Foodie Friday: Southwestern Black Bean Salad

There are some nights where s’mores, wine, and popcorn are dinner. Last night was one of those nights and I have no complaints. I met up with the Tone It Up girls again for a bonfire night. The fire took a little while to get started, but in the meantime, the wine kept us quite happy. And once we got the fire roaring, the s’mores were flowing!

Confession: This wasn’t our fire. We stole someone else’s for the picture. #firefail

Smores Tone It Up TIU

YUMMMMM!

I’ve been seriously craving some s’mores recently with all of the posts about s’mores cookies, ice cream, etc. so this was way past due! And there may or may not have been a second.. with banana. If only I could say this cured the craving. I think now I just want more! But it’s all about balanace, right? So that’s why I have a super healthy salad post today. Chococolate, marshmallows, and black beans.. why not?
