i heart salsa

as i have mentioned before, i am trying to use up the items i have lying around. tonight, i opened a jar of salsa. i really liked target's black bean and corn salsa but they discontinued it. this still has corn and black beans in it so i take what i can get. as i was cutting up the carrots for the rice, i dipped one in salsa. how come i have never tried the combo before?? i realize it's nothing quite new or original, but what i didn't realize was how delightfully simple yet scrumptious it is! YES, WIN FOR MEEEEE.i made a serving of instant white rice because i am trying to use that up as well. i microwaved it [soooo lazyy] with cajun seasoning and a few dabs of hickory liquid smoke. i didn't cook the carrots because i hate cooked carrots--just threw them in after.

this is the result: a slightly smokey, spicy, tomato-y, sweet [carrot] goodness. i will definitely use this little concoction to finish off the rest of those items.

I dunno about that one. Carrots in salsa. Maybe cuz I'm not big on eating raw carrots.

yeah, if you don't like raw carrots then you would most definitely HATE this!

i, on the other hand, hate cooked carrots so it's a delight for me. :)
