Sew Mama Sew is hosting a fat quarter swap.  I figured…why not.  It sounds fun and I haven’t swapped anything in a year because it seems like I miss the sign up deadlines for swaps I’m remotely interested in.  Pretty fat quarters—how could you go wrong?  In fact–go sign up yourself.  You have until the 13th to do so.

 Aren’t they purty?

Now for something not so purty, but amazingly delicious:

Quick Black Bean Dip

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

juice of one lime

1 tsp. ground cumin

pinch chili powder (or more if you like)

good pinch salt

2 T fresh salsa (WF has a local brand that’s pretty decent in their refrigerated section…if Nathan actually liked Mexican food, I’d make my own because mine is better)

2 T olive oil

Whizz everything in the food processor.  That’s it.  Eat it with tortilla chips or put it on tacos or salad or whatever floats your boat.  It’s not super lovely looking, but it is delicious.
