after Orin was born, we were showered with meals from friends and I can’t tell you how nice it was not to have to think about cooking. seriously – I hardly cooked one meal for the first month of Orin’s life! our friends brought all kinds of vegetarian meals: burritos, soup, pizza, and my favorite – this black bean quinoa chili. it’s SO easy, SO good and makes a TON. it may be my go-to meal for those lazy cooking days. try it – it’s a must!
