Here's a couple of shots of my mom's kitchen valance and cappuccino tiers I bought her as a surprise. She had the same lacy tiers for many moons, so I thought it would be fun to put these up while she was asleep. I loved them immediately because they were dark and primitive and yet flouncy.
And, ta-da! My version of the black bean salsa recipe I got from my dear friend this weekend at her scrap booking party.
You need a dishpan size bowl.... HUGE... You'll see why!
Drain and rinse:
2 cans black beans
1 can black eyed peas
1 can yellow corn
1 can white shoe peg corn
1 can sliced black olives
1 can green chilies
Chop as finely as you wish:
1 red onion
1 green pepper
2 ribs celery
1 bunch scallions
3-5 firm red tomatoes. I used 5 Romas
1 tbsp. minced garlic
2 seedless jalapeno peppers . I left these out
1/2 to 1 bottle Italian salad dressing. I used light with no sugar added.
Mix all and chill. Gets better and better. I had some plain, some standing in open refrigerator, and some with cottage cheese... Uh.... just as with the awards, I cannot choose a winner! haha... It's delish, and I believe really healthy.?????
