Odds n’ Ends

She found it!!  Kathie’s Friday Favorites found the site I saw briefly when surfing for prior inaugural information and then could no longer locate.  One can read every inaugural address ever given!  I love this site.  =)  Thanks Kathie.  Thus Tuesday’s word of the day, vicissitude.  My coworker just showed me this one.

In today’s surfing I found the following recipes that I want to try: lima bean hummus and the following recipe from Nourishing Traditions:

Black Bean and Pineapple  Salsa

    3 cups of cooked black beans
    1 pineapple, cored, peeled and cut into small chunks
    1 large bunch of cilantro, stemmed and coarsely chopped
    1 red onion (half to whole), finely chopped
    3 garlic cloves, finely minced
    3 limes, juiced (or more if desired)
    2 teaspoons sea salt
    1/4-1/2 cup of finely minced anaheim pepper (This is a very mild pepper, you can use a spicier one for more kick, seeding your peppers will make them more mild).

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, using the smaller amount of pepper and onion. Gently mix together, and then taste test. Add pepper and and onion to taste, and more salt and lime juice, if desired. And serve! Just note that you will need to adjust the flavors again if you refrigerate for very long as the beans start soaking up some of the flavor. Keep an extra lime to sprinkle on later, if you won’t be serving right away.
