But my salad was delish, friends!! Really. So good.
See for yourself...
Well, hold on a second. First of all, I made this black bean dip last night and it was GOOD!
I wanted to simply dip some tortilla wrap in it for a snack last night. So tasty!
This dip was so easy...clearly.
Easy Black Bean Dip
1 can black beans, drained and washed well
2 T. water
2 T. of the canned bean juice
juice of 1 lemon
dash black pepper
dash onion powder
dash garlic powder
dash cayenne pepper
Blend all ingredients together in a food processor, blender, or mini-food processor until smooth. Taste until desired spice and flavor.
Enjoy with tortilla chips, wraps, Naan crackers or just your fingers.
Or on this salad...
I was feeling creative, what can I say? And yes. that would be a medium sized Tupperware bowl that I ate it out of. Quick and efficient. Or just tired and lazy.
Can you guess what's in it there??
Okay. I'll tell ya.
- 1 cucumber, quartered
- a handful of spinach leaves
- a handful of shredded cheddar cheese
- a handful of shredded carrots
- about 3-4 T. of the bean dip
- a generous pour of light balsamic Italian vinaigrette
- black pepper
I know it doesn't look too pretty and the ingredients sound a little out of whack, but trust me on this. The flavors really marry well together. I think what makes it is the black bean dip and its spiciness. Yum!
That was dinner. and then for some reason I was in the mood for my Skinny Girl Margarita. On the rocks, no salt.
She hit the spot after a crappy Monday for sure.
I wanted to end this crappy Monday on a fun note! Want to play a game? Sure ya do!
I call it:
Name All The Products You Can In My Unorganized And Slightly Bendy Pantry!!
Some things are obvious and this has actually looked worse. Give it a go!!
Enjoy the rest of this ugly Monday, unless you live in Hawaii or Jamaica.
