  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup corn kernels, frozen, canned or roasted

  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and diced
  • Juice of 1 lime

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and jalapeno, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

SEW GOOD SANGRIA

This past weekend my sewing group had a zipper workshop to review techniques as we prepare our spring/summer collections.  Since this was an all morning workshop, we decided to bring breakfast refreshments.  I brought sangria and blinged out the wine glasses for everyone.   Sometimes sewing can be stressful when your creative thoughts are blur, so the ladies we happy to have a glass to sit by their machines as we worked.  By then end of the workshop…well lets just say we may need to retake this zipper workshop….LOL
