Last Post For Two Days

That's right, we are leaving tomorrow to take my brother to college and I won't be back until late Friday night. It's so sad watching him pack all his stuff and having his friends come over to say goodbye. It's pritty tense in my house right now, and when I am stressed I bake. My brother really loves the banana bites (you can find them in past posts) so I baked some more and set aside some for him. Then I hid the rest in the fridge. It's hard to focus on food when my brother leaving but I can not forget to bring things for me to eat on this trip. We are going to have dinner at Panera Bread.

Food For The Trip
- Banana bites
- Bread and peanut butter
- Granola
- Cereal
- Soymilk (the hotel has a fridge)
- Apples

Spicy bean and corn dip
I do not ever post any side dish/party foods, so I decided it was time. Enjoy.
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 T. minced chipotle chiles (or 1/2 or jalepenos)
1 t. ground cumin
1 t. chili powder
4 t. fresh lime
1/4 t. salt
1/2 cup avocado
1 can black beans
1 can no salt whole corn (8 1/2 oz.)- or simmer 1 cob.
1 cupt diced tomatoes
Mix ingredients together in a bowl and serve with tortilla chips. I used blue corn chips. You can also add it to a tortilla with some rice. Very tasty.

Wow, what a beautiful bean dip, love the blue corn chips with it as well, Kate.

I know you are sad and things are tense with your brother going off to school, and may i say that you must love him so much to be sad while he packs up and his friends come over to say goodbye.... It's one of those things in life that takes some getting used to, i know!

That was really cool of you to bake the banana bites for him. What an awesome sister you are! I appreciate that you set aside some for him and then hid the rest in the fridge!!

I'll be thinking of you and sending warm thoughts your way as i can see this is hard on you...

Bye Jordan. I love the variation of bean dips with corn I have seen. I had never hard of this stuff until last year. I really like it on salads with the chips crunched up on the top.
