Outdoor Dining

One of my favorite things about this time of year, is being able to use our deck as a extension of our house. We especially love eating dinner out there. It's just so peaceful!

A week or so back, we had our first outdoor dinner of the year. It was pretty scrumptious, if I do say so myself! So I thought I'd toss the recipe up here for all to enjoy ♥


Southwestern Hash

2 cups diced potatoes
1 cup canned corn
1/2 cup black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp butter
Lawry's seasoning - to taste
Cheese of your choice, just to top

Put a bit of oil in a skillet and add in the potatoes (not too much, just enough to let them brown). Cook until they're starting to brown, then add the black beans and corn. I then added a bit of butter for extra flavor and moisture. Then to add some spice and flavor, I tossed in a few dashes of Lawry's seasoning. Oh, and if Ryan didn't hate them... I totally would have added some diced green peppers to this! If you can't tell, I totally made this up, and encourage everyone to make their own modifications so it can fit your personal taste.

We also had Quorn Southwestern Chik'n Wings. If you're a vegetarian, or just trying to eat healthier, I highly recommend Quorn's products. They taste fantastic and are low in calories and high in protein!


This meal goes fantastic with a good craft brew, if you're into that sort of thing ♥

oh your hash looks so yummy! We eat Quorn mince all the time but I'm not a big fan of a lot of their other products. I totally miss morning star farms, we don't have them in England and they're so good.

Me love me some craft beers, especially Fat Tire. ;) You should try Red Stripe, it's a Jamaican craft beer.
