I mentioned in my post on motorcycle boots that I ordered a pair. Well, they came in the mail! Here they are:
I'll get a better picture later. The company is Ikon & Co, which I couldn't find much info about. I bought them on the sample sale site Beyond the Rack. I wouldn't really recommend buying from them, though, because they have high shipping prices, take a long time to get to you, and charge you for shipping again if you need to return them, regardless of the reason. Shopping off of Amazon or Endless is much more consumer-friendly.
I went to Target yesterday to pick up some necessities and I fell in love with this faux leather jacket. I had a gift card and just couldn't resist.
Sexy, right? Sexy!
I made an interesting dish yesterday. Also known as weird, but it was good. I had a plantain
and a can of salsa-style low-fat refried beans.
Add some corn and artichoke hearts. I used frozen artichoke hearts but I would definitely say canned are tastier.
Brown 'em up.
And add beans.
It looks gross but there is NO way to make refried beans look good. No way. I called it Tropical Three-Fried Beans because I stir-fried refried beans. Heehee.
Serve in tortillas or over lettuce like taco salad.
Made a couple jars of leftovers.
These aren't my favorite refried beans - I like the Bearitos fat-free black refried beans best. But these were half the price. I think this would taste good with a bunch of spinach and some salsa, too.
Today I spent more time on the book, Skyped with Mom, and went to the LA Actors Tweetup. I wore my sweet new jacket and my new boots and looked pretty fly.
Do you like refried beans? I used to hate them with a fiery burning passion. I hated all beans, and refried beans were the worst. And they look like poo. But now I like them, though I only ever eat the fat-free kind, which really aren't fried at all.
