Tonight was the first meeting of my Minneapolis Community Ed. watercolor class. I took this same class in the fall and loved it. The teacher is fun, easy going, and supportive. Also, since I’ve accepted the fact that I am unlikely to paint on my own, having a class on my schedule is the only way to ensure that I will release my inner artist. This term’s painting focus is ‘birds.’ I worked on a swan and played around with a setting-sun landscape.
The class has only 8 people, and it was fun to walk around and see some of their work as well.
In addition to learning, my day involved some cooking. I made a black bean salad to pair with turkey tacos.
For the black bean salad, drain and rinse one LARGE can of beans (I used one 25oz. can, but two 15oz. cans would work just fine):
Chop 3 large sweet peppers:
Chop 1/4 cup cilantro:
Mix it all together and…
…voila! Easy peasy. For dinner, I had turkey tacos with black bean salad and a half avocado:
Turkey tacos recipe will be posted tomorrow, so check back soon!
