Is anyone else just dead tired by the time the weekend rolls around? I stayed up until way to late/early last night putting together valentines and goodies for my primary class so that we could make valentines to send to the missionaries in our ward. Night is just when I get things done. My poor roommates in college would find me scrubbing floors and cleaning bathrooms especially when it was crunch time in school . . . not much has changed . . . except for the fact that I have superman as a husband who knows how to do laundry like it is no ones business, is always helping out in the kitchen and who when dusting tackles the places that I don't get to quite as often as I should. (ignore that last part mom!)
Anywho today was a little piece of heaven because we just hung out, watched a great movie and dozed on and off! A complete opposite for what tomorrow holds, but hey I will take a little R&R when I can get it! Speaking of a little piece of heaven . . . cowboy caviar as we so call it in my fam is something that tastes like it came straight from heaven! My mom always makes a huge batch when she makes it and it always results in at least 5-7 women circled around it eating in a total frenzy (ladies you know this to be true . . . we love munching!) So if you have never tried it (I know their are a million variations) you totally must! It is a delight!
1 14 oz can Petite diced Tomatoes, with juice
1 can Black Beans, or Black Eyed Peas, drained
1 bag Frozen Sweet Corn
1/2 Bottle Zesty Italian Dressing
3 Avocados, diced
3-4 Green Onions, diced
1/4 cup Cilantro, chopped
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1. Drain the beans and mix with the tomatoes, corn, garlic powder, cilantro and Italian dressing. Refrigerate until serving. Add avocados in just before serving. I like to squeeze fresh lime juice over it right before serving too!
This is awesome with tortilla chips but also great on salads or tacos too!
