So, we were recently in San Luis Obispo for Dominic's godson's First Communion and I needed to come up with an appetizer that was easy and quick to make AND tasty too. Most everyone likes chips and dip so I wanted to try a healthy dip recipe. Healthy Black Bean Dip was what I made.
Everyone LOVED it. Great for graduation parties or any back yard summer parties coming up too!
Healthy Black Bean Dip

Today was Bryce's End of School Pool Party at his teacher, Mrs. Doyle's house. All the kids really look forward to this at the end of the school year. The weather didn't really cooperate, it drizzled most of the day but that didn't stop the fun.
We had plenty of food.........
