143.8…Mexican Bean Salad
One of my favorite summer recipes is my Mexican Bean Salad. Almost every time I barbeque, it’s one of my side dishes. It makes a lot and the leftovers taste great!

I love to serve the Mexican Bean Salad with my Creamy Cole Slaw. They go so well together!
Tuesday night was Bunco at Candace’s house.
I hit up the appetizers immediately, of course!
After mingling for a bit, it was time for dinner. Candace made an incredible salad bar!
All the salad dressings were homemade. I loaded my plate full of salad and all the fixings plus Candace’s homemade ranch dressing.
This was plate one of two. So delicious!
Thank you Candace for such a fabulous time!!
Yesterday morning I had scrambled egg beaters with salsa and asparagus for breakfast.
See the bottle of Cholula hot sauce in the upper left corner? You know I dump loads of that on my eggs. :)
I took the kids to school then grabbed a skinny vanilla latte at Starbucks for my drive to Los Angeles.
I spent the day with my mom helping her go through stuff at her house. She’s going to be moving soon so I’m helping her getting ready for that.
Lunch was a fabulous turkey and provolone sandwich at Jersey Mike’s.
Best sandwich ever.
We worked all day until we were beat. Dinner was at Hamburger Hamlet. I started with the wedge salad.
Followed by French onion soup. Mmmmmm!
We are going to get rolling with the clean up again soon and then I’m going back to San Diego after lunch. Enjoy your day!
How many times have you moved in your life? Too many to count.
