Black Bean Salad

The house has been de-Halloweened. We brought out our Thanksgiving decor and I really love this season more and more. A time for our family to focus on thankfulness which I believe is the key to happiness. 
I will have to share all the changes that were made when I mentioned I wanted to move a couch to the lineman. He is a sick man. He wears me out. He started moving things all over. I just don't have the energy he does. Sure wish I did.


I am trying to prepare more healthy options for lunches. Made a big batch of black bean salad as a healthy salad for all the lunch boxes I prepare daily. It is so pretty. You can find the recipe on the salad section of my recipe page.

Just popping in to see what you're up to. The salad looks great. I love Thanksgiving too. It's one of those things I always enforced with my kids....MUST celebrate TG and then Christmas! Sadly, it gets looked over now days.

mmmm... that salad looks good.

I had to move furniture a little over a week ago. We had a cold snap and actually got to use the wood stove for that weekend. So Winter arrangement was necessary before firing up!

Have a great week. Pat
