10 days of fun in Costa Rica when a friend visits!

Keeping You In Stitches

April 27th was a busy, busy day – picked up a friend from the U.S., Pat at 5 a.m.; finding nothing open for breakfast, we ended up coming home.  We really aren’t far from the airport, which is a good thing, because Mark was arriving home at 11:00 that same morning!

Food Chick tip of the day Part 2

Day two of a three part recipe…Black Bean and BACON salad!
1. Cut up raw bacon into 1/4 inch bite size pieces and pan fry.

2. Drain fat and remove bacon to a paper towel.
3. Using the same pan add 1 pint of halved cherry or grape tomatoes and cook for two to three minutes at medium heat.

4. Add one 16 ounce bag of frozen sweet corn and stir together for two minutes.

5. Meanwhile, drain and rinse one can of black beans. Add to pan, stir to incorporate and heat through for about 3 minutes.

6. Add bacon. Add fresh cilantro, salt and pepper to taste.

7. Can be served hot, room temperature or cold.

This is a great mix for a salad. Pictured here served hot over baby spinach and watercress!
