GU - I'm not a fan of beans, but I love black beans (they are healthier than some other beans, too!). Just try a few things once, to get your bearings, and then if you odn't like it, give it a second chance a little while later. Sometimes its an acquired taste...like beer.
On the subject of salsas...I found the best salsa in the WORLD! And I convieniently forgot the name, but its amazing! Its a black bean and corn salsa, not hot at all (but that can be fixed), but OMG its practically a meal and delicious. I think you can order it online at www.meierranchfoods.com
or something like that. I can't EVER find it in stores and I look everytime.
My dad tricked us all into eating whole jalapenos...told us it would make us run fast...to the bathroom. I guess he was right.
Anyone have any hints on how to acclimate a 9 yo cat to a new apartment? I'm hoping he adjusts well, but anythign I can do to make it easier would be better.
