And now I leave you with a yummy summer dip recipe: (One I've posted before, but it's too good not to share and post again!)

Black Bean and Corn Dip

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 small chopped onion
1 can black beans drained
1 can corn drained.

Mix it all together and VOILA!
A GREAT summery dip. Soooooo tasty.

Jon and I made buffalo burgers last night, tortilla chips with this delish dip and of course homemade salsa.

We added some yummy spices into our burgers. I found a great recipe for Cumin burgers.
I told my dad that Jon and I were making cumin burgers for dinner and he fell silent for a moment, then said....

"Uh what??"
I said, "Cumin burgers dad."
He comes back with, "Oh I thought you said HUMAN burgers."

Silly Dad ;)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Make this corn dip, you won't regret it! Or actually you might curse me later, because you won't be able to stop eating it ;)

See ya'll Monday!
