In the kitchen
The curtains I made. Super easy after a bit of measuring. I'm slowly making my way to a bistro look.
I have pictures of steaming cups of coffee and capuccino on the wall. This hardware is supposed represent the steam coming from the cups.
Part of tonight's dinner. Yumm, black bean and avocado salsa. My own version.
Black Bean and Avocado Salsa
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 avocado, diced
1/4 c chopped onion
2 scapes, chopped (use 1-2 cloves minced fresh garlic if scapes are not in season)
4 T chopped fresh basil
Mix the above ingredients together and drizzle mixture with a little bit of olive oil (1-2 T) Serve with chips and prepare to fall in love with this salsa.
Scapes are the tops of garlic and they're only available for a couple weeks in the spring before the harvest. They have a peppery garlic taste.
