*the love and affection of a good dog.
Sunday, May 24, 2009
You need: 2 cans black beans, 2 cans diced tomatoes, 1 can or frozen bag corn, 1 medium red onion (not pictured), 1/4 C cilantro, 1 large avocado, tobasco sauce, 1 lime, 1 tsp. cumin, 2 tsp. basil, 1 T. red wine vinegar, 1 T. olive oil, and salt and pepper.
Oh, it's SO GOOD! I like to serve it with tortilla chips. Some people just grab a fork and dig in.

Today was no exception.
When we were in the car, Cole exclaimed, "I gave my plastic fish to B today!"
I asked him what he traded it for.
Wait for it...
A plastic soda lid and 2 popcorn kernels.
I'm pretty sure someone got screwed on that deal.

Who's number 22? It's Sara from I'm the Mommy, That's Why!
Congrats, Sara! Sara is a SAHM of 2 adorable kiddos. Unfortunately, Sara's dad just passed away so I know she could use some well-wishes. If you have a sec, pop on over to her blog to wish her well. And Sara, when you have time, I need your address to get your goodies shipped to you!
Stay tuned for another Learning Curve giveaway next week! Want a peak? You know you do!
