When I'm not caught with a tub of frosting you will find me neck deep swimming in this bean-corn pico salad... it has yet to be named in our family. My sister makes it for every occasion. My very ambitious goal this summer is to have everything in my garden to make it, besides the black beans. Which reminds me, I need to clean up our garden box and plan my starts asap. But since I can not keep a house plant alive we will see how this goes.
I just kinda make it with what I like and don't really measure things but here's a start to a recipe.
a small can of black beans rinsed and strained
16 oz of fresh corn on the cob or a bag of frozen corn
1 green pepper chopped
a bunch of cherry tomatoes chopped or large tomatoes chopped
avocado cut into bite size pieces
some cilantro chopped
a 1/4 cup of red vine vinegar
a couple tablespoons of olive oil & 2 t Cumin or to your liking
AND a bag of tortilla chips
Besides wanting to grow a garden we are doing our best keeping up with how fast our sprouts grow. Collin measures them on the wall and marks the date. Crazy to see the difference in the past year.
Last night we had our dear family over to celebrate Quincey's birthday! Wow, three years old. As cheesy as it sounds I truly feel blessed to be her mother. Knowing that God trusted me with her. Trusted me to 'lead her, guide her, walk beside her. Help her find the way. Teach her all that she must do to live with Him someday.' Love you! (based on the song I am a Child of God.)
PS If you need a laugh you should check out the video below. Or actually don't do it. Don't click on the link or press play because you actually really don't want to see this. It's pretty looney.
Just know I had nothing to do with it. :)
