slivers of Dr. Cow cheese. Yum!
The Goods: Some of us are feeling out of sorts today, and the rest of us are recuperating from a jet-setting weekend punctuated by indulgent meals at various LA veg restaurants, bottomless Cosmopolitans, and lack of sleep, so a simple, healthy meal was just what the doctor ordered.
