Two Bean Pineapple Salsa

Two Bean Pineapple Salsa

Whew! It has been a while!

My poor blog has gotten neglected for the past few weeks. Between traveling for work, being sick and the weather being nice enough to make the grass grow…I have been a busy girl!

How have you all been?

I am hoping well…the nice weather has been really great to have. This winter seemed extremely long.

I do love my snow, but I was ready for some sunshine.

The one good thing about all the sunshine is that we get some awesome green plants and colorful flowers. I was so happy to see Patrick and my house look so green again.

The house

There is something about getting your landscaping and yard to look nice, that just gives you a feeling of accomplishment. OH! and…I wanted to show you all the progress Patrick and I have made in the kitchen….it is SO pretty!

We just got ourselves a new dishwasher, fridge & cooktop that are not currently installed. They are coming on June 1st…so look past the appliances ๐Ÿ™‚

Doesn’t it already look like a million times better?

I hate hate hated the fact that the walls and the cabinets were all the same color AND the appliances were all paneled. Gross. (don’t mind the fridge in the first picture, it is getting replaced shortly)

We wanted to do something that would look brighter and more open and I think we are accomplishing that with our colors and tile.

Not counting the appliances, I think we spent around $500 for the paint, back-splash, and hardware. Which to me is a deal to get your kitchen looking from the way it did to the way it does now. ๐Ÿ™‚

In celebration of the kitchen which is starting to look so nice now, we had some healthy salsa for Cinco de Mayo.

Did you have a nice holiday? It is always nice to have Cinco de Mayo on the weekend, my family always makes lots of food and enjoys it.

The fact that we got such a nice weekend and it was on a Sunday was just double winning.

There are some modifications to the recipe as we have a dietary restriction with corn in my family. My mom cannot eat it so we took it out and added a second kind of bean.

That way it is still really filling but doesn’t add any different flavors because the salsa has a enough going on.

What did you all make for Cinco de Mayo?

  1. Sounds delicious, I’ll have to give it a try! I made a salsa similar to this yesterday, it was delicious! Do you have any tips for the best way to seed a jalapeno without getting it on your fingers? It makes it tricky to take the contact lenses out later. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Dang, girl! Your house, your lawn, and this salsa all look AMAZING! #WINNING

      I know right?! Amazing what a fresh coat of paint and a new backsplash will do!

  8. Your yard looks fantastic and the kitchen definitely looks a million times better!! Love your tile choice and you can’t go wrong with white cabinetry for a sunny look. Lovely bright salsa too ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Wow.. you two have really made your house a beautiful home!! That kitchen backsplash and cabinets… fantastic!! I love light and bright and you did it in spades.. Can’t wait to see the final product… you two are doing such a good job!! I love your garden too…. it’s a really nice piece of property. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a fun and healthy salsa! I have never paired pineapple with beans…. it’s a must try. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Your kitchen looks amazing. I am loving your tile backsplash!!! I never would have thought to put beans in pineapple…but it sounds really good!!!

  11. Yay!! The kitchen looks great! Paneled appliances?? Did I read that right?? Oh my! Funny what people put in and love, isn’t it? Our house was totally white when we got it, white walls, curtains, tile on the fire place (??), appliances, floor, carpet. etc etc. Not a good mix with little kids. Now we have lots of color!
    LOVE this salsa!! I don’t think it would last long around here. It’s so hearty it’s almost a meal!
