I’m thrilled to be here today guest posting for Jen. I stumbled upon Jen’s blog a few months ago and I have been a huge fan of her blog ever since. Jen’s home is full of inspiration (totally love her kitchen cabinet make-over), she has great recipes and her boys are pretty cute too! I am very envious of her mad painting skills when it comes to furniture she has found.
A little about me . . . . . I’m a thirty-something mom of two and wife to my husband of almost nine years. I spend my days working as a lawyer which keeps me very busy! When I am not at work, you can find me with my two beautiful kids beside me. I’m a wanna-be Martha Stewart (I could do without the jail stint), a compulsive organizer, list maker, and Pottery Barn lover. I love to read blogs although admittedly they fill my head with ideas and crafts that I keep track of on Pinterest. (I’ve been known to re-organize my boards on there!) I blog about many things like our life experiences, our home, projects, crafts, and sometimes just our ordinary days at home.
Today I am sharing a simple side dish. We recently had a Mexican theme get-together at our house and served the following side dish. It’s easy (which is key for me!) and very tasty. We served this with fajitas, black rice and beans, taco mac & cheese and a salad. It was a huge hit (as was our themed night – so much fun)! Oh, and you cannot forget the margaritas and/or sangria!
2 15 oz oz cans black beans, rinsed
1 17 oz can whole kernel corn, drained
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 large avocado, diced
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
4 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well. Keep chilled until serving.
I would love to have you pop on over to my blog and say hi.
Thanks so much for having me Jen!!
