I am so glad I discovered these "Monday Made It" link-ups with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics. I found myself actually looking forward to Monday! was a strange feeling...

Monday Made It 1
It was kind of a slow week.
Button 1
...much like last week, I spent a lot of time "making" myself relax. I "made" my way through quite a few books on my summer reading list.  Looking for Alaska by John Green and Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walters were my favorites this week. go. read.

yummm. I kind of hate raw peppers and onion. UNLESS, they are in this delicious Black Bean and Corn Salsa. My bestest friend introduced me to this stuff last summer, and I am slightly addicted. (I really have no idea where she came up with the recipe, but you can find it [here] if you want to pin it.)

The best part: It is incredibly simple to make. 

1 can of corn, drained
1 can of black beans, drained 
1 small white onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp apple cider vinegar

That is it! Combine, stir, enjoy, become addicted. 

...I'll be back next week!
