Kids are out of school, yayyyyyy , at last, vacations! I just can’t wait to be peacefully at home. I do not want to be running around or driving like crazy to be everywhere I need to be. I love the idea of having my kids around and cook and eat with no rush whatsoever.
I love to have a house full of kids during the summer, my kids know that this is the time to invite people over. I love it when their friends spend the afternoon with us, there is laughter and happiness all around. These days, I really do not care much about having a formal meal or making them sit at the table. I just give them very healthy snacks during the day. I remember when I was young, my mom always gave us snacks like fruit, vegetables with lemon and chili powder and of course some kind of chips during the day.
I kind of do the same with my kids and their friends, I give them fruit, veggies and a healthy dip or freshly made salsa. Like this pineapple salsa with black beans and avocados. If you think about it, it has everything you need to be strong and healthy in every dip. It has pineapple, avocado, black beans and tons of flavor.
I really love it, it is tasty and super easy to prepare. I bought the black beans at Kroger, their brand, Simple Truth is amazing. The beans are organic, they have no chemicals or nasty extra stuff and the cans are BPA free. Isn’t it great! But wait…. you do not have to pay extra for all of these benefits, they are super, super cheap.
I also bought the pineapple and the rest of the ingredients there. I really think that with this combination of delicious and super Latin summer flavors I just can’t stop thinking that there really is a recipe for every special moment. And the best thing is to have an easy recipe and buy everything you need in the same store, use the same bowl to prepare it, even the same cutting board … all easy and fast. The main idea isn’t to spend much time preparing the snacks in the kitchen but to spend a lot of time enjoying our children and their friends.
